Press release issued 13th March.....

Applications are been sought for a new summer-based Yorkshire Regional Under 17-18 League.

The league – run in partnership between the RFL, Yorkshire Junior League and Hull & District Youth League – is scheduled to run from May to October this year and is looking to build on the success of the recently launched Under-16s competition which attracted 38 entrants.

A shortened season is planned for sides at the under-17 and under-18 age groups with the aim being to give the players a chance to gain the benefits of playing during the summer months.

The Yorkshire Junior League has a proven track record of running a well organised competition and they will be administering the new venture, whilst representatives from the Hull & District Youth League will lend their support.

The new competition will allow clubs to align the youth sides to the current men’s and juniors teams playing seasons and also enable current players at the under-17 and under-18 age groups to make the transition to summer.

Opportunities for the best Yorkshire teams to meet their North West rivals in an end of season play off are also been explored.

Application forms can be downloaded from http://www.yorkshirejuniorsarl.co.uk/documents and once completed should be returned to Charlie Bray via e-mail at charles.bray1@ntlworld.com before the Monday April 15 deadline.


For more information contact Charlie on 07816 317856 or David Raybould on 07764 470828.

Is this your answer Tim, I've also a feeling that many of the U16's & U17's games will be played mid-week because they will be used again to prop up the summer open-aged teams.

Carlsberg don't do Soldiers, but if they did, they would probably be Brits.

More likely this is an interim season allowing clubs to fulfil their winter commitments before switching full time next year

Give over, It's in a direct conflict with BARLA offering a traditional season for the clubs who have found summer not to be the promised land, If you listen to what people who are involved with the junior and youth game on here are saying, you will see they seem to be very worried by the dwindling numbers of players and teams since the switch to summer, their other worries also include; elite team building within the amateur game (Is there a connections with the people championing summer rugby and elite team building ?), Professional academies taking players during the amateur season resulting in teams being left short on match days, players being taken to prop up open age first teams and this is all before we get on with any other distractions.

I'd like to know who they are discussing that with in the NWC, especially after the turmoil at last nights League meeting and the fact that there is no U17's in NWC anymore.

The RFL seem hell bent on dividing every area of the Amateur game to the point where there is so much conflict it falls apart altogther, they have certainly done a great job of disrupting the NWC at U16's - U18's which is currently a major cause for concern for many of the clubs.

"On here" is an increasingly small number of people. Bored of it.

At what level of the game are you involved? Or are you saying that people like Taxiegg are talking bollo cks, If you check out the leagues this year, last year and the year before you will get some indication on how many teams across aged grouped rugby have gone.

I set up an OA team 4 years ago, started U9s and U11s last year, a cubs group, ran U13s and U15s training groups last year and this year am TRYING to start a U16s in a league, all in a town that doesnt play RL.

what would make starting a U16s easier would be for there to be a May to October option available. the post at the top is about there being an opportunity for teams, if they want, to play May to October yet the usual few have condemned it as some sort of conspiracy against traditional season rugby. why can it not simply be recognised that to get more people playing we need to offer as many opportunities as we can as a sport for people to play???

So I'll say it, well done to the RFL, Yorkshire Junior League and Hull & District Youth League for offering such an opportunity; it's to be commended.

Well done you.

Are all these teams still playing? Only asking because I knew a Policeman who ran about Doncaster setting up teams and then shooting off before roots could be put down.

Offering an opportunity that suits the RFL administrators is easily done, the hard part is getting players to play in that window of opportunity, this was always a problem in the RLC, on many occasions guys would claim to have a team before the season started, on paper it all looked rosey, in reality the team was always a none starter or at best played a handful of games (I'd like to see the list of none starters and fallen)

Because of the dwindling numbers in this window of opportunity SUPLIED by the RFL, BARLA are offering (In line with the RFL 4 season policy, which the RFL clearly don't endorse) an opportunity to play in a traditional season.

I'd also give BARLA a big thumbs up as well.
