The Myerscough College Rugby Academy is a joint venture in partnership with Sale Sharks Rugby and is the accredited RFU Elite Player Development Centre for the North West. Our relationship with Sale Sharks and the RFU allows us to offer students a unique opportunity to train as professional athletes and secure a dream job in professional Rugby Union. No stone is left unturned for rugby players at Myerscough and players enjoy vast amounts of top quality coaching, strength and conditioning and medical support from our onsite team.
Playing rugby at Myerscough provides an unrivalled platform for students to demonstrate their talent to one of the leading clubs in AVIVA Premiership Rugby and the chance to break into the Sale Sharks youth or senior squads.
In order to maximise student’s skills development, Academy players are given the opportunity to train at the highest level in professional Rugby with Sale Sharks.
At Myerscough, we pride ourselves on providing opportunities for our students to test themselves against the best of the rest. In recent years, we have taken part in the AASE Final and the British College's Final as well as many other tournaments and competitions. Our players regularly get called up to represent their county and their country and many have gone on to make it in the professional game.
Our specialist team of teaching and coaching staff focus on developing students; as players, coaches, referees and administrators, as well as providing elite training and coaching -on a day-to-day basis - before encouraging students to represent club sides at weekends. Our exceptional links with local rugby clubs such as Fylde, Preston Grasshoppers, Garstang, Thornton-Cleveleys and Fleetwood mean that there are also many playing opportunities, away from the Myerscough Academy, regardless of your playing level.
