As an ERSC member you are helping to develop English rugby at all levels.
The RFU is committed to building the future of rugby in England, which means that 100% of all profit made from each ERSC membership is invested straight back into the game. The RFU invests approximately £19million a year into English rugby. This has helped to improve access and standards at every level for the benefit of all participants:
- Rugby development in schools continues to grow, with 4,000 coaching sessions now taking place each month in primary and secondary schools, further and higher education colleges and clubs
- 3,500 newly qualified coaches at levels 1-3 and Club Coaching Coordinators are now in 70% of clubs with mini sections
- 1,600 new adult players
- 1,200 new volunteers
- More than 50 social inclusion programmes have engaged disabled people, minority ethnic groups and young people from inner-city and rural areas
- Standards on the pitch have improved, with a 51% increase in the number of referees undertaking the Entry Level Refereeing Award
