Why We Do It
The SaberCats seek to train the next generation of rugby players through intensive player development and growth. To accomplish this, our academy focuses on high-performance expectations and community.
The intent of our High-Performance Academy is to create a clear development pathway from junior rugby to the professional world.
The pathway is divided by age group:
U19 Varsity (High school)
U17 Junior Varsity (High school)
U15 (High School)
What We Do
Players are coached by current SaberCats players and coaches with decades of experience from around the world. The goal is to pass on the knowledge and expertise we’ve accumulated to give players the opportunity to continue their development.
Areas of focus for the High-Performance Academy include:
- Catch – Pass – Kick
- Track – Tackle
- Breakdown skills
- Rugby intelligence
- Strength and Conditioning
- Position Specific
