In September 2016 a new Age Grade Rugby programme was introduced based on the principles to grow Rugby for children in England, through playing rugby. This is at the heart of the Age Grade Rugby framework for 6-18yrs old.
This is based on the game being player centred, development driven and competition supported.
Age Grade Rugby helps boys and girls learn and enjoy the 15-a-side game
through age appropriate building blocks that put inclusivity and skill development first.
With more young people enjoying the game for longer and into their adult years.
