Rugby Club Network
The RFU Community Clubs are the outlet beyond the schools gates for both staff, students and their families providing a safe, fun friendly activities. They continue to be the heart of any rugby journey from playing, coaching, refereeing and general volunteering to watching and supporting. Clubs are all about bringing you into the rugby family.
Clubs that have achieved either whole club or mini & youth RFU Seal of Approval have committed to delivering safe, fun and quality experiences for everyone involved. They have proved and agreed to delivering high standards and been awarded RFU accreditation as a result.
With 1800 clubs across the country, of which over 800 run junior and youth rugby, there are many opportunities to get your school involved with the rugby network. They can offer support with facilities provision and delivery of your rugby union programmes.
Premiership Rugby Clubs
The RFU work alongside the 12 Premiership Clubs working with their community departments to offer local programmes, opportunities and delivery of the Regional Academies. Schools are a particular area where the top clubs can bring resources into play for the benefit of young players.
Colleagues at Premier Rugby Limited (PRL) and the RFU are in regular contact to look at driving programmes jointly and ensuring that there is a co-ordinated approach across the country.
