Started in 2012

The SCC Rugby Academy began in January 2012, inspired by a group of rugby players from the Singapore Cricket Club (SCC) adult Rugby Section who wanted to give their kids the best coaching experience. Year on year our Rugby and Touch sections have grown enormously. 

We share expertise and benefit from talented coaches many who still play rugby for the adult section of the SCC and some who regularly play or coach for the Singapore national team, making us stand out as a junior rugby club in Singapore.

One of the goals of the founders of the Academy was to provide a unique transition from junior to adult rugby. Our U19 squad achieved that goal, and includes many players who started with the Academy at the very beginning.

INCLUSIVE

From a handful of families and rugby players who started the club we have grown to more than 600 members and pride ourselves on our dedicated coaches and friendly atmosphere. 

We are an inclusive club where we believe every player matters.

We welcome experienced and new players who arrive in Singapore and we encourage talented players from local schools with our unique scholarship scheme. 

Our club is a diverse mix with our players attending nearly 100 different local and international schools across Singapore.

We aim to provide a life long rugby experience from U4s to Colts (U19) and onto adult teams at SCC.

Running of SCC Rugby Academy

The Academy is steered by a small team of directors and a committee of volunteers who regularly meet to discuss the running and direction of the club. We are a not for profit club, all of our money goes back into rugby.

We enjoy an annual Academy social event for parents usually held at Singapore Cricket Club and we hold bake sales and collect old kit for a charity in Manila, the Cararoo Foundation, supporting disadvantaged children by funding their education and enabling them to participate in after school activities like rugby.

We encourage all parents to get involved to whatever extent they wish.
