The Marist St Pats Academy programme kicked off this week with the goal to help our young players achieve their goals on and off the field. Led by Julius To'o and Aaron Bouzaid, the players will gain knowledge and skills in line with New Zealand Rugby's six developmental pillars.
This week the group started with an introduction to nutrition with Nutritionist Marco Mollo who later met with individuals to help them tailor plans to understand how to get the best out of their diet. On Saturday the Academy members will be put through their paces in a Strength and Conditioning session at Tamashii Crossfit.
We caught up with Julius and some of the players during the week to get an overview of what they expect to achieve through this programme.
