Do you want to pursue a professional rugby career? Are you passionate about the game and your own personal development? The Bay of Plenty Rugby Union and Toi Ohomai Institute of Technology have partnered together to create the Cert4Rugby Programme delivered in three locations; Rotorua, Whakatane and Tauranga.

The Cert4Rugby Programme is a one-year programme aimed at young athletes. You will learn how to be prepared for a high performance environment. This includes:

  • Leadership
  • Rugby development (technical and tactical)
  • Strength and conditioning education (including recovery)
  • Understanding coaching process
  • Anatomy and physiology
  • Nutrition
  • Professional practice

On successful completion of this programme you will be awarded with the Level 4 Certificate in Exercise, and Certificate in Freestyle Group Exercise qualifications from Toi Ohomai.

The Cert4Rugby programme is being delivered in three locations to enable athletes to remain close to home, and support rugby in their communities. The Bay of Plenty Rugby Union is committed to growing community rugby, so selection preference will be given to athletes who share this commitment.
