The Gold Coast Academy of Sport (GCAS), is pleased to offer a rugby league program to the young boys and girls on the Gold Coast. It is designed to provide talent-identified players, coaches and support staff with a clearly defined pathway to progress to Gold Coast Junior Representatives teams. It is our premise to help young players improve their skill level and learn more about how they can improve their overall game.
Selected academy athletes will receive enhanced skill and physical development coaching. They will also take part in selected core education and personal development seminars as part of a ‘whole’ player development philosophy.
The program will start with an orientation meeting followed by trainings once a each week.
The annual program runs from July through to September with regular squad training sessions focused on individual skill development. In addition to on-field training sessions and competition opportunities, athletes receive access to educational seminars to further their personal development off the playing field.
