Overview

The Rabbitohs Junior Touch Academy is an initiative to give access to all current and future representative touch footballers, aged between 14 and and 18 – male and female – the chance to develop their skills in fun and friendly environment. The program is particularly targeted to those players who currently represent Rabbitohs Touch, or may do so in the future.

The program will be led by some of our club’s most experienced coaches. All coaches are qualified Touch Football Australia coaches, and will deliver a program that has been specifically tailored to improving the skill sets of our players within a framework that aims to bring out the best in all of our athletes.

Who can participate?

The Academy is open to all players, however, we are specifically targeting those players who wish to further their touch football with the UNSW – South Sydney Rabbitohs in the future.

We are currently taking expressions of interest from players aged 14 – 18, both male and female.

What does the program look like?

Academy athletes will train every Monday, from 6pm to 7pm, with one of our representative coaches. Athletes will then play in the Senior Social Competition, alongside current representative players, in either the mens or womens division.

By playing alongside our senior representative players, Academy athletes will be able to incorporate the skills learned during training sessions, into game situations alongside players who will further help the kids develop.

When does the program run?

The program will begin on Monday 16th March 2020, and conclude at the end of June 2020 (dates may be flexible, depending on Social Competition finals and holidays).

Training will be at 6pm, with games following at 7pm. Games finish at 7:45pm.

What is the cost?

The program costs $100 per player. Included in this cost are:

  • Academy coaching for 10-12 weeks
  • Training shirt (same as Junior State Cup 2020. If you already have this, you can take $30 off the above price)
  • Entry into the Monday Senior Social Competition
