This Afternoon, Withycombe RFC were privileged to have a visit from Devon RFU President, Treve Mitchell. The visit was to re-award the club with its RFU Accreditation.
England Rugby state that “The Club Accreditation scheme is based upon the six Key Drivers identified as crucial to a strong club:
1. Retaining & Developing Players
2. Recruiting New Players
3. Recruiting & Retaining High Quality Coaches, Volunteers & Referees
4. Effective & Efficient Facilities
5. Effective & Efficient Management and Governance
6. Integration with the Local Community
Each of these Key Drivers, together with the Core Values of the game, is represented within the Club Accreditation scheme and together they represent the component parts of a strong, sustainable club.”
The club is incredibly proud to receive the award as it acknowledges all the hard work put in by all those involved with the club and encourages us to continue to work to the values set by the RFU.
Chairman of Players and Development for the Devon RFU, John Drew said “Nobody can underestimate the hard work put in by all the committee at the club to get this award”
