Our rugby academy reflects our dedication to sports in a relaxed but professional environment, and has qualified coaches who design programs that are suitable for all ages and levels.
The rugby programme is devised based on a fast, fun-filled centric approach that covers all aspects of the game. The week is structured around two daily themes such as attacking, tactical appreciation and game understanding, contact skills and decision making in defence, evasion and speed, agility and balance. As well as this, there will be specific skill drills, covering core areas such as kicking, passing, tackle technique and handling. The focus will be on development through enjoyment and the programme will be tailored for all abilities, from those who look to come along for the love of the sport and exercise, to those who are looking for more elite, detailed coaching.
We are currently awaiting the Academy Rates, these will be released shortly.
