Herts Rugby Awareness Week 16-20 November

A new initiative to spread the game in the county will be launched next month. Herts Rugby Awareness Week is aimed to benefit both boys and girls rugby across the county.

The aim is that during the week of Monday 16th November to Friday 20th November at least one boy and one girl who play club rugby, will talk in each school, during assembly, to tell other young people about the game, including-
  • the fun
  • the friendship
  • the respect, good sportsmanship, discipline, within the game
  • where to play rugby in Herts
  • to ask their school (if relevant) to develop both girls and boys rugby teams
  • keeping healthy and active through training as well as matches
Permission is being sought for the young speakers to be able to wear their rugby shirt in school that day.

Posters (such as the one on the right - click on the picture to see an enlarged version), leaflets and a newsletter are being produced to go out that week too along with hopefully a DVD of Herts Youth Rugby for every school to show during that week.

Clubs will shortly be asked to help find players might be interested in speaking in their school assembly so please be ready to volunteer. The aim is to bring new players into the game, as well as encourage more schools to develop girls rugby and enter teams into the schools leagues and into the Emerging Schools competitions.

The following local schools are being targeted:
  • Knights Templar
  • Fearnhill
  • The Highfield
  • Hitchin Boys
  • The Priory
  • Hitchin Girls
