Being part of the Young Rugby Ambassador programme gives you the opportunity to gain recognition for your involvement in supporting rugby – there are countless ways to get involved, and valuable benefits, from professional skills to free stash
Who can be a YRA?
Anybody aged 14-25 and wants to support rugby in their local area. This can be at your club, school, college, university or within your community, where ever you feel you can contribute. You can be a group of mates or just on your own supported by your club, tutor, teacher or committee.
You can decide how often and for how long you help out. It could be refereeing a match once a week or helping out at an event once a year. There’s a huge variety of ways to support rugby in your area, from managing a club’s social media to coaching mini’s and juniors.
Here are some the ways you can get involved on and off the pitch:
- Ambassador roles
- Events organising
- Social Media
If you have any questions about any of these roles, you can email YRA2015@RFU.com.
How it works?
The YRA programme is in partnership with vInspired, who provide the tool to set yourself a goal for the number of hours you want to complete and will help you keep track of what you have achieved. The more hours you give, the more we give back to you.
The milestones you will receive reward are; 10,30,50 and 100 hours. You will receive certificates and exclusive YRA stash.
This guidance will help you with what sort of evidence we are looking for at each award. Make sure you let us know what you have done, where you are volunteering, who the main contact is, and your kit size. (Please note, the girls’ sizes are quite small!)
