Dorchester celebrate RFU honour
DORCHESTER Rugby Club has celebrated achieving the RFU’s Whole Club Accreditation status.
The RFU, in conjunction with Sport England, introduced the Club Accreditation scheme to help all rugby clubs in England become stronger, more effective, more efficient and more enjoyable places to play rugby.
The scheme is based upon six key drivers which the RFU have identified as crucial to a strong club. These are retaining and developing players, recruiting new players, recruiting and retaining high quality coaches, volunteers and referees, effective and efficient facilities, effective and efficient management and governance and integration with the local community.
Dorchester Rugby Club has been working with Chris Burton (rugby development officer for Dorset) to move the club forward in a number of areas to continue its development.
Club chairman Peter Grassby said “This is a tremendous achievement for the club and recognises not only the hard of work of our volunteers but also the years of work that previous officers and committees of the club have put in, without which the club would not be in the strong position that it finds itself in.”
