To connect and collaborate with key establishments to develop an inclusive and diverse pathway.

More information about the vision aims and objectives of the hub programme can be found here (insert english and welsh versions)

To understand the impact of the hub programme please consult the documents and graphics attached.


Since 2014, the WRU has provided match-funding to support a network of Hub Officers working in  schools and institutions of further and higher education, to develop the game of rugby. The primary  purpose of the programme has been to engage young people through their educational settings, in  rugby activity with a view to encouraging them to pursue their interest in the game in one of over 180  community rugby clubs which are linked with the hubs.

Following an independent review, the WRU restated its vision, aims and objectives for the  Hub Programme for the 3 years, aligned to the WRU Participation Strategy from 2018 - 2021. In 2020/21 the WRU held an internal review of the programme to ensure it continued to deliver against its ambitions and our New Community Game Strategy. The full review can be downloaded  HERE.
