Academy Personal Development

Refine, Develop and Inspire

Personal Development

Sale FC Rugby Academy is not just about playing rugby, it is much more than that. We as a club feel it is our duty to not only develop you as a player on the pitch, but also off the pitch.

As an Academy player, you will become an integral part of the club. This means that we aim to support you in every way possible as you transition into senior rugby and leave school into either full time employment or further education. We help assist you away from the playing side, in areas such as;

  • As an academy player you will have the opportunity to gain coaching badges, paid for by the club, which will not only enhance your rugby knowledge but open up avenues to complement your playing activities.
Employability Skills

  • Free evening workshops, held at Heywood Road, which will provide assistance on such areas as;
    • CV writing
    • Employability
    • Introduction to Project Management

The clubs has close links with Manchester Metropolitan University which the club utilises to offer you assistance in preparation for University.
