Middlesex Community Rugby
Community rugby is all about grass roots rugby and one of Middlesex Rugby's key goals for the 2010 - 2011 season was to provide support to all our clubs and improve commuication channels between clubs and County. A dedicated committee, chaired by Peter Baveystock, was established to achieve these aims, and a number of initiatives implemented including the appointment of Graham Lee as Funding and Facilities manager and the setting up of a club mentor scheme.
The Community Rugby Comittee is responsible for the following areas:
Volunteers: Develop and strengthen volunteering within the County by working with the RFU Volunteer Executive and Club Volunteer Coordinators
Women & Girls: Facilitate the growth in the women & girls game at Club level
Students: Strengthen and grow all Student Rugby with an “adult game” outcome
Schools & the Wider Community: Develop a single reporting channel for non Club 6-18 Rugby
Mini & Junior Rugby: Provide support, help and appropriate competitions for Clubs who have Mini or Youth sections
Club Development: Provide support for all Clubs to become more sustainable and increase participation
Club Referee & Coaching Development: Encourage the growth of Club Refereeing and Coaching Coordinators
Group meetings playing an important part in communications between club and county. For further information about the Middlesex groups, please visit the Groups page.
At all levels of the game, funding is an important part of growth for the future, and our Facilities and Funding manager Graham Lee is happy to advise on any funding that might be available, and how to go about securing it. There is more information on the Facilities & Funding page.
The Community Rugby Committee meets monthly at clubs around the county. If you would like them to come to your club to discuss the issues that affect you, please contact committee secretary Ian Webster at firstname.lastname@example.org
