Nottingham Rugby Academy

Nottingham Rugby are looking to drive this year’s intake of male and female players into the Nottingham Rugby Academy…

Nottingham Rugby General Manager, Paul Taylor, has asked us to share the following message:

We are delighted to announce the dates for our new intake of players to the Nottingham Rugby Academy. We hope that we will be able to support those players that are not currently in an Academy or DPP to reach their full potential and support NLD with their player pathway. We are NOT looking to take players away from their clubs and we aren’t setting up a squad to play games. We are simply looking to be a stepping stone for those players that are aspiring to play at the highest level they can.

We will be running sessions on the following dates:

U18 & U20 Boys

  • Thursday 21st December 2023 (rescheduled from 13 December due to weather)
  • Tuesday 23rd January  2024
  • Wednesday 28th February 2024

U17-U20 Girls

  • Monday 18th December 2023
  • Wednesday 31st January 2024
  • Monday 11th March 2024

All sessions will start at 7pm with changing rooms open from 6.30pm. Our aim is to provide high quality coaching from Nottingham Rugby players that will target positional skills to improve individual technique and we will also deliver talks on S&C, Nutrition and Recovery. The Academy will be coordinated by current Nottingham Rugby player and Academy Graduate Jack Dickinson.

Each club is able to nominate 6 players to attend and they can register here   We want to support players regardless of position so there are no stipulations as to who clubs put forward.

Kind regards,


Paul Taylor
