The facilities in the High Performance Centre contribute to the superlative coaching standards at College. Every team and every coach has programmes for strength and core training to ensure peak physical development, out-of-season conditioning, and physical resilience. The centre is open to boys and staff during the school term and during the holidays.

Building Strength for Reduced Injuries

By making use of this outstanding equipment and resources, sports injuries are preventable and boys enjoy increased fitness levels and faster recovery time. This is achieved with the advice and guidance of trained professionals within the centre who are on-hand in the event of an injury.

Champion Lifestyles

During their high school years, lifelong habits are instilled. A consistent fitness programme forms a foundation for a healthy lifestyle and is the basis of sporting success. The Ron Jury High Performance Centre holds appeal for boys of all fitness levels to build strength and drill down on the best training for their preferred sporting discipline.

  • “Working in a high-performance environment aimed at accelerating the performance, sport enjoyment, and on-field performance of the boys at College is such an honour. Working day in and day out with world-class colleagues in a sports department serving the boys and the College community at large is an opportunity that many sporting professionals dream of. The facility is of the highest quality and gives College boys the best chance at winning on the field and staying safe, strong, and in peak physical condition. Only the latest science and evidence-based practice is implemented here and everyone involved is extremely proud of what we are building.”

  • “The Ron Jury High-Performance Centre plays a major role in our HP Squad’s physical development within the rugby programme.

    From the u14s through to the 1st XV, we utilise this facility to develop our boys’ physical preparation and movement patterns to excel on the field and to limit injuries.

    We now have fitter, faster, and stronger players who can play the game at a higher intensity and level. We also produce better, well-rounded athletes. This gives us the edge over the opposition.”
