Academy Team Info


Academy pre season training will start promptly at 7pm on Thursday 9th July at Havant.

These sessions will run once a week during July on a Thursday, each session consists of one hour of fitness and conditioning together with a game of touch rugby as the aim is to get fit to train.

In August there will be training twice a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays, starting at 7 pm when we will be developing further the work carried out and introducing more rugby related activity. A rest period of one week will be incorporated into the training programme.

The objectives for the sessions are for players to work together as a team, ‘Every one matters whatever their part’; understand and develop fitness; understand and develop speed; work on agility and patterns of movement, how we balance/improving balance and co-ordination; moving hands and feet in different directions. There will be a focus on how all these elements relate to rugby.

The work carried out in pre season training will contribute greatly to performance throughout the new seasonCambridge Garage
Havant RFC Academy provides rugby for players in the U17- U18 age range and competes in two county leagues which provides plenty of opportunities for all members of the squad to play rugby.

In 2014/2015, the Academy were the first Hampshire team to reach a final in the National Colts U18 Competition and were Hampshire champions for the third consecutive season. Players from within the Academy have enjoyed success in terms of representative honours at county, divisional and also international level.

Our aim is to allow each player to reach their full potential in a supportive and challenging environment with a focus on enjoyment and player development.  Players are encouraged to progress to senior rugby within the club and many former Academy players are representing the 1st XV in National League fixtures.

The Academy, sponsored by Cambridge Volvo has an experienced and well qualified coaching team.
