The U13 Waterfall competition replaces previous league competitions (RFU AGR) and will be played over 3 Phases during the season.
- Each Phase will consist of 2-3 games played in Pools of 3-4 teams.
- At the end of each Phase teams will progress in to the next Phase.
- Team placement in Pools for Phase 2 & 3 will be based on preceding Pool game results.
- A new fixture draw is made ahead of each Phase.
2016-17 teams have been placed in Pools taking in to account their performance in the 2015-16 Sussex Mini Festivals. If a club enters multiple teams they cannot play in the same Pool (10 ‘named players’ will be ineligible to represent the lower placed team).
Games Each game will be 25 minutes each way, with no extra time.
Teams will play 13 aside (max squad 18 players) to the New Rules of Play.
- Max pitch 90m x 60m
- 6 player scrum - strike and push
- Scrum half - run or pass
- Kicking = flyhack only
Results should be sent to the organiser by both teams within 24 hours of each game by email (or text msg).
Match Cards are not required.
Fixture Dates have been set by the RFU in the Youth Structured Season.
KO time is set at 11:00 by default - this can be varied by advance agreement (72hrs) with opposition contact and the competition organiser.
Referees are to be appointed by the Home club - should be a qualified referee / not a coach of that team.
