DPP Information

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. The DPP covers the age groups Under 13 to Under 16 and details of the new framework will be sent out in May 17.  

Nominations for Season 2017-18 for the U14, U15 and U16s will be requested in June and the selection process will start in September.  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 November 2017.    

All clubs and schools will be contacted for nominations at the appropriate time and details of the full programme will be published when finalised.
