Under 16’ Selection 2016-2017

I should like to take this opportunity to extend my sincere thanks to all of the players and parents for the support and attendance at the game assessment evenings this season. As you can all imagine the selectors have had a most difficult task, bearing in mind the constraints placed upon them in terms of the time span allotted to them by the RFU to conduct this exercise and especially giving every nominee enough game time to show their talents. Decisions must be made under such conditions and therefore I wish to notify you that the players listed below have been selected for Cheshire Under 16’s. Please note that all players listed below must attend the first training session. The training sessions will be posted on the Cheshire website as soon as we have confirmation of the selected venues.

CHESHIRE U16’S NOMINATION FORM 2016-2017-Updated 12.09.16

U16 trial 2016

We are inviting you to nominate players from your club/school that you consider to be of the required standard to represent Cheshire at 16 Group Level for season 2016-17.

This procedure is starting later than in previous years due to the fact that the County fixtures will now be held in January and February 2017.

Boys who were members of the Cheshire East, Central or West District squads at U15 level last season(2015-16) need not be nominated, their names should already be on record. However you may have to inform us if there has been a change in the player’s details.

They will be invited to attend a Development/Trial session on Fri 28 Oct at Wirral RFC(details at a later date via the Cheshire Rugby web site). On the basis of performance at this session boys may be invited to join the Cheshire U16 Squad.

It is hoped that boys may also be seen playing for School and or Club.

If you feel that you still have boys of the required standard for County U16 rugby who were not included in the Cheshire County and District Representative sides at U15 last season please nominate these to attend a trial at Wilmslow. H.S. on Mon 17 Oct 4.30 for a 5.00pm start.

A nomination form is attached with this letter. If any boys show the potential to be County players they will be invited to join the Cheshire U16 Squad for season 2016-17.

Nominations should reach me by Fri 30 Sept. Please not that players who turn up on the day for whom no nomination form has been received by the due date will not be allowed to trial.

All the information will be on the Cheshire web site www.cheshirerfu.co.uk so clubs and schools may not be contacted directly about the arrangements. Selected players to the Cheshire U16 Squad will be informed via the Cheshire rugby web site. This will also contain information regarding squad sessions and County fixtures.

AGE GRADE RUGBY UPDATE – August 2016

AGE GRADE RUGBY UPDATE 2 – JULY 2016

Following the recent Age Grade Rugby Update sent earlier in the month, I am pleased to outline progress as we reach the “5 weeks to go” point before the start of the 2016-17 season.  Please continue to pass on the information to colleagues and parents in your clubs, schools and colleges to help everyone prepare for kick off in September.

 Regulation 15, including Rules of Play

The confirmed Rules of Play for each age group have been completed and are attached. These rules, along with the Age Grade regulations for 2016-17, will go live on englandrugby.com/regulations on 1st August along with other documents to support the delivery of Age Grade Rugby.  Please share these rules, along with the previously circulated Regulation 15 and guidance information, with people across your club, school and/or college.

These Rules of Play, in which the XV-a-side game starts at U14, are the stated maximums that players can progress in that year, and it’s important that coaches and teachers ensure that players have the ability, competence and confidence before progressing.

Age Grade Rugby Brochure

An updated version, following a minor edit, of the brochure is attached and should replace any previous versions.  A printed batch of these have been sent to Honorary Secretaries in clubs along with Teachers in Charge of rugby in schools and colleges across the country for them to share with coaches, staff and parents ahead of the new season.  The document includes confirmation of all the Rules of Play and competitive menu and helpful information to keep our player’s safety at the front of everyone’s minds.

Line out at U14-U16

The line out changes at U14-U16 are confirmed and can be observed in the Age Grade Brochure and Regulation 15. Further information about these changes will follow in the coming weeks and these changes will be supplemented by a specific line out CPD and supporting video resources.

In the lead up to the start of the season we will be ensuring, via direct mail and social media, that these changes are communicated to all involved in the delivery of Age Grade Rugby.  These changes, based on the principals of ”Player Centred, Development Driven and Competition Supported” should be considered by coaches and teachers within all their training sessions and games.   These changes follow robust research and consultation within the game starting in 2011 and  their impact will be reviewed annually.

As ever, further information can be found at www.englandrugby.com/agegraderugby and if you have any specific questions on Age Grade Rugby please do contact us on agegraderugby@rfu.com.  Please remember to pass on this information so that everyone is informed and ready to enjoy another great season in 2016-17.
