The Kent Youth Committee promotes the efficient and effective development of youth rugby through the organisation of appropriate, formally approved and organised county events from U12 to U18 age levels. They liaise with clubs and disseminate relevant RFU information and guidance to key personnel in club youth sections.
The reintroduction of limited contact training has been approved by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (‘DCMS’) and moves The Return to Community Rugby Roadmap from Stage C to Stage D. Clubs will be able to start limited and restricted contact rugby training and organise inter-club non-contact fixtures. Please see our news item for restrictions around contact. Any inter-club non-contact fixtures should be focused on Ready4Rugby, a non-contact game, enabling two teams of up to 10 players to engage in training and match activity in their own club environment.
We have to reach Stage F (which will not be reached until at least four weeks after Stage E) before full contact competitive league rugby can commence. There will be no age grade national competition matches in September and therefore confirm there will be no Kent Age Grade competitions in Sept either.
