Young players are the future of our sport and we are here to cater for their needs further, so they commit to a lifetime of Touch.
“Why wait until tomorrow to discover the champion you are today” was the original strapline when the first Junior Touch Championships was held back in 2014, consisting of only a Mixed 18s division comprising of just six teams.
2015 saw the addition of both the Boys 18s and Girls 18s divisions, whilst it wasn’t until 2016 in the Nederlands when the Mixed 15s was seen. Since then, the Youth scene has further developed slowly, with just a single organised competitive event per year for these age groups.
Since then, the Youth scene has further developed slowly, with one organised competitive event per year for these age groups.
Our ambition is to continue to assist the growth, by adding a 20s division in the short to medium term too.
Our aim is to provide youth teams additional playing opportunities, to ensure they’re building their experience and are ready for international duties.
