Sorry, nothing is scheduled

For players aged 16-18 years old, the Advanced programme provides players an insight to the levels expected in a professional rugby environment.

The Advanced Players Course covers the following modules:

  • Advanced Strength and Conditioning Skills
  • Advanced Nutrition
  • Video review and the Game-Analysis process
  • Conducting self-review
  • Rugby intelligence & tactical awareness
  • Game plan comprehension
  • Position-Specific analysis & performance review
  • Advanced Position-Specific skills, roles and responsibilities
  • Self-management & leadership
  • Mind management & mental skills
  • Recovery protocols

Each participant is allocated a Position-Specific specialist – often a current or former international coach or player – that will teach the player 1:1 and introduce them to the advanced skills required in their position.

Course and Position-Specific Assessments are provided by the Course Facilitator and Position-Specific Coach respectively. This provides participants with a clear understanding of their strengths and work-ons – and where their future in the game lies. This ultimately creates a development plan and informs the player’s training in years to come.
