Moseley get Seal of Approval

07 January 2004

National Two club Moseley have been awarded one of the RFU's Prestigious Seal of Approval certificates.
The award, effectively a kitemark for rugby clubs, is given only to clubs who meet the highest standards in providing a safe,effective and child-friendly environment in which youngsters can learn rugby.
Moseley's mini and junior section reached the high standards and satisfied the criteria required at various stages of the application process.
Moseley have become only the second Birmingham club, after Yardley & District who won their Seal of Approval a year ago, to obtain the award. More than 200 youngsters play rugby in Moseley's Mini and Junior Section each Sunday morning.
The Seal of Approval scheme is a joint inititiative between the RFU, Sport England and the Active Sports programme, designed to raise the standards of youth rugby across the country.
Jim Barton, chairman of Moseley's Mini and Junior Section, said: "For the last 18 months the Mini and Junior Section Committee has been spearheading a drive towards achieving the Clubmark award.
"The section had to undergo a rigorous accreditation programme and we are thrilled to have achieved the necessary standard.
"I would like to thank the Mini and Junior Committee, all of our coaches and officials, Richard Webb of Birmingham Active Sports and Gary Meechan, the RFU's Rugby Development Officer for North Midlands, for helping us secure the award."
The Seal of Approval certificate will be formally presented to Moseley at their home National Two game against Stourbridge on January 17.
