With an opportunity for U7, U8 and U9 age groups (2013-14 Season) to take part in a development Tag Festival, with the possibility of playing on the Twickenham pitch at half time of one of the games, plus for the U10 – U15 age groups a chance to take part in a Premiership Rugby Coaching Clinic, what better way to start the first weekend of the rugby season alongside witnessing two Aviva Premiership matches at Twickenham.

Description: U7, U8 & U9 Tag Festival
Date: Saturday 7th September 2013

Team Entry Fee: £140.00 (8 Juniors & 2 Adult Tickets)

Saracens are now looking to finalise our U7, U8 & U9 teams to represent Saracens in the London Double Tag Festival playing under the new rules of play. The entry fee includes eight Junior and two adult tickets per team. Within this package there is also the chance for a number of successful teams from the mornings development matches to play on the Twickenham pitch at half time during one of the Aviva Premiership fixtures. Please can you ensure you or your team managers provide me with an indication via email if they are interested in entering as soon as possible.

Due to expected high demand places will be allocated on a first come first served basis and payment for entry must therefore be received along with the attached entry form in advance of Friday 19th July to secure your place.  We would welcome clubs who wish to enter more than one team at any age group to help accommodate your larger squads.

Please note under the RFU continuum we are only allowed to do a TAG festival with the U9’s. We are able to accommodate U9’s for the coaching session (as below) and if this would be a preference we are able to go through all the new laws of play and relevant coaching content for the new season with them.

Date: Saturday 7th September 2013
Venue: Richmond College*
Player Entry Fee: £25.00 (Includes ticket)

The coaching session is an opportunity for U9 – U15 players to receive advice from Saracens, London Irish, Quins and Wasps. The session fee includes an hour and half coaching, a T-Shirt and a match ticket for the London Double Header. The coaching content will mirror the drills, games and exercises of the professionals and aims to provide a fun packed session for the first weekend of the season leaving your young players enthused, energetic and prepared for the months ahead.

We encourage clubs to make group bookings, although individual bookings will also be accepted for the coaching session.  Please can you ensure you or your U10 – U15 managers, or parents booking individuals, provide me with an indication via email if they are interested in taking part as soon as possible.
