Colleges in the Community
The rugby community and clubs provide safe, fun, friendly activity beyond education and into the local community for young people and adults.
Through both its local staff and the tools outlined here, the RFU supports and promotes the formation of partnerships between colleges and community clubs.

By working collaboratively with these partners, there are many benefits both to the college and to its students.
The RFU has a club links toolkit and models of good practice that, along with its local staff, can help you set up an effective and sustainable link. Providing such links for colleges ensures that you can engage and integrate with the wider community on equal terms. This encourages students into lifelong involvement in the game.
