Welcome to WRU Carmarthenshire Player Development

Mini to Millennium is a development framework that provides a coordinated approach to the introduction and development of the game to players, coaches, match officials and volunteers.

Minis to Millennium is a long term player development model that aspires to offer the game of rugby union in a progressive way so that all those involved have the opportunity to experience the game and develop within the game.

There are four dimensions to Minis to Millennium;

The Player

Providing a skills curriculum for every player to follow.

The Coach

Offering education and support and training ideas to support the player at every stage in their development.

The Game

Providing a modified game from U7 to U19 that progressively introduces the full game.

Player Pathway

Detailing the pathway for those that aspire to play for Wales.

Minis to Millennium is a player-centred approach to developing the game in Wales for both male and females. Every player at every level of the game has the right to experience a game that is well organized and well coached which offers a stepped progression between age groups and between levels from the very grass roots of the game in clubs and schools to stepping out onto the Millennium Stadium to represent Wales.
