Players’ Courses

For rugby players with ambition, access to genuine coaching expertise has never been more important.

Yet the development of promising young talent often suffers because they’ve just missed out on a representative team, or their coach isn’t pushing them to improve.

IRANZ Player Courses were developed to provide an independent, high-performance pathway for any ambitious young rugby player that wants to push themselves and ultimately achieve higher honours.

Rugby player course options

Our selection of player courses include:

For the first time in 2018, IRANZ will also offer our Junior Players Course 

Each programme is designed to cover crucial technical, tactical, mental and physical skills required to reach your potential as a player. With a strong focus on position-specific tuition, skill development, mental toughness, rugby intelligence and self-management, our Courses are designed to provide improved performance both on and off the field.

IRANZ Player Courses are ‘full-immersion’, meaning participants stay together on-site for the duration of the Course in a rugby camp-style environment.

Player Course facilitators and Staff Coaches are chosen from the world’s current and former rugby elite, providing participants the opportunity to learn directly from some of the greatest rugby minds in the game today.

Position-specific coaching

Each Course provides participants the opportunity to learn their position in-depth, 1:1 with a current or former international player or coach that specialises in that very position, offering an unparalleled opportunity for development. Course and Position-Specific Assessments are provided to each participant, meaning they have a deep understanding of their strengths and work-ons – which forms a post-course development plan that lays the foundation for growth long after the course is complete.

Players receive position-specific knowledge from former and current international players in a 1:1 environment, providing an unparalleled rugby tuition.
