Rugby Development

Elite Performance Sports (EPS) was founded to provide an opportunity for those seeking to learn rugby or improve on their playing skills. EPS also provides sports coaching services and is also a sports tour facilitator in addition to event organisation and management. Our member’s ages range from 6 to 17 years with the majority falling in the 13-16 years age group, drawn from various schools around Nairobi. Senior players over 18 years join us after completing school to polish up on their rugby playing skills before moving on to club rugby.

Since taking up Parklands Sports Club as their base in 2013 has seen EPS grow in stature and recognition. More than 100 players of all ages have passed through the rugby academy programme. EPS has hosted under 16 year tournaments in the 10’s, 7’s, and 15’s version of the game. It has also taken players to South Africa on skill, talent, and educational and cultural tours in the years 2014, 2015, and 2016. Seven of our players have been selected to the Kenya under 20 national 2017 team squad. Three of our players were scouted by a visiting South Africa coach who held a camp in November 2016 and was hosted at Parklands Sports Club. They await formal admission to schools in Durban, South Africa on 100% scholarships. Negotiations are ongoing with an education placement company to offer two scholarships annually to our players to study at selected universities outside Kenya.

To further develop the game EPS has approached 10 schools within greater Westland area and started work with 3 of them under its TUCHEZE RUGBY programme.
It is our hope that we shall have more players from PSC membership signing up to train with us as the year progresses.
