The Advanced Players Course is designed to provide young players with the tools to fast-track their development as they transition to senior rugby.
Typically for male players aged 16-18 years old, this course is perfect for promising young players at the 1st XV level with aspirations to reach higher honours.
The Advanced Players Course covers the following aspects:
This course focuses on the fundamental skills required to become a high-performing athlete – preparing young players for rugby at an advanced level.
