Programs Offered by Girl Power

We are excited about bringing girls rugby to the Western Cape community! With limited school opportunities for young girls to play rugby, Girl Power Rugby Academy will provide girls with the full Rugby Experience. GPRA is a non discriminatory enviroment that welcomes all girls no matter their skill level.

Girl Power Rugby Academy is a year long Program that will not only provide your child with the opportunity to learn key fundamental rugby skills but also essential social and emotional skills such as: increased self-confidence, self-efficacy, resilience, teamwork etc.

Some of the fundamental rugby skills that will be learnt:

  • Passing
  • Catching
  • Running
  • Agility
  • Tackling
  • Spatial awareness

As our Academy grows and we gain momentum, we will be aiming at extending our Programs and casting our net out to include as many girls as possble. We must make sure that all families are able to get exposure to rugby. ALL our Programs are FREE TO TRY.

Looking ahead, and as soon as we have enough numbers we will be looking at sending our girls to other parts of the country, and very soon; overseas.
Indeed, we have partners in the USA and United Kingdom with whom we are preparing In and Out Tours. We just need enough girls! There is nothing better than a rugby tour, where the girls will forge unbreakable bonds while participating in Rugby Immersion; practicing and playing rugby twice a day, every day. And maybe find a moment to visit the local sights!

Keep a look out as we expand out footprint and Programs.
