Check out some of the kind words professionals have written about the Elite Rugby Academy. We are highly recommended by a lot of people within Rugby League.
If you are looking to get the edge in Rugby league then I highly recommend Elite Rugby Academy to achieve your goals. Both Danny and Ryan are the ultimate professionals when it comes to skill work, tactics, strength and conditioning. Come along and be taught by the best!
SIMON ROE, COACH & FATHER OF ELITE RUGBY ACADEMY STUDENT
To All at Elite, I thought it was long overdue that I dropped you a line to support and praise the good work you do at Elite. The skill level of the players from my team that have been attending Elite regularly has noticeably increased. They all have a greater understanding of the game and to hear 9 year old’s talking about line speed, pealing off, wedges and drop offs etc is great to hear. We all want our players to be the next super league superstars and I’m sure with your great work you will certainly produce some. What you should all be proud of is the professional, safe and fun environment that you have created for kids to develop. Keeping kids interested in sport, off the streets and away from tv and games consoles is a passion I share.
Also speaking as a Parent I know Elliott will not do anything on a Monday instead of Elite. He loves his Rugby League and to be coached by professionals rather than his old Dad has really brought him on. He wants to keep fit and wants to play or practice his rugby every chance he gets. I don’t get chance to come down to watch as much as I’d like as Lynchy keeps flogging me at boot camp, but I wanted to drop you a line to thank you for the work you do.
All the best, keep up the great work and I’ll see you at the annual BBQ for “touch” and pass!
Give me the ball and I’ll do the rest!
To Ryan, Claire & all at Elite (but especially the Tuesday night team at Kings!). Due to a change in personal circumstances we moved out of the county over the summer and will no longer be coming to Elite.
I want to express our genuine sadness at this – my son will really miss you all and the friends he has made there. As much as Meibh & I will miss Olivia at the side lines!!
Elite gave my 5 year old son confidence, team spirit and a sense of sportsmanship – all qualities that have made me immensely proud and all that before his brilliant rugby skills and introduction to fitness and nutrition. Now at 8 years old, I know he will carry those skills with him to his new school.
My children have taken part in many sports activities both within and outside of school but Elite is the only that one that has proven to maintain their interest and enthusiasm. The style and quality of coaching brims with positive reinforcement and fun challenges of a standard I wish were seen more often.
So, our heartfelt thanks for our three years at Elite – we will miss you!
Best wishes and kind regards
PS – We will try and pop back to Kings in the future for Darragh to join in and say hi to his friends!

I’ve had the privilege to play and train with Danny and Ryan during my career. They are two experienced professionals who have also got the ability to communicate and pass on their knowledge and expertise. I have no doubt they can make the Elite Rugby Academy a place you can improve all aspects of your game and enjoy doing it.
If you’re looking to get a head start in Rugby league then I recommend you join Elite Rugby Academy. Ryan and Danny will teach you things that no one else could. I know as I play alongside them so get a head start while you can.
The Elite Rugby Academy has been a fantastic introduction to sport for my daughter Sadie and my son Seb. It’s a very inclusive, welcoming environment that makes the children feel comfortable and able to express themselves and most important they have lots of fun and enjoy it. The coaches are all very friendly, approachable and it’s easy to see all the kids that attend Elite Rugby Academy sessions love being coached by them.
All the sessions are thoroughly planned to develop the kids in a variety of areas not just Rugby League. Each session is age appropriate and I’ve helped coach a few of the older groups and the coaching, drills are very current to what is being coached at Super League level, so it’s a great insight for aspiring young Rugby players to see what skills they’ll need.
For me there are so many positives that I’ve seen benefit my children. My son Seb for example has been going from a young age, he can be shy and reserved but he loves going to ‘Elite’ and I’ve seen his confidence grow as well as his athletic ability and his core Rugby skills but most important he really enjoys it, has a great time and can’t wait for his next session.
It is absolutely fantastic what you do with all the kids, Harry has grown in confidence since training with you guys, he has also really improved in his fitness and rugby techniques which he has been able to use when he plays rugby for his local team, it is such a pleasure to see how far he has come and that is with BIG thanks to you all at Elite Rugby Academy. Super work :o)
Harry loves seeing Danny & Ryan each week and Oliver Holmes and James Clare are firm favourites of his too. He enjoys all the different parts of the training especially the wrestling. He can’t wait to get back outside for the training so we are keeping our fingers crossed for sunshine really soon :o)
