The Gold Coast Academy of Sport (GCAS) is pleased to be able to provide a long-term talent development program for players from the age of U/14. Players, coaches and administrators receive opportunities to be involved in a program focused on developing their skills and understanding of the sport in the hope they are encouraged to continue their involvement to higher levels of representative rugby local and regional representation.
The program has been 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.
The annual program is held from February to March/April with regular squad training sessions focused on individual skill development.
