The England Touch Association is delighted to invite your respective referees to come and help officiate at the inaugural England Nationals Tournament, in Lilleshall, to be held on the 21st and 22nd April 2012. Please can you distribute this out to all your referees.
This is a two day tournament that is being used as the selection trials for the England National Team to compete at the Euro’s in September in Italy. Each of the newly formed regions within England will bring their strongest mens and womens’ teams to compete against each other and to compete for a place in the Euro’s squad.
As the European Touch Championships are taking place in September, this will be an ideal preparation event for all referees, especially for referees looking to go to Treviso, with a very high standard of touch expected from the regional mens and womens teams. England Touch are looking to use this weekend as a high performance camp for referees.
This event is open to all referees (and referee coaches) whether they are looking to attend the European Touch Championships or not.
Referees will receive a contribution towards their accommodation and travel costs and where possible we will help out with local transport and travel options to and from the venue. Further information on the tournament will be made availabe in due course.
Please let me (firstname.lastname@example.org) know as soon as possible, if you would like to attend. If you have any questions or queries or want any further information, do not hesitate to get in contact.We are really looking forward to hearing from you and seeing you at the Nationals.
