WASPS COACHCLASS AT WRFC
'Thought was another excellent Wasps Coachclass at Westclifff the coaches were excellent with the kids seemed to throughly enjoy - great value for money and loved the Brita water bottle every player received' 'It was awesome' ' I asked my son how his day went and the rugby just came in first ahead of the pasta bake' Just a few quotes from the recent Wasps Coachclass at WRFC. There were over 60 players taking part from 5 different clubs. With this in mind there is a plan to invite Wasps back for another course in the October half term. Westcliff players have a fantastic reputation for winning awards at the coachclass sessions wih WRFC players winning the Player of the Week at mini and academy last week.

The time of the year for tours is upon us. Your age group manager must make sure that you take the correct procedures. There is a check list on the RFU website, which is the best place for up to date information about what to do before and while you are on tour. What you have to do if you have unaccompanied players under the age of 18. Don't leave it to the last minute, if anyone has to apply for a DBS ( new name for CRB) it will take time. Even a tour manager needs a DBS so make sure you check!
