Spotlight - Elite Rugby

The CLF Elite Rugby programme is an extension of the successful CLF Junior Elite Rugby Academy. The aim is to provide a top class, professional coaching and match programme to allow talented individuals to improve skills, techniques, fitness and game understanding.

As well as professional quality weekly coaching performed in-house, we have developed partnerships with external coaches and providers such as the RFU and Bristol Rugby Club.

We are developing this provision all of the time and currently are exploring partnerships with universities and with internationally located professional clubs.

We are also fully committed to supporting the students off the field, developing the players holistically by giving them the opportunities to work towards RFU Leadership and coaching awards through running festivals and working with the local community.

Our Elite Rugby programme boasts:
  • Quality professional coaching
  • Support from Bristol Rugby Club
  • An extensive and supported strength and conditioning programme with the assistance from Bristol Rugby
  • Fullly structured squad training
  • Competitive British Colleges League fixtures
  • Entry into the Natwest Cup
  • Full 7s programme
  • Gym membership (free/heavily subsidised)
  • Subsidised kit
  • Individual mentoring
  • National competition / tournament opportunities, including National Schools (Rosslyn Park) 7s
  • Opportunities to tour internationally
