Women's player development programme

This season Devon RFU are again holding a series of events to encourage player development for women in Devon.

Based on feedback last season, the programme this season will consist of two opportunities to apply for funding, two opportunities to play 10s rugby, a women’s rugby specific forum meeting and an end of season survey to inform our program development for next season. We also hope to hold a Devon-wide women’s rugby development day in the 2020-2021 pre-season time

Devon RFU are supporting a series of two 10s tournaments this season across Devon, which are being held at Plymstock Albion Oaks RFC (January 26, 2020) and Crediton RFC (April 5, 2020).

The aim of these competitions is to get newer players or those returning from injury some game time, to bring together women’s clubs from across the county, and to provide an additional rugby format.

Further details and links to register for each competition are available here: Plymstock Albion Oaks 10s (https://www.facebook.com/events/561336911311051), Crediton 10s (https://www.facebook.com/events/439842793403509).

Other events in the player development calendar for this season include regular deadlines for the player development fund (further information can be found HERE), a forum to discuss issues for women and girl’s rugby (further information can be found HERE) and an end of season survey to help us develop our program for next season (please visit here for the survey: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/YZF8GCV).
