Girl Power award 2006/07
Cockermouth RFC (Cumbria RFU)
The girl’s team was formed in September 2006 and grew quickly. By October, seven girls were training regularly and additional coaches had been recruited and were carrying out Level 1 qualifications funded by the club. By the end of the season, eighteen players were registered, a further eight had taken part in training sessions, and the girls actively go out recruiting new players for the squad.
The 2006/07 season also saw Cockermouth RFC establish a Ladies team, with 19 players and their own coach; holding joint training sessions with the Girls team to help secure a development pathway for the club’s teenagers.
