NLD are pleased to release the 2018-19 Age Grade Rugby Calendar which includes key dates for the Age Grade game next season. The calendar has been produced in discussion with a number of key stakeholders throughout NLD including the Heads of Competitive Rugby, Education, Representative Rugby, Women & Girls as well as Tigers Academy.
The calendar sits fully within the RFU’s Age Grade Rugby framework and has been approved by the RFU for the coming season.
Please share this information within your clubs and institutions and encourage dialogue with each other in the next couple of months to get well ahead of any potential conflicts for next season. The Calendar particularly aids planning for players who play in more than one environment.
Block or friendly fixtures can be played throughout any part of the season and the Calendar signals how player availability for these will be affected by other activities.
Please also remember to share and promote the Age Grade Codes of Practice which support coaches and teachers with the application of regulation and delivering Age Grade Rugby – www.englandrugby.com/codesofpractice
If you have any queries regarding the calendar then please do not hesitate to get in touch and we will be happy to help you.
