What is the DPP?

The Developing Player Programme is a national programme managed by the RFU and delivered locally in partnership with the RFU, Regional Academy and Constituent Bodies.

The DPP is player centred, development driven and competition supported with the wants and needs of young players at its core. Putting player enjoyment and rugby's core values first and foremost, the ambition is to ensure young people enjoy the game for longer and into their adult years. The DPP will help players find the right pathway to follow in the game, whether that is into professional rugby or long-term participation at a level appropriate to them. 

The Exeter Chiefs DPP is the first stage on the academy pathway, it is a development led environment and allows basic principles to be introduced to the players.
