Reimbursement for Course Fees

 

The CRFU is keen to encourage and support members of our clubs who wish to improve their skill levels to help to grow and develop the game in Cornwall. Many clubs provide financial support to their members when they undertake First Aid, Coaching or Referee training. In addition, members of clubs affiliated to the CRFU who attend approved First Aid, Coaching or Referee courses may be entitled to a contribution towards the cost of the course from the CRFU.

FREE Player Development Days Open To All Adult Players (Male and Female)

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.

 

WHEN:
(1) 13th December (Sunday)
(2) 15th February (Monday)
(3) 13th April (Wednesday)
 
WHERE:
Session 1 & 3 Truro College
Session 2 Newquay Sports Centre.
 
TIMINGS:
10.00 - 13.00 (Sunday session)
19.00 - 21.00 (Monday & Wednesday session)
 
These sessions will be FREE to attend.
 
However you will need to notify Maggie Notman (Chair Player Development Committee, Seniors) of your attendance so we can arrange for the correct number of coaches and for sandwiches afterwards.
 
You can do this by email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., 
stating your club and playing position.
Any queries please call Maggie on 07967 684443.
