The re-emergence of the Hong Kong China Rugby Union Academies is a source of developing Hong Kong’s elite youth players in preparation for representation at the World Rugby Trophy Under 20’s Competition
Currently at Youth Level there will be trials and intakes (12 players) at Under 17, 18 and 19 for Boys and Under 23 for girls.
This Academy is separate from the National Age Group Squads (NAG) which will still be operating as they have in the past.
Valley Fort is always prepared to provide pathways for its players who are aspiring players and who have shown the ability to progress to the next level with their Rugby.
Selection processes are determined by the Hong Kong China Rugby union and usually involve practical trial days.
Through team Managers and Coaches who have a clear understanding of the abilities of their players nominations will be submitted for inclusion in selection for trials for both NAG and National Academy positions.
The coaching program at Valley Fort will continue to strive to develop the skills and performance of our players so that we continue to gain representation at the next level of player pathways in Hong Kong.
