Nominations are only accepted when submitted using the official form for this round of nominations and must be submitted prior to the deadline closing at midnight on the 29th January.

U13 Nominations:

For this round of nominations, each school / club can nominate a maximum of three players and all nominated players will be invited to attend an Assessment day on the 20th February at Trowbridge RFC.

Nominated players will receive an e-mail from us on or before the 5th February. This is provided that the nomination was submitted prior to the deadline and the e-mail address was accurate. We recommend that you add to your safe sender list particularly if you use a hotmail / outlook account. 

Nomination FAQs

The player I want to nominate cannot attend in February, shall I still nominate them?

For players who cannot attend in February, this will be our only Assessment opportunity for U13 players this season so we suggest you may wish to use your nomination for a player that can attend. The U13 programme is merely an introduction for the DPP with delivery increasing at U14 level. Entry points for the U14 programme will be available in both the Summer and Autumn. Players who are nominated for the U13 programme and cannot attend the Assessment will be automatically invited to the next one if the complete a RSVP outlining this.

For transparency and fairness we do not typically allow players to trial during the sessions unless there are deemed to be exceptional circumstances. 

How do I know if my nomination has been submitted?

Coaches / Teachers - when you get to the end of your nomination, please ensure you click submit. You will then see a thumbs up icon with “thanks for completing this typeform”. This is confirmation that your form will have been submitted, you will not receive a separate e-mail confirmation. 

Can I submit more than three nominations?

There will be future opportunities to nominate players from this age group so we ask at this stage that you keep your nominations to a maximum of three.
