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 High-Performance Rugby Pathway (HPRP) delivered in three locations; Rotorua, Whakatane and Tauranga.
The HPRP is a one-year programme aimed at young athletes. You will learn how to be prepared for a high performance environment. This includes:
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 HPRP 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.
Applicants will be required to attend an interview and an information sharing session where they will be informed of programme structure and expectations as well as progression options.
