The selection process for Great Britain Tag Rugby is open to all Try Tag Rugby players across the country, as such, we are hosting a preliminary training session based in Leeds for players in the Northern Powerhouse to ensure you are best placed and well versed prior to attending the London Trials. Great Britain Tag Rugby is focusing on building and fielding the most competitive squads in time for the 2021 Tag World Cup in Ireland. Along the way, we will be hosting and no doubt visiting Ireland to compete in the 2019 and 2020 British & Irish Cups. Selection for the World Cup GB Team will be developed over the coming two years and is not restricted to the teams being selected for the B&I Cup 2019. It is for this reason that Great Britain & Ireland have decreased the age categories for the 2019 & 2020 B&I Cups so we can genuinely grow a significant pool of players in each category, creating depth and breadth across the development squads for 2021. Key dates for your diary: 11th May London Origin - This is a high level tournament, we are expecting to see our high level players register for selection.  Coaches & Scouts will be watching. Those trialling from the North of England are invited to register for North London. 2nd JuneGB Trials 1 - This will be the first round of trials, players to be considered for B&I 2019 and beyond will be expected to attend 1 of the 2 trials 8th JuneTagFest London - The biggest event Try Tag Rugby will ever have hosted, with unlimited capacity for team and individual entry.  Coaches & Scouts will expect to see you there. The current proposal is that players attending this preliminary training session will create teams to compete in the Top Tier, gaining a genuine experience at the top of the game and to showcase your skills to the GB Coaches. 23rd JuneGB Trials 2 - This will be the second round of trials, players to be considered for B&I 2019 and beyond will be expected to attend 1 of the 2 trials 26th JuneB&I 2019 Squads to be announced 7th September British & Irish Cup PLAYER ELIGIBILITY To be eligible to play for Great Britain you need to meet the following criteria: • Be British born or have residency of three consecutive years or more in Great Britain • OR hold a British passport • Be a fully registered Try Tag Rugby player (or equivalent registered player with another ITF member such as the Irish Tag Rugby Association) who has participated in at least one full league season during 2019 • Not played for another full ITF member nation within the last one year • Be available to travel to Ireland in 2021 • Great Britain representatives are ambassadors. Hence you must be an outstanding member of the Tag community who will uphold the ethos of Try Tag Rugby and represent Great Britain in a manner befitting to the UK Tag community. Any player who has received a suspension from Try Tag Rugby for any on field or off field incident since the beginning of 2018 is not eligible to play for Great Britain. GB DIVISIONS Categories have been selected but are not limited to those we are considering for the World Cup 2021. Age brackets have been adapted with a view to building depth in squads over the next 2 years and to enable players to play with each other over the coming years in preparation for 2021.  e.g. Women's Seniors in 2021 will remain as 27+.  For 2019, this will be 25+. 2020 will be 26+ and so on so that players by 2021 are of the correct age and will have played together for 2 years. - Mixed Open - Men’s Open - Women's Open - Mixed Seniors (Men 31+, Women 28+) - Men’s Seniors (28+) - Women's Seniors (25+) Register your attendance to Trials and get yourselves signed up to the relevant tournaments on the Try Tag Rugby Event Page - www.trytagrugby.eventbrite.com Any questions, please email [email protected] We look forward to sharing more information over the course of the year and please note, this is not a formal trials event, this is an opportunity to be assessed prior to London travel and to ensure the GB Coaches have detailed player information prior to arrival.

A one-stop shop for like-minded professionals who seek help and information. It is free to take part and is facilitated through a closed on-line group, safeguarding the conversations of the teaching staff.

Be part of the Great Britain Tag Rugby 2021 Vision. Try Tag Rugby is inviting all players with a vision of being part of the 2021 World Cup the opportunity to join us at Great Britain Trials. The objective of the Trials is two-fold: Be recognised, make sure the coaches are aware of your long-term vision, put yourself on the map and work with the GB Management Team to be best placed for consideration in 2021. The British & Irish Cup squads will be chosen from players who attend one of the trials. The British & Irish Cup will take place on Saturday 7th September 2019. Note, this selection does not exclude any player from the broader GB 2021 Player Development Pool. We are excited to share the vision of Great Britain Tag Rugby. Representing Great Britain is a huge honour and as we have proven, one that is capable of winning World Cup medals.  With such honour and reward, of course comes a huge amount of commitment, dedication and desire on the part of every player and the coaching teams. The vision is very clear.  Great Britain Tag Rugby is focusing on building and fielding the most competitive squads in time for the 2021 Tag World Cup in Ireland. Along the way, we will be hosting and no doubt visiting Ireland to compete in the 2019 and 2020 British & Irish Cups. Selection for the World Cup GB Team will be developed over the coming two years and is not restricted to the teams being selected for the B&I Cup 2019. It is for this reason that Great Britain & Ireland have decreased the age categories for the 2019 & 2020 B&I Cups so we can genuinely grow a significant pool of players in each category creating depth and breadth across the development squads for 2021. Try Tag Rugby will be appointing a Great Britain Coaching Team to build and deliver on this 2021 vision which will include their attendance at specific events as well as trials and visiting leagues across the country to ensure no talent is untapped. Key dates for your diary: 6th AprilSpring Tournament - If you were lucky enough to register in time, Coaches and Scouts will be watching 11th MayLondon Origin - This is  a high level tournament, we are expecting to see our high level players register for selection.  Coaches & Scouts will be watching 2nd JuneGB Trials 1 - This will be the first round of trials, players to be considered for B&I 2019 and beyond will be expected to attend 1 of the 2 trials 8th JuneTagFest London - The biggest event Try Tag Rugby will ever have hosted, with unlimited capacity for team and individual entry.  Coaches & Scouts will expect to see you there. 23rd JuneGB Trials 2 - This will be the second round of trials, players to be considered for B&I 2019 and beyond will be expected to attend 1 of the 2 trials 26th JuneB&I 2019 Squads to be announced 7th SeptemberBritish & Irish Cup PLAYER ELIGIBILITY To be eligible to play for Great Britain you need to meet the following criteria: • Be British born or have residency of three consecutive years or more in Great Britain • OR hold a British passport • Be a fully registered Try Tag Rugby player (or equivalent registered player with another ITF member such as the Irish Tag Rugby Association) who has participated in at least one full league season during 2019 • Not played for another full ITF member nation within the last one year • Be available to travel to Ireland in 2021 • Great Britain representatives are ambassadors. Hence you must be an outstanding member of the Tag community who will uphold the ethos of Try Tag Rugby and represent Great Britain in a manner befitting to the UK Tag community. Any player who has received a suspension from Try Tag Rugby for any on field or off field incident since the beginning of 2018 is not eligible to play for Great Britain. GB DIVISIONS Categories have been selected but are not limited to those we are considering for the World Cup 2021. Age brackets have been adapted with a view to building depth in squads over the next 2 years and to enable players to play with each other over the coming years in preparation for 2021.  e.g. Womens Seniors in 2021 will remain as 27+.  For 2019, this will be 25+. 2020 will be 26+ and so on so that players by 2021 are of the correct age and will have played together for 2 years. - Mixed Open - Men’s Open - Women's Open - Mixed Seniors (Men 31+, Women 28+) - Men’s Seniors (28+) - Women's Seniors (25+) Register your attendance to Trials and get yourselves signed up to the relevant tournaments on the Try Tag Rugby Event Page - www.trytagrugby.eventbrite.com Any questions, please email [email protected] We look forward to sharing more information over the course of the year including location - which will be within London.

Our last Full Moon Tea Ceremony was SOLD OUT and went amazingly well with 15 beautiful gracious women participating and sharing their deep stories Where: >>> Amazing space Globe House Yoga in London BridgeCost:   >>> £25 This month we will use the power of Ceremonial Tea together with the power of Vortex Healing, followed by the Medicine of Sharing. Women’s circles are a magical place for connection with ourselves, our sisters, our tribe. Something that most of us are missing and longing for in our hectic modern lives – deep sense of community, sisterhood, belonging and meaningful connection with likeminded women. Here we grow and heal together. Tea Ceremony deepens this connection and also our connection to Nature and Moon. Through the magical ritual of Tea Ceremony we are able to relax, go deeper into our bodies and connect to our own knowing and wisdom. Some of you know, some don't, but I have been doing Vortex Energy Healing for a few years now, and after the Tea Ceremony I will be doing a group healing for those areas that Full Moon will be highlighting.  WHAT TO EXPECT >>> Introductions (the moon, the tea, ourselves – what we intend to let go of in this cycle)>>> Opening Meditation (to get us in their bodies)>>> Silent Tea Ceremony (to connect to ourselves and everyone in the group)>>> Vortex Healing>>> Group Sharing {share your experiences, insights, longings)>>> Closing Meditation I will be brewing a special Tea for the Tea Ceremony on the night. Tea is such a powerful medicine plant, but it’s so human and gentle, and it cares. Tea from ancient and wise tea trees has the ability to connect us to our hearts, take us on a very gentle journey and heal us. The seating is done on the floor and we have plenty of cushions. Comfortable clothing is recommended. After tea we will share some healthy snacks. I am looking forward to sharing a bowl of tea with you all! IMPORTANT INFORMATION - DIRECTIONS Please allow sufficient time to get to the space and find it. LATECOMERS WILL NOT BE ADMITTED. Doors will be closed after 10 minutes from the start time. The reason for this is the complicated gate system of the space.  The Ceremony will take place at Globe House Yoga studio close to London Bridge station. The entrance is from Crucifix lane. Please don’t use the postcode as it directs you to the wrong gate. The entrance gate is on CRUCIFIX LANE Here is a google map link to where the gates are: https://www.google.com/maps/place/88+Whites+Grounds,+London+SE1+3JU/@51.5019445,-0.081121,19z/data=!4m2!3m1!1s0x4876034520b9fa7f:0x13f1ea35a5fee815?hl=en-GB&gl=uk As you walk on Saint Thomas Street from London Bridge station towards the studio, you will pass a bike shop on the corner at the corner of the Crucifix lane and Bermondsey street, continue to walk straight along Crucifix Lane and then after the whole building is finished you will see metal gates on the right (a little bit deeper than the building). Go towards them and press Yoga on the buzzer (Buzzer 8). I will open a door for you and as you enter the gate walk straight for a little bit while looking right :) You will see a door with YOGA above it and that’s the right place.
