Rugby News - The First Hurdle Tackled
The College would like to congratulate five Rugby students who have successfully gained a place on the Player Development for Girls programme.
The England Rugby Union Association has recently launched a new Developing Player Programme for girls and we are delighted that five Ivybridge Community College students have already taken up this offer.
The College would like to congratulate Megan Sams, Nicole Mitchell, Izzy Firth, Maddison Spampanato and Sophie Gilvear who have successfully gained a place on the programme.
The initiative will work closely with schools and Rugby Clubs to provide training, development and competitive opportunities for young players.
In addition, Maddison Spampanato took to the pitch at Twickenham Stadium with 49 other aspiring referees as part of a RFU Match Official Development drive, with the aim of introducing more female match officials into the game.
Well done everyone and good luck!
