WESTERN SYDNEY RUGBY LEAGUE ACADEMY
The Bankstown Bulls are very happy to announce the appointment of Jason Amos to the positions of Coaching Director of the Bulls and Head Coach of A Grade for the 2021 Rugby League season.
Jason will also head up the new Western Sydney Rugby League Academy.
The Western Sydney Rugby League Academy (WSRLA) will launch on 5 November 2020. The academy will be led by our director of coaching, Jason Amos.
Jason brings vast experience to the academy, having spent multiple years as a coach at a junior level as well as in the the junior development systems at various NRL and Rugby Union clubs. Jason has previously spent two years as a development coach at the Melbourne Storm, focusing on players 16-18 years of age. He has also previously held position at the QLD Reds, Melbourne Rebels Rugby (focusing on their junior representative system), and as head coach with the grand final winning A-grade team at Coogee Randwick Wombats.
Given Jason’s previous experience in various NRL junior development systems, most notably his stint with the Melbourne Storm, he knows the expectations and what it takes for players to develop from simply playing park footy to strapping on the boots for an NRL debut. Therefore, players will be at a great advantage when joining the academy as they will be taught the necessary skills to realise their dreams and play under the big lights.
Jason will also be assisted with the academy by coaches from within junior league teams, whom he will personally teach and mentor, as well as current and former NRL and NRLW players.
Senior Academy Program
Players born in 2008 (u13’s) to 2002 (u19’s), will be placed in our ‘academy’ program. This program will focus on developing players to the requisite standard and expectations of Harold Matthews, SG Ball and Tarsha Gale squads. Players in the academy program will be coached and tested on fitness and skills, to the standards required by NRL junior development systems. Specific sessions will also focus on resilience, dealing with mental health and adversity.
Senior Academy Cost
For the summer 2020/2021 period, the cost for our academy program will be $185, or an active kids voucher + $85. However, discounts will be applied for siblings. The cost will be $135 for a second child and $100 for a third and subsequent child. All payments can include an active kids voucher.
The cost will include the academy apparel, comprising of a training tee, training shorts and backpack.
A message from Jason: “I am here to help develop future champions at this wonderful family club. After giving away top level sport, I really wanted to give back to grass roots, after all grass roots gave me my start as a player many years ago. I want every child, male or female and regardless of athletic ability, to develop, learn and enjoy this great game of rugby league. I want success for all involved at the Bulls, I want to also deliver the club an A Grade premiership that we can all enjoy. Lets all work together and make this happen.”
Please welcome Jason to the Mighty Bulls!
