The Myerscough College Rugby Academy is the accredited RFU Sharks Development Centre for the North West. This relationship enables Myerscough to offer students a unique opportunity to train as professional athletes and secure a dream job in professional Rugby Union. It also provides an unrivalled platform for students to demonstrate their talent to one of the leading clubs in AVIVA Premiership Rugby and the chance to break into the Sale Sharks youth or senior squads.
The Sale Sharks Residential camp is designed to enhance the current skills and knowledge of all young players attending and will follow the curriculum/syllabus for 2013/2014 for the Sharks Development Group. The 5 day intensive programme is aimed at developing good rugby players towards elite performers. It is therefore expected that players arrive on the course possessing good levels of fitness and skills.
With specialist coaching, designed by the Sharks Academy coaches, and delivered by our own Sharks Community Coaching team, rugby players gain an insight into life as a professional rugby player. All meals and accommodation are provided and there will be additional opportunities to benefit from rugby analysis, nutrition, and strength and conditioning sessions in the gym included.
In the past few years, numerous attendees on this residential camp that have impressed, have been selected to join our academy structure: Will Addison is one such player, and now Will is an established first team player at Sale Sharks! Myerscough have also produced many Sale Sharks Academy players, such as Mike Haley, Will Cliff, Nathan Fowles, Lee Imiolek and more.
