Schools & Universities

Are you looking for a unique rugby experience?

Your school/university group could:

  • Be immersed in one of the strongest rugby provinces in New Zealand, the home of rugby
  • train and play at the grounds and facilities of the current provincial champions
  • be coached by the current Maori All Blacks coach.

The Taranaki International Rugby Academy offers academic institutions around the world the opportunity to visit New Zealand and experience rugby as it should be experienced – in the most rugby-mad country in the world.

We turn rugby into an art form, offering tour groups an experience like no other. Our coaches and facilities are of premium, international standard – exactly what you’d expect at the pulse of the sport.

The right match

We offer flexible packages to match your requirements and budget. Our full service land packages take care of all your needs from the moment you arrive in New Zealand to the time you leave, and can be tailored to suit your group. The package includes:

  • Coaching: strength and conditioning, technical, tactical, video analysis and nutritional sessions.
  • Tour matches.
  • Accommodation, catering and internal travel.
  • Tourist activities.

Alternatively, you can choose a rugby-only package that focuses on our world-class coaching.

Upskill and inspire

Our team is very experienced in working with school and university groups, and we love to play host to international groups – it’s a great chance for us to showcase our sport, and everything Taranaki has to offer.

We have previously hosted groups from Hong Kong, China and Japan. They come to us because we offer more than just a standard rugby tour. We work with your team and coaches to upskill them on the latest trends and developments in rugby – and deliver a memorable, inspirational experience for every member of your group.
