With more people exposed to the game the RFU are hosting events in your area to bring together all those involved in providing rugby for 16 – 24 year olds to discuss the issues that are faced with retaining players.  These events will aim to:

·         Enhance the skills, knowledge and insight of coaches, referees, team managers and medics working with players of this age

·         Create an opportunity for regular interaction, constructive debate and sharing of ideas between the key people in these age groups

·         Reinforce the importance of this age group to the game 

·         Focus on themes important to player retention

·         Give you an opportunity to come up with the solutions and put these solutions into action locally
