Academy U13 DPP induction session

Bristol Bears Rugby Academy U13’s Developing Player Programme induction session for U13s will take place at Hornets RFC on Thursday, 20th February/Friday 21st February.

This is the first step on the DPP programme. To apply for a place, click here.

Address:
Hornets RFC
Hutton Moor Rd
Weston-Super-Mare
BS22 8LY

The deadline for applications to join the Bristol Bears Rugby Academy U13’s Developing Player Programme is Friday, January 31st.

The process of application for the programme has been designed in order that the players take responsibility for their involvement in the programme, rather than the nomination from the coach/teacher being the only interaction.

This is not only a good indicator of the boy’s intent and commitment; it is also a first step towards them taking responsibility.

With that in mind, the teacher/coach should complete the nomination form by clicking here

Parents will be briefed to refrain from completing the application for the boys, or from enforcing the boys complete it. It is very important that the player applies because he wants to apply. 

Please find below, a description of many ‘desirable attributes’ which align to being a Bear, and which will assist you and other coaches/teachers in identifying the players. It is not anticipated that the players will be able to do everything on the list, but they must have one or two physical or technical/tactical attributes which they perform exceptionally well and should be able to demonstrate many of the others.
