This year TWRFC have changed the way in which their Academy will operate. We are developing a strong Colts age group (U17 and U18) and this will be our Academy going forward. We have brought in a new Head Coach, Paul Hathaway, who has a wealth of experience and is an RFU Level 3 qualified coach. The Academy has been entered into the Colts League and Colts Cup and our ambition is to see a progression of players into our senior set up and competing at the highest levels. There will be no selection criteria but players are expected to be committed to developing their rugby career and understand the expectations and standards of Academy rugby.
It is an exciting time for TWRFC and this progression of the Academy is another building block to making the club as successful as it can be.
This season the Academy builds on our ‘One Club’ ethos where senior and youth sections come together to progress the club and be the best we can be. The Academy is a pivotal link between the two and I am delighted to welcome Paul Hathaway on board with the experience and knowledge he will bring. Laurence Taylor, Youth Chairman.
