Withycombe are set to stage an Open Day for older youth players to hopefully get involved and take up rugby.
It’s an interesting idea for there must be youngsters in the catchment area who have yet to discover the joys of the sport. There may also be youngsters currently playing other sports who might like to switch to a different discipline.
Saturday, August 17, is the day in question with a 10am start. There is a Withy 1st XV fixture that day which means those attending the event can make a full day of it.
The club are planning to have food available and the bar will also be open.
In terms of the Open Day, the hope is to recruit new players for next season’s Under-16 side so that targets youngsters who will be in school years 10 or 11 this September.
There will be coaches from the club’s 1st XV on duty as well as other guest coaches and the plan is to modify session to include absolute newcomers to the sport.
