Junior Academy

Junior Academy 2015

The West Harbour Rugby Junior Academy caters for elite rugby players turning 16 and 17 in 2015. It provides them the opportunity to:-

  • Develop core rugby skills.
  • Improve position specific skills.
  • Increase understanding and tactical knowledge of the game.
  • Participate in advanced coaching/training programs throughout the year.
  • Enhance physical attributes by having access to appropriate weights/fitness, testing and nutritional programs.
  • Develop an ability to critically analyse your own performance.
  • Be involved in a rugby career path which sees players progress through our Senior Academy Program, West Harbour Colts, Grade and Representative Rugby.

The West Harbour Junior Academy Program for 2015 allows all selected players to participate in an off season program, maintain group contact throughout the year whilst meeting their individual School and Junior Rugby commitments. To this end, participants will be given the opportunity to take part in strength and conditioning programs during the summer months (late November through to mid February) followed by organised camps & training days at various times throughout the year. The attached spread sheet shows the Junior Academy Program and dates. Additional sessions during the 2015 season will be added in consultation with players regarding their school and junior rugby commitments.

The 2015 Program culminates in an 11 day Junior Academy Tour to Fiji departing late November 2015. We have chosen to tour at this time to give players doing their HSC in 2015 to complete their academic endeavours This tour will be funded through Sponsorship and Fund Raising as well as a portion from individual contributions.

Our Junior Academy Coaches Alisi Leao & Steve Sale will oversee the operation of the Academy Program in 2015.

The program will be structured to take into account Junior and School Rugby calendar as well as academic commitments. Our Junior Academy is an adjunct to Junior/School training and it is our aim to ensure that involvement in the Academy does not conflict with these commitments.

It is expected that players who participate in the Junior Academy Program will join our Rugby Pathway and progress into our Colts and Grade Rugby programs once School and Junior commitments have finished.
