The aim of The Performance Centre program is to:
- Provide an elite training environment and program for key identified players.
- Develop players with positive training, playing and performance habits (on and of the field).
- Establish a key step into the “NEW” Rams rugby player pathway.
- Accelerate the knowledge and skill acquisition of all players.
- Provide improved player development in the Victorian Club Rugby Competition.
- Establish a blueprint for future coaching, game management and player development.
The Rams Performance Centre is a sport based leadership program focused on preparing youth and young adults for rugby pathways, elite programs and on through to careers. This year long program will provide the necessary support through training and education sessions for the participants.
Training sessions and planned events throughout the year will provide opportunities for kids and young adults to be selected for the Performance Program Scholarships, which include support from educational institutions. The Rams Performance Centre has 20 performance program scholarships available for U16s, U18s and U20s players.
