Junior High Performance Training Squads announced

Junior High Performance Training Squads announced

The Under-15 and Under-18 High Performance Training Squads have been announced.

The groups have been chosen after the most extensive season that junior Touch in England has ever had. Not only did England enter teams into every category in the Junior Touch Championships, but the expansion of both age groups meant that the England Touch Association was able to organise a standalone Ryvita Touch Nationals event, too.

This selection is the first step towards next summer’s Junior Touch Championships, which are being held in Scotland in August.

Congratulations to all of those players who have been chosen!
