2019/20 Season

London Irish DPP Trials


Dear Teachers, Coaches, Parents and Players


Please see the information below regarding the Trials for the London Irish U14 and U15 DPP programme for the 2019/20 season. 


The trials are for the London Irish Developing Player Programme (DPP), known as the London Irish Bronze Academy. The programme is intended to compliment a player’s current rugby provision, be that through club or school, and give access to high quality core skill development sessions run by London Irish Academy coaches. Following the guidelines of the Age Grade Review, the Academy-delivered DPP is the only selective system beyond club and school at Under 13, 14 and 15 level.
