The NLD U14-16 Competition dates have been slightly updated, please take note of the very important change below.

U14 & U16 Sevens will now take place on Sunday 9th April 2017

U14-16 Finals will now take place on Sunday 30th April 2017

Basically we have swapped the original dates scheduled for the Sevens and the Finals to avoid any clash at all with the Finals and the Easter School Holidays.  We hope that this small change will make clubs lives easier in planning for an NLD Competition Final.  We have considered our options to avoid the Easter Holidays clashing with anything at all but with the new Youth Structured Season and the ‘Club’ & ‘School’ weeks we don’t have any other options.  This was a hot topic of conversation when we looked at the dates originally in early 2016 and on re inspection we feel this is the fairer option for clubs.

If your club is potentially going to be involved in the Final and this date change could pose an issue for you then please contact Nicole Brown no later than Monday 9th January.
