Vigor Rugby is proud to announce our partnership with Hetton School to provide a Rugby Academy.

The academy will develop players and give them the chance to fulfil their full potential and support them in becoming the best rugby player they can be, all whilst receiving a great education at Hetton School.

The academy runs every Thursday for two hours, it gives players not only the opportunity to develop their skills and understanding through training and regular games but will offer them the chance to learn how to referee games and help coach local primary schools.
