Apply to join Tigers' new ABC intake

Figure image
If you are a young player and over six feet tall, then this could be for you. Leicester Tigers are looking for a new intake of players to the club's ABC initiative.

This scheme focuses on the bigger young players and is organised by the Tigers Community Department and run with the help of our professional Academy coaches. We are looking to provide extra training for the bigger-than-average player in the U14-U16 age groups.
 Required minimum criteria    
 Age Group  Shoe size  Height
 U14 11+  6ft +
 U15 11+   6ft 2in +
 U16 12+  6ft 2in +


Over the course of the season, specific ABC sessions will be run at the Tigers training ground which will provide an insight into body conditioning, rugby skills, judo and body posture.

Exercise ideas will also be given to the players, to monitor how they progress in between set sessions.

If you are interested in being considered then please download an application form and send it back to Matt Williams ([email protected]) along with any questions or queries you may have.


If your application is successful you will be provided with more information about the first session on Friday, September 19.
