The squad comprising 21 players and 4 adults leaders will tour Devon during 9th to 12th April. This involves playing 2 matches against local teams, attending a coaching clinic run by the premiership club Exeter Chiefs along with young players from other clubs. They will watch the Exeter match against Northampton, participating in an adventure training activity and a further variety of tasks and team building events, Which are being arranged by the coaching and management team.

Funding for the tour has been obtained by staff  and parents and the young players by doing bag packing at local supermarkets, cake sales, raffles, sponsored leg waxing and bike rides with Jersey sponsors by Couger automation. Benefits of this tour is teamwork respect and discipline and sportsmanship. This will help develop our future citizens to accept responsibility
