The Southern Districts Rugby Club in conjunction with the Southern Rugby Alliance, Southern Districts Juniors, Illawarra Juniors and the University of Wollongong are pleased to announce the Rebels Accelerated Development Squad for 2020/21 (RADS). The RADS is a program designed to accelerate the development of our best U18s players in the catchment area. 

The selected players will be required to attend a Testing Day on Saturday, 7th of November 2020. This will be followed by an Induction which all parents are encouraged to attend to learn about the goals of the program. A schedule for the Testing and Induction Day will be provided to the squad on 

Monday, 26 October 2020.

There is a strong cultural diversity in the squad which makes for a great learning and development environment. The aim of the program is not only to develop great players, but also great people with a focus on Life Skills and assistance with career development outside of rugby.
