It is rare these days that players are able to spend quality time improving their individual skills as most training sessions are team based drills and games.
At Apex Rugby Academy, we believe for our players to fully express themselves and develop, we must provide the best coaches possible to guide the players on their individual journeys.
Therefore, we have recruited some of the country's leading coaches & players to deliver clinics for players who are serious about taking the performance to the next level.
Players will have the unique opportunity to learn the latest rugby techniques, skills and trends from the modern game whilst spending valuable time developing their individual skill set relevant to their preferred playing position.
Our professional players skills clinics are separate to the SRU and independently run.
