Women's Rugby Trials

Trials for the women's rugby elite programme (AASE) begin next week with new head coach, Peter Cook.

The trial takes place on Wednesday 18th of December and those who are interested will need to contact Peter directly on his email at peter.cook@hartpury.ac.uk for further information.

IMPORTANT: In order to trial you must have plaed a minimum of county level.

Run alongside the UK’s most successful college women’s rugby programme, Hartpury’s AASE programme develops and supports young, female rugby players who have the ability, drive and desire to play at the very highest level.

With more than 15 U20 England internationals and two full England internationals, our programme has proven to be the ideal place for aspiring women’s rugby players to develop their skills. The scheme will prepare you, as an elite athlete, for all aspects of life at the top of their sport.

By doing the Advanced Apprenticeship in sporting excellence you will give yourself the best chance to succeed. Apprentices will combine their rugby training with units aimed at preparing them for all aspects of their future career. Those selected for the course will have aspirations to compete internationally and will be guided throughout to make sure this dream can be achieved.

Apprentices will also have access to a range of specialist, professional services including physiotherapy, strength & conditioning and sports psychology.
