The Glendale Raptors Academy
The Glendale Raptors Rugby Academy is an elite development program for younger players – under 23 years of age – who show potential to play at the highest level. This structure provides players a professional training program and the possibility of being selected to play for the Raptors professional side, or to be recruited by other domestic or international clubs.
The Academy program doesn’t just develop great rugby players, but thriving members of society and the broader sporting community. To that end, Glendale’s programming also includes career and education assistance and help with affordable housing opportunities. We also encourage all of our athletes to participate in community service while playing with Glendale’s rugby clubs.
