Age Grade Calendar
2021 / 2022 Age Grade Playing Calendar
Due to the impact of Covid–19 it has not been possible to release the Age Grade Playing Calendar for 2021/22. We are aiming to have this out in December to enable planning for next season.
Updated November 2020
2020 / 2021 Age Grade Playing Calendar
The Age Grade season, as previously communicated, is extended and will end on Monday 31 May 2021.
Flexibility is permitted and encouraged in the approved 2020/21 calendars to keep as many players engaged and included as possible. This requires local collaboration and decisions by CBs with CSUs and other age grade stakeholders. There is no need for national approval
Once we recommence contact rugby, CB representative rugby activity will pick up from that point – there is no regression to, or rearrangement of, what has not happened this season. However, what remains scheduled can still go ahead, including, at this point, the Under 17 male and Under 18 and 15 female programmes after Christmas.
The Under 18 Academy league programme has been revised for this season, reduced from 8 matches to 4 in a shorter window. The dates are the weekends of 12/13/14 & 19/20/21 February 2021 and 5/6/7 & 12/13/14 March 2021.
For clarity, the only exemptions for elite play in Academies is in the 13 RFU licensed academies – any other activity titled “academy” has no exemption and must return under the community rugby protocols.
