Camden Junior Rugby Academy

We’re delighted to announce that the Camden Junior Rugby Academy will be running again in 2021.

 

Camden Junior Rugby Academy

 

 

What is it?

The Camden Rugby Academy is an off-season development programme run for those players who want to improve their rugby fitness and rugby skills.

It’s a five week programme that features Strength and Conditioning work as well as rugby skills sessions from an experienced and varied group of rugby coaches.  Additionally this year we are also able to include a session with the Classic Wallabies, Morgan Turunui, which was a highlight last year. 

The Strength and Conditioning component of the programme will be run on Monday nights (6:30pm-7:30pm), by Shorrocks Human Movement & Rehabilitation Services, in a series of sessions specifically designed for Camden Rugby by Exercise Physiologist & Sports Scientist, Dave Shorrocks.  The programme will feature skills, strength and aerobic fitness work and guidance for the players.  They will also be given homework!

The Rugby skills component of the Academy will be delivered on Friday afternoons from 6:30-7:30pm. 

 

Coaches

We have secured an excellent lineup of coaches to assist the players in developing their position specific and rugby generic skill sets.  The coaches we have selected feature individuals who have experience at Wallaby, Current Wallaroo’s GPS School, Shute Shield, Waratahs, and Illawarra Junior Representative levels.

 

Who’s it for?

It’s ideal for those Illawarra Representatives or if players are aspiring to representation. We urge all current Camden players in these grades to attend.

 

Age Groups

U10’s - U13’s

U14’s - U18’s

 

When does it start?

The Academy commences on Monday the 1st of November and will run on Mondays and Fridays for 5 weeks, concluding on the 3rd of December.  As highlighted above, Monday nights will be Strength and Conditioning and the Friday nights will be rugby skills related.

 

Where is it?

We will be running the Academy at the Camden Rugby Grounds, at Wire Lane, in Camden.

 

How much does it cost?

The cost for the Academy is $100 payable up front. All players who attend the Academy will receive $40 off their 2022 Camden season registration fee.
