What We Do:
Players, People, Possibilities


Eastside Lions Youth Academy has the primary focus of creating and inspiring better people through the sport of Rugby. We operate around 3 underlying values:

  • Players – we instill a work ethic in the players, both on and off the field that allows them to develop the core attributes of Respect, Accountability, Team Spirit, Leadership and Responsibility all while having great fun. These are in addition to the obvious benefits of players becoming physically fitter and spending more time outside being active

  • People – by developing these core attributes at the youth age, they become an inherent part of the players character, not just for today but for the future. Many rugby players, both male and female who have achieved great things attribute their development to values they learnt through rugby

  • Possibilities – enabling players to hunt out, grasp and achieve more opportunities in life thanks to the positive mindset that rugby instills in them. The rugby world is also known for it’s great work in giving back to the community. This is from the sense of social responsibility of the Players who become better People thanks to the sport and thus create more Possibilities for others

At the Eastside Lions Youth Academy we are developing young Players from all backgrounds to become better People and create more Possibilities for themselves and others in their communities
