We are delighted to announce the launch of a brand-new initiative The Newark Rugby Academy!

If you are age 16-18, male or female, and have a love of Rugby and a desire to follow a career in Sport, this is an opportunity like no other!

Learn from top RFU accredited coaches, receive a free match and training kit and play regular matches with regional grass roots clubs and other sixth form teams.

The qualification gives a broad insight into the diversity of disciplines and careers available in sport and offers you a broad spectrum of potential exit routes including university, scholarships, professional and semi-professional sports contracts, employment and apprenticeships.

The programme will focus on –

• Skill based training
• Strength & Conditioning
• Analysis
• Nutrition workshops
• Wellbeing workshops
• Individual player profiling and feedback
• Anatomy and Physiology
• Sports Leadership
• Applied Fitness Testing
• Coaching for Performance

“I want to wish Newark Rugby Club the best of luck with this new initiative. Rugby has the power to inspire but more importantly to provide vital life skills to prepare young people for the next step.”
Lewis Moody MBE

I’m delighted the club is starting its own rugby academy to give new opportunities to young people in the town and surrounding area. As a former player at the club, I remember very affectionately my time at the club and how it helped launch my professional rugby career. I look forward to supporting the initiative and following its progress.
Dusty Hare MBE
