Victorian Rugby in conjunction with the Melbourne Rebels and Australian Rugby, offer a clear pathway for talented players to participate in state programs and constantly develop their skills from grassroots to the professional level.

Our programs are managed and run by experienced staff, to mentor the best possible performance of each individual player.

With a complete pathway that stretches from our U12’s Melbourne Rebels side all the way up to the Melbourne Rebels side that runs out on AAMI Park, we are totally focused on keeping our talented youth here in Victoria.

We have the ability to track and monitor all players within our pathway, enabling us the opportunity provide a personalised approach to their long-term development.

The main aim of our programs is to encourage athletic development, enhance skill acquisition in athletes and expose players to a higher level of coaching with a look to their long term player development.

Supporting this are a number of educational programs around nutrition, drugs in sport, social media awareness and best practice for recovery and game day prep, so that all players that enter our pathway leave better players for having been a part of it.
