Student Life


Panther Rugby Academy

Rugby is a game that has a place for students of all shapes and sizes where success is only achieved through collective team effort. With this basic principal of team spirit at its core, the Panther Rugby Academy program is designed to develop the basic fundamental rugby skills of catching, passing, tackling and running. In addition, students will be coached on basic set-piece play with an emphasis on sevens rugby. Regarding opportunities for competition, we will look to arrange seven-a-side games against other schools/clubs to enable students to test their newly acquired skills. The U19 group will focus on both seven-a-side and ten-a-side competitions.
