The Gold Coast Academy of Sport (GCAS) is proud to announce that we are working towards a Women’s Rugby 7’s program.
With the growth of female participation in Rugby 7’s and the success of our national team, the Academy is working towards a partnership with Rugby Union on the Gold Coast to deliver a development program for women interested in furthering their skill development and knowledge of the game. The program will be utilised in the hope women are encouraged to continue their involvement to higher levels of representative and regional rugby representation.
The focus of the program will be developed to provide athletes with targeted long-term skills, alongside the educational elements that enhance performance. Topics such as Nutrition, Strength and Conditioning, Sports Psychology and Body Maintenance and Rehabilitation all help the athletes to better understand how they can approach their development.
