Afan Nedd skills development sessions

The Ospreys are running a series of skills development sessions for year three and year four pupils in the Neath Port Talbot area in conjunction with the Afan Nedd District set-up.


The sessions are open to all those attending a secondary school in the county or who play for a club in the Afan Nedd District, including the Swansea Valley area.

The purpose of the development sessions are to increase a player’s competency levels in their passing, catching, kicking, tackling, contact and evasion skills, through the use of conditioned games, and to form the first stage in the talent ID process for Aberavon, Neath and Swansea Valley District U14's Squads for the coming season.

The first session took place last Friday, with two more scheduled throughout August.

Venue – Cwrt Herbert Playing Fields, Neath

Friday 12th August, 10AM – 11:30AM  = Year 7   (Under 13′s) and 11:30AM – 1PM = Year 8 (Under 14′s)

Friday 19th August, 10AM – 11:30AM  = Year 7   (Under 13′s) and 11:30AM – 1PM = Year 8 (Under 14′s)
