The NEGS Rugby Program is designed to develop female rugby students 12 to 18 years of age, in a school environment.
The NEGS Rugby Program is not a participation program and is aimed at producing top level athletes as they move forward in their Rugby skill development. The program will run for the 4 school terms each year.
Players will participate in twice weekly on field training sessions delivered by NEGS Rugby Coaches, and participate in weekly strength and conditioning sessions. Established programs with nutritionists and sports psychologists will also assist athletes throughout the program.
Coaching staff will also provide athlete skill identification and Individual Player Plans (IPP) for all students to identify areas for improvement during the program.
Players will also benefit from access to coaching with the UNE Cubs/Lions, and from coaching clinics with Australian Pearls/UNE Lions player and NEGS Rugby Program Ambassador, Rhiannon Byers.
The program is administered and delivered by qualified NEGS Rugby Coaches.
