Next Phase Rugby, Panther Academy Announce Partnership

Panther Academy and Next Phase Rugby have formed a partnership.

Panther Rugby Academy and Next Phase Rugby announced a strategic partnership to cross-promote their services to the youth and college rugby communities.

Panther Academy will leverage the Next Phase Rugby platform to further support it’s players to research schools that meet their academic and rugby goals. Using the app, Panther players can promote themselves through on-line profiles and highlight videos, use advanced search features to find schools, and access coaching contact details for their target schools. 

Under the partnership, Next Phase Rugby will communicate Panther Academy camps and events to it’s high school athletes. In addition, Next Phase Rugby will offer preferred pricing on its premium membership to all registered Panther Academy players.

Panther Rugby Academy is an officially recognized USAR National Development Program that offers coach and player camps, elite competition and this summer has a tour to England and Wales.

“As an official High Performance Pathway we focus not only on MLR and International level athletes, but also have a role in connecting high school athletes with collegiate programs. We have a dual role to help promote university programs that support PRA. The Next Phase program helps us accomplish both goals.” said Mark Williams, President of Panther Rugby Academy.

Next Phase Rugby launched it’s recruiting app in May, and has seen strong growth amongst both high school rugby programs and colleges. The app has quickly become the largest on-line rugby recruiting platform in the country with hundreds of high school players from over ten countries.

Greg Stelluti, Next Phase Rugby President, added: “Panthers consistently develops some of the top high school rugby players in the country, and we are excited that we can help Panthers’ student-athletes to expand their college opportunities and play rugby at a collegiate level.”
