SUFC is continuing to build our junior development program by expanding our academy program designed to develop the next generation of female rugby stars. This will result in three Cubs programs:
Gold Cubs – training based in the Sydney Inner West
Blue Cubs – training based in NSW Central West
Red Cubs – training based at Barker College
The Cub’s Academy runs over winter and involves two trainings per week and Sunday Games with times and dates TBC. The program is designed to both complement player’s current participation as well as acting as a feeder for the University of Sydney AON 7s program. The program will select up to 24 girls to participate in this specialised Rugby 7s and XV’s training and compete under the Blue, Gold and Red Jersey of the Academy.
