MCTD & IRANZ, the world's leading rugby academy based in New Zealand offer a range of Rugby Training & Development programmes including:
- Elite High-Performance Rugby Training for Players, Coaches and Teams at the IRANZ Academy in NZ including male, female and 7's formats
- Hosted Partnered International Rugby Training Camps delivered on-site by IRANZ
- Train & Play the 2020 Rugby Season in NZ programme for Elite level players
- Train & Play a Rugby Season in the UK (coming soon)
- Team Rugby Tours and Events
It all starts with a 3-week residential High-Performance Players course at IRANZ on January 26th 2020. At the course, players will be assessed and evaluated, and IRANZ will introduce and place you in a Rugby Club in NZ relevant to position and skill level, where you will play for the season. Being placed in a Rugby Club that fits your profile will help you grow and develop your rugby skills. Approximately 50 % of Players who complete the IRANZ High-Performance Players course go on to play professional rugby.
In addition, you will be able to apply for a visa which will allow you to live and work in New Zealand for up to 12 months. MCTD will provide instructions on how to obtain the visa and will provide settlement and relocation information to assist you to make the transition to live in NZ.
If you are looking to take your Rugby to the next level and want to train, play, live and work in New Zealand then this programme is for you.
If you are interested, please send your Rugby CV including your Nationality, age and marital status to MCTD. We also would like you to provide an outline and overview of your rugby experience, aspirations and objectives. Once we have that we will come back to you to discuss your options.
