The New Zealand Institute of Sport (NZIS) has a strong partnership with the Wellington Rugby Football Union (WRFU) . NZIS and the WRFU work together to provide a range of training programmes, NZIS provide study scholarships to WRFU Academy players and develop the pre elite Academy programme through NZIS as a potential “Feeder” through to the WRFU Academy.
“NZIS deliver high quality programmes that provide opportunities for all learners to work towards their potential. The guiding principles of the WRFU is to develop our people to the best of their ability on and off the field. The partnership with NZIS will allow many of our young athletes to develop and grow outside of rugby and help them prepare for their future”. Steve Rogers, CEO of Wellington Rugby
“We are thrilled about our association with the Wellington Rugby Football Union, and the opportunity to contribute in the development and careers of these young emerging athletes”.
