U13 Wasps DPP Nominations

Date: 15 Jan 2019

The online process for nominating under 13 players for Wasps' Developing Player Programme (DPP) is now open.

The Wasps Developing Player Programme is looking for nominations at U13 (Year 8) age group. The DPP is aimed at providing high quality player development experiences, encouraging lifelong participation in the game and enabling those with potential to be clearly identified and supported.

The DPP is not a playing programme, it is purely training and development opportunities.

Nominations for DPP trials will close on the morning of Monday 4th February 2019.

All nominations should follow the guidelines below:

  • One set of nominations per club or school
  • Maximum of 3 nominations per club or school
  • Nominations based on W.A.S.P.

Warrior – Someone who battles for their desired outcome

Application – Mastery of elements requiring no talent

Skills – Demonstrates a high level of ability across our core skills

Physical Potential – Someone who has the potential to excel in terms of relative; height, strength, speed or power.

  • Nominated players must meet the eligibility requirements: A) live  B) go to school  C) play for a club in our region which is made from Buckinghamshire, Coventry & North Warwickshire and Oxfordshire (Cherwell, Oxford City & South Oxfordshire districts only)
  • Nominators – please be harsh and realistic with nominations, this is not an opportunity for every player. Larger trials create harder environments for staff and creates more room for error. It also creates more disappointed players when selections are made.
