On Saturday 5th September 2009. Brixham Youth RFC was awarded the RFU's Mini and Youth Seal of Approval accreditation for the standard of its provision of rugby for young players.
The RFU introduced the Seal of Approval programme in association with Sport England and the Clubmark scheme in 2002 to recognise clubs in reaching standards required in the development of rugby for young people and to plan for the long term sustainability of the club.
Clubs are assessed by the RFU and must demonstrate evidence of good practice in areas such as club management, player development, child protection, sports equity and coaching, refereeing and volunteering.
The RFU's Community Rugby director Andrew Scoular said: "This accreditation will show all those with an interest in rugby and sports development that Brixham Youth RFC is providing its young people with a safe, well-organised and enjoyable environment in which to learn and play rugby."
