The Junior Brolga Academy is a training program designed collectively by Represetative level coaches with decades of experience. The program moves away from a team focus and works with improving indivuals core Rugby skills.

The Program runs over two select periods, the Pre-season and the Post-season Academies. The Pre-season program has more of a focus on getting its participants ‘contact ready’ and introduces a number of Injury prevention aspects as well as developing a physical fitness. The Post-season program focuses more on skill acquisition and development.

Both programs focus on the basics relevant to each age group for both Boys and Girls.

  • Catching and Passing
  • Tracking and Tackle
  • Tackle Contest and Groundwork
  • Position Specific Skills

The program is designed to increase the standard of Junior Rugby in the Townsville & District at a grassroots level – giving all players of all experiences the opportunity to better their Rugby skills in a safe and enjoyable environment with the fantastic local coaches.

The Junior Brolga Academy Progam will look to incorporate the following aspects over the next 2 years to see the program become more professional exposing players to Rep level coaching, analysis and goal setting.

  • Training and game video analysis
  • Strength, Conditioning & Nutrition
  • Physical Testing
  • Position Specfic Coaching and Mentoring
