High performance coaching and management for Rugby 7s.
At Elite Rugby we specialise in coaching and managing men's and women's Rugby 7s teams.
Our highly skilled and experienced team cover all aspects of Rugby preparation and performance including: skill development, strength and conditioning, athlete nutrition, injury management and team and tournament logistics.
In 2017 James recruited me to play at the Darwin Hottest Sevens for the NT Mozzies. James, Tim, Cassidy, Chris and Nathan were all involved with the team for this tournament.
The coaching and leadership from Tim and Cassidy allowed me to seamlessly fit into a team of boys I’d never met two days before the tournament. We progressed from the pools only to lose in the quarter finals to a Fijian team who went on to make the final of the tournament. We then beat Brisbane Fiji in a nail biting semi final and narrowly lost to Australia in the Challenge Final.
Between games I spent time picking Chris’ brain about all things physical preparation and performance. I still keep in touch with Chris and have taken on board a heap of his advice, which I still use today.
More than treating and keeping me on the field for every minute of the tournament, Nathan’s 7s and rugby experience brought another point of view to the game and guidance to many of the boys.
It bred confidence within the team to be surrounded by a wealth of individual experience and expertise from the staff whose dynamics and communication is some of the best I have experienced from a coaching staff.
