The role of the Rugby Academy is to identify and develop talented young athletes from age 16 to 19 and engage them in a high performance development programme. Players can become part of the academy through a variety of routes - the only essential criteria is that they are students of the Chichester College Group.
The academy is underpinned by the outstanding education available at Chichester College, thus providing the necessary structure for each player to reach their full potential. We provide our young players with an environment in which they can grow, express themselves both personally and professionally, and achieve their dream of becoming professional rugby players.
How can I join?
Any Chichester College student can be part of the Rugby Academy. Our excellent coaching team deliver sessions to cater for all abilities, from complete beginners to seasoned elite players. We are aiming to have a first team and development squad for both male and female students.
Trials will be taking place on Wednesday 29 August for the 2018/19 squad.
