RCCB - YOUTH TEAM OBJECTIVES 2022-2023
The Youth Team will aim to re-establish full relationships/contact with schools and young people now most Covid 19 restrictions have been removed. As many youth activities as possible will be maintained throughout the year, taking account of possible future restrictions if and when they occur; the pressure on schools/staff, and the need to safeguard the health of our team members. Discussions will take place with schools after the June 2022 summer half term to confirm the programme/dates.
The Youth team will endeavour to involve as many young people and club members as possible in Youth activities.
We await confirmation of the 22/23 competitions timetable from RIBI/District although it is unlikely to be available before we go to press. However, some dates have been ‘forecast’ based on previous years. Running competitions will be subject to schools giving their permission
Club round at Whitchurch High School. To be completed by December 10th, 2022. Date tbc.
Rotary GB&I/District previously set a timetable requiring club rounds to be completed by December 10th, 2022. We need to establish whether schools can accommodate this earlier timetable, which previously had proved difficult for them. Dates tbc.
