  • Oaklands Wolves Rugby Open Day

    Dates: 18 – 18 Feb, 2019

    Join us for one of our open events to discover how to join the Oaklands Wolves Rugby Academy in September 2019.

    Since 2006, in partnership with Saracens Rugby Club, Oaklands College have provided fantastic opportunity for ambitious young rugby players to continue their education in an excellent institution as well as work intensively on developing their skills in sport.

    Joining Wolves Academy at Oaklands College gives students aged 16 to 19 a way to grow with a view to progressing to the professional game, club rugby in the national or local leagues, or university and beyond.

    The Taster day will begin at 10.00, and finish at approximately 13.30 and will include:

    • A Taster Skills Session
    • A Taster Video analysis Session
    • A Taster Gym Session
    • A presentation for parents
    • A Trial Training Session*

    The taster day is broken into two parts, the first part is to show you what you might expect from a typical day at the college, with skills, gym and video analysis sessions taking place for prospective applicants to participate in.

    Parents will have the opportunity to watch the skills session and then there will be a short presentation for the parents whilst the prospective students continue with their taster sessions.

    The second part of the day will involve a short trial to assess playing ability of those in attendance. We are not expecting to see 30-40 international standard rugby players at each event, but we do expect a certain level of competence within the core skills; pass, catch, run, tackle, as well as a reasonable level of physical fitness and a drive to improve.

    Book your place

    Places at the event are limited so book early to avoid disappointment.
