Maritzburg College is traditionally the dominant schools' rugby force in KwaZulu-Natal. College rugby kit is sponsored by Gilbert and Thirsti are the main name sponsor on the jerseys.

All of our rugby coaches regularly attend coaching courses. Internal coaching courses are also conducted and outside specialists are brought in regularly to address coaches on specific issues whether from a rugby, fitness, conditioning, nutritional or refereeing perspective.

It is Maritzburg College's aim to provide rugby players with the best possible preparation, both on and off the field, and to ensure that their every attribute is harnessed to its fullest potential. Boys will be exposed to the latest coaching methods, well-trained coaches, and a full-time Biokineticist who ensures that boys are regularly monitored with regards to fitness and strength conditioning. Mark Steele (Sharks conditioning coach and an Old Boy) has been used on a consultancy basis. A physiotherapist has rooms in our High Performance Centre and is available every afternoon for consultations.

Rugby players at Maritzburg College will be...

  • exposed to good, well-planned/thought out practices, executed by coaching staff who are well- trained and well-equipped 
  • have access to specialists where and when necessary.
  • able to be put onto a training programme with the Biokineticist, to ensure that they will have proper pre-season and in-season conditioning to ensure that they are in peak physical condition.
  • put onto a proper rehabilitation programme, if injured, to ensure a speedy and full recovery from their injuries.
