Rugby Academy

 Otahuhu College Rugby Academy

 Work hard / Dream big

 Aspire – Challenge – Excel

The Otahuhu College Rugby Academy was established in 2016 and is only in its second year of operation. After a successful 1st year where our U15 rugby Academy (Year 10) finished in the semi-finals of their respective grade, 2017 will see the introduction of the U14 Rugby Academy (Year 9). Players are selected by a group of experienced rugby coaches and must seek parent consent to be part of the Academy.

The Academy is set up to mentor students through possible pathways in rugby as a player, coach, referee or manager. They will work to develop good work habits not only on the rugby field but also in the classroom where students will be able to cope not only with the demands of being in a high performance Academy but also acquire valuable social and life skills. It also looks at future pathways outside of the rugby arena.
