Your News England Women's 7s is back and here is your chance to get involved

Following the announcement that Rugby 7s will become an Olympic Sport in 2016, the Rugby Football Union for Women (RFUW) is on the lookout for the Rugby 7s stars of tomorrow!

The RFUW is unveiling a new Rugby 7s programme this season and this is your chance to have a go, and if you’re good enough you could be running out in an England jersey.

England 7s trials will be held on May 15th at Surrey Sports Park in Guildford and the trials are completely OPEN. You don’t need a huge amount of 7s experience and players can be selected from both inside and outside of the current RFUW Performance Pathways. Those attending trials will be tested on their fitness, rugby skills and game play.

“This is a new and a very exciting initiative from the RFUW,” said Nicola Ponsford, the RFUW’s Head of Performance. “We think there are lots of players outside of our current system with huge amounts of talent who we’ve never seen before. Some of these players may only just have started playing at University or College for example but have the potential to become fantastic players. We really want anyone who has a good level of fitness to come along and show us what they can do. This really is a chance to unearth new talent.”

And if you are selected into the England 7s squad, you’ll receive strength and conditioning training, one-on-one coaching and the opportunity to train with England’s top 7s coaches. Plus, of course, represent your country in the England’s 7s programme which will see England compete in Rugby Rocks, the West Country 7s, the Newquay 7s and the European 7s later this year.

To submit your application to attend the open trials go to https://www.jotform.com/form/10660735368. Entries must be received by May 7th.
