Total Rugby and the National Trade Academy have developed a programme that enables overseas rugby players to travel to Canterbury to learn English and play rugby.
“Take the opportunity to learn English during the day and after class either join a team for practice or gain additional skills with the personalized coaching programme. On Saturday you have the opportunity to play for a team in one of our local competitions.”
TOTAL RUGBY NEW ZEALAND
Total Rugby have been working in the rugby community throughout New Zealand for many years and have developed strong links with many clubs and rugby organisations. We are able to place players in clubs that will enable the them to get regular game time and to progress their own skills and abilities.
The National Trade Academy provides New Zealand and international students with a range of training courses and national qualifications for careers in the land based industries of Agriculture, Equine, Horticulture and Forestry. It also offers international students English language tuition which can include unique New Zealand experiences, such as horse riding, rugby and farming.
At our specialist Training Centre in Christchurch, New Zealand, we cater for New Zealand students, international students and school students.
