We are all looking forward to another busy and productive year at Ilkley RUFC for the 2017/18 season. The RFU supports clubs that are always trying to strengthen and develop links with the wider community, Ilkley RUFC does both. The RFU is entering into another 4 year planning cycle, and I am sure that
with many ideas and funding programmes from the RFU, Ilkley will be at the forefront. This season we are RFU will be improving our “Rugby Aware” programme. This is targeted at putting player welfare at the heart of the game, by supporting clubs to provide a safe playing environment and develop high quality coaching. I am encouraged and welcome the clubs commitment to the programme, as we look forward to the successes both on and off the pitch.
