Dear Newcomer /Existing Member
As allocated by the RFU registration will spread over two Sundays, September 6th and
September 13th 2009. We are hoping to split registration by age group and input as
much information on to our system as possible on these days.
We hope this will aide communication and administration within each age group.
Please bear with us as there will be a high volume of data to process. If you do
experience problems with communication, let us know and we will endeavour to
rectify any issues.
We ask for one payment at the beginning of the season which runs from the first
Sunday in September to the last Sunday in April. This covers all training sessions,
