The Conditioning Programme is a practical hands-on course where you will see and practice the many drills and exercises that are appropriate for conditioning Rugby players at all levels. More learning will occur as you return to your club or school and continue the process. Also through regular participation on any of the programme provincial seminars you will keep up to date with the ever changing approach to conditioning players.
