Mini & Youth Seal of Approval Club of the Year award 2006/07
Jersey RFC (Hampshire RFU)
The mission statement of Jersey RFC is 'to provide educational and social opportunities for all young people regardless of ability and gender, to realise their fullest potential by playing rugby union to their highest standard in a safe, non-discriminatory environment'.
Last season Jersey RFC increased their youth players from 270 to 430, despite the considerable handicap of being based on an island 108 miles from the nearest point on the English coast. They support 11 squads from U7 to U18, with an average of 39 members in each age group, taking part in 167 matches, made possible by the assistance of 80 volunteers.
