London Wasps RFC Academy
Youth, Academy | Acton, London | Players 13-21
The London Wasps RFC England Rugby Academy is one of 14 similar academies based around the country. The role of the Academy is to identify and develop talented young athletes from the age of 13 to 21 and engage them in an Elite High Performance development programme. Athletes progress through three Academy levels, starting at School of Rugby level then moving onto Elite Player Development Group level and finally Regional Academy level.
The objective of the Academy is to maximize the potential of identified elite rugby players and to enhance their personal, education and vocational development opportunities. The standard will necessarily be high, but our aim is to ensure all our Academy Scholarship Holders (those at Regional Academy level) achieve professional contract status at 18. Currently, our success rate is 90%.
