Under 12 and 13 "trawl" [posted 06/12/13]
has circulated a letter about an opportunity that the Regional Development Centre (West) is able to offer to under 12 and under 13 players in west district. In his email, Tim notes, " am aware that timings are quite tight and that we are close to the holiday period. However, due to hall availability and because I only received confirmation of the funding this week, the date for the 'trawl' is really the only date that it is possible to run the event. I think this is an exciting opportunity and I hope that there is some interest in the event. The aim is to complement the existing Area Development Group programme. As always, if clubs have any queries please do not hesitate to get in contact." A letter detailing more about this opportunity is online.
