Age Grade Rugby

GRFU's Age Grade Committee aims to support the delivery of age grade rugby across Gloucestershire, by

  • Providing advice and guidance to age grade sections on current issues and enduring themes
  • Ensuring a strong communication flow from club age grade sections into the GRFU Age Grade Committee and then onto to all stakeholders, including (but not limited to):
    • GRFU Management Board
    • Other GRFU Sector Committees
    • Associated Referee Societies
    • GRFU Discipline Panel
  • Ensuring strong communication from the RFU/ GRFU into age grade sections
  • Advocating best practice across age grade sections - acknowledge it and ensure it is shared widely.
  • Supporting the growth of the game and collaboration between clubs, schools and other bodies.
  • Supporting the delivery of governance, safeguarding, competitions and discipline by other GRFU Sector Heads


Throughout our business the committee will promote and advocate:

  • The core values of rugby – teamwork, respect, enjoyment, discipline and
  • Coaches, parents and all adults (involved in the game) being child centred and development driven.
  • Continuous development and upskilling of coaches.
  • Creation of the best possible environment for age grade rugby, so that everyone stays in the game longer.


The Age Grade Committee has representatives from every Combination within the GRFU – please do contact them if you need advice, guidance or wish to raise an issue for consideration by the committee.
