Introduction

UC Brumbies Academy (UCBA) was formed to link Rugby Specific Research in player, coach and high performance practitioner development through our Principal Partner the University of Canberra.

The program draws on more than 20 years of Intellectual Property in the practical application of High Performance methodology that has driven one of the most successful teams in Super Rugby history from the smallest population base.

 

Our vision: “To be the Premier Long & Short Term Development Pathway for Players, Coaches and Rugby Service Providers in World Rugby.”
