Dear Club/University/College Coach,
We would like to invite club coaches to nominate players to attend the North Midlands Women’s assessments on the dates stated below.
North Midlands RFU consists of clubs and universities within Greater Birmingham, Worcestershire & Herefordshire and Shropshire.
To be eligible to represent North Midlands you must play for a club within North Midlands or live in an address within North Midlands.
The selection criteria is as follows:
- Catch/Pass: Can the player pass off left/right hand over distance of at least 5metres demonstrating effective push thru on pass and reaching hands on catch. Key positions will be expected to pass further distances, e.g.: 9s/10s (10metres)
- Body Management: can the player demonstrate positive and strong core body shape under pressure, keeping hips and shoulder height in line with core engaged?
- Tackle Technique: Can the player demonstrate an effective tackle technique by getting feet in close, positive shoulder connection and leg drive?
- Can the player produce “Go Forward” when carrying the ball & identify space in attack by using scanning methods and communication skills
Please note; its important to stress that nominated players need to have these attributes to attend assessments.
All these attributes will be put to the test during the North Midlands Women’s Assessments that will take place on Wednesday 11th December 2019 at Woodrush RFC
Would clubs and universities please nominate players for assessments NO LATER THAN SUNDAY 8TH DECEMBER 2019?
To enable selected players to plan their time we have listed the proposed training schedule on the registration form.
