YRAs In Action

There is lots of great work happening across the country in the YRA programme with some exciting projects engaging the local community with the club and getting more people playing rugby. The following information covers some ideas for projects you could run and some case studies where YRAs have been really successful:

Case studies

First World War memorial challenge

2014 marks 100 years since the start of the First World War. Tens of thousands of English rugby players lost their lives in the Great War. The RFU and World Rugby Museum are encouraging clubs to honour the contributions of their own members. The following documents will help you to plan how you can turn this project into reality at your club:

YRA rewards

In November 2014, 12 proactive Young Rugby Ambassadors from across the country were nominated by their RDOs, together with four National Youth Council members, to attend the England Training Camp at Pennyhill Park where they had the opportunity to interview England Internationals Joe Marler and Jack Nowell.

All participants had a great time and the video, which captures the spirit of the day, can be viewed here. We hope you will download it for use in clubs and to recruit more YRAs.
