Elite Players Course

Our Elite Players Course has been designed to immerse participants in a professional rugby environment – to demonstrate what is required to take their ability to the next level. Similar to the High Performance Players' Course, this course is designed for players aged 18+ years old that have the potential to play professional rugby.

The Elite Players Course covers the following aspects:

  • Fitness assessments
    • Aerobic and flexibility
    • Speed and strength
  • One-on-one evaluations with a nutritionist, sports psychologist and physiotherapist
  • Intensive one-on-one, position-specific analysis with an elite coach/player
  • Video and match analysis
  • Media and presentation skills
  • Career development
  • Strength and conditioning programme development
  • Injury prevention and recovery regimes

The Elite Players Course exposes players to what is required of a professional rugby player, and ensures each player understands what is required to reach their true potential.

All participants receive 1:1 position-specific tuition from a former professional, which focuses on developing the core technical skills required for their position.

Course fees include all accommodation, food and course material for the duration of the course.

Costs of travelling to the course facility are not included.
