Developing player programme (DPP)

The Developing Player Programme is a partnership between the RFU, Saracens and Kent RFU and has recently undergone some changes based on the new RFU DPP Framework. 

Nominations for Season 2017-18 for the U14, U15 and U16s have been requested from clubs and schools and the deadline is Monday 17th July. 

Assessment dates are 

U14, U15 – 3rd August at Sutton Valance School, 7pm
U16 – 10th August at Sutton Valance School, 7pm
(Please note only players that have been nominated will be permitted to attend)

For the U13s the squads are not permitted by RFU Regulations to be put in place until February 2018 so nominations for that age group will be in October/November 2017.
