CHIPPENHAM ACADEMY OBJECTIVES
The aim of Chippenham academy is to ease and encourage the transition from junior rugby into the academy and then ultimately the seniors.
Our aim is to make the transition from junior as attractive as possible as we can, this can be done by: -
• Illustrating and promoting, to all Chippenham youth players and coaches, that there is Rugby beyond the under 16’s age group at CRFC
• To promote and provide playing opportunities to all individuals to enhance their Rugby experience here at Chippenham.
• Provide the best possible environment for our players to reach their maximum playing potential through coaching and support.
• To show the player a clear pathway from youth rugby to playing senior rugby for the “leading amateur rugby in the southwest”
This year we are running one side, most of our games are friendly's to allow for player development and for those players deemed ready and old enough, opportunities exist for exposure to the Senior this includes the 3rd, 2nd and even the 1st XVs.
The Academy trains on Tuesday evenings between 19.00 and 20.30; and on Sundays from 10.30 - 12.00. Most matches are early afternoon kick-offs.
