Women & Girls' Performance Hubs

BATH RUGBY IS DELIGHTED TO LAUNCH FOUR PERFORMANCE HUBS

These pilot hubs continue our pledge to develop a sustainable and inclusive pathway to the elite game across our region for players and coaches - in preparation for our bid to enter the Allianz Premier 15s in 2023/24 season.

Bath Rugby endeavours to provide local, homegrown players with the opportunity to thrive and compete in the Blue, Black and White.

HOW TO NOMINATE


NOMINATION CRITERIA

Nominees do not need rugby union experience, we welcome and encourage nominations for players who are new to the sport but demonstrate excellence in a B.A.T.H characteristic.

Nominations are also welcomed for players who are not currently stand out performers but possess the potential to demonstrate excellence in Basics, Athleticism, Tactical Awareness and Heart.

The principle for Performance Hubs is to identify players with long-term potential and provide monthly sessions where they can improve and take away learnings to their club/school environment. These hubs are not fixture or competition-based, as a group they will not play fixtures against other teams, but there will be opportunities to learn from others through joint training sessions and activities in the 2022/23 season.

Who can nominate players?
