Host families sought for Warriors DISE scheme players

Warriors are looking for host families for the 2021/22 intake of Academy players who are part of the Diploma In Sporting Excellence  Programme.

Host families would usually house one or, in most cases, two players and are reimbursed either on a weekly or nightly basis for their assistance through a structured invoicing process.

All host families will be provided with education in nutrition and player conduct and lifestyle along with various other areas and introductions to players and their families would be completed well in advance of the player starting college.

The Worcester Warriors Academy and Stourport High School & Sixth Form College currently run a DISE Programme for players in our specified geographical area of North Midlands and Warwickshire.

Players, aged 16 to 18, from this large geographical area attend Stourport High School & Sixth Form College to complete their education in various A levels and Btec Courses, while the Warriors Academy delivers approximately 20 hours of rugby per week.

As our geographical area is so large we regularly ask players to relocate to Worcester during the week so that they are not spending large amounts of time on a daily basis travelling.

The players stay with their host families during the week and return home at the weekend. This is term-time only, the boys also go home during school holidays.

Essential Requirements

  • Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check
  • Comfortable environment with cooking, washing, living facilities etc.
  • Live in or around the Worcester area
  • Ability to build relationships with young people

Desired Requirements

  • Fan of Worcester Warriors
