Academy passes 1500 hour coaching milestone

The Ealing Trailfinders Academy has this month reached the milestone of delivering 1500 hours of coaching to its members. The players involved range from 15-23 years old as well as Year 8-9 boys and girls from local State Schools.

The Academy has a group of 12 dedicated Rugby coaches spread across all our current areas of responsibility including Senior Academy, Academy U18, U16 & U18 Emerging Player Groups and our Community Schools programme. Our coaches range from professionals to volunteers and include Pro and Academy squad players.

Our 2 Strength and Conditioning coaches ensure we are prepared for all the game can throw at us while our 2 Physios make sure that the players receive the level of quality care at pitch side and in the treatment room to keep all the boys playing.

We are also lucky to have 3 extremely dedicated volunteer managers who work tirelessly to make sure everything runs like clock work.

That’s more than 20 people working together to provide an excellent experience to young players from across the borough and beyond. We are hugely proud of hitting such a significant target for the second season running and would like to thank everyone involved for their hard work and dedication.

We’d also like to thank Ealing Trailfinders Rugby Club and the Mike Gooley Trailfinders Charity for the continued support of young player development.
