From Wednesday 17th until Tuesday 23rd November, England Rugby will be running our first ever Club Player Panel.
We are asking for players to apply to take part via this link: http://englandrugby.PLAYER-PANEL-RECRUITMENT-SCREENING.alchemer.eu/s3/
We have heard from the National Rugby Survey that Refereeing, Coaching and Player Welfare are the most significant barriers to retaining players – or encouraging them to play more frequently. This season, we want to explore these topics in more depth & test possible solutions by conducting a Player Panel.
Over the course of a week, we are going to explore these issues and more in online focus groups, interviews, chatrooms and polls. There will be an average of 10-15 mins of activities per day, all conducted online.
The views of players will be shared anonymously with the RFU Board and Council, and will shape courses and RFU support in the 22/23 season.
As a thank you, we’re giving away an England shirt, £50 England Rugby Store vouchers and discounts to those who take part.
We are looking to recruit adult players from a mix of backgrounds, across:
- Playing Position
- Age – must be 16+
- Team level
- Playing frequency
We will select 100 panellists from those who apply to take part on: http://englandrugby.PLAYER-PANEL-RECRUITMENT-SCREENING.alchemer.eu/s3/.
Our terms and conditions are attached to this email.
We are asking CBs to forward this message to clubs as soon as possible. We will report back to CBs on the feedback from players on coaching, refereeing and welfare in the New Year.
