The Cornwall Rugby Football Union is working hard to respond to the needs of its clubs and members and to that end earlier this year an online survey was sent out to all players in Cornwall asking them to identify certain areas that they would like to see improved. Highlighted by the players in this survey was the need for continued Player Training Development opportunities (as currently exists at the youth level).
To respond to this request the Player Development committees have combined to use their resources to offer to ALL SENIOR players (both male and female) in the county three specialist training days.
These days will be to enable players to enhance their own skills sets for personal development which in turn will enhance their playing experience back at their clubs.
