Brothers Future Prems Program (FPP)
The Future Prems Program or FPP is an annual academy program and an investment into the development of our talented players and coaches alike. The program is focused on the player experience with their development of rugby components such as core skill, position specifics, and game sense. The program content will also include player preparations, such as strength, conditioning, injury prevention & management.
The Future Prems Program took over our club academy in 2014 and with many of the players graduating into premier grade over the past 2 seasons the program is proving to be successful.
These players have all come through the FPP / Academy and is testament to the clubs vision and commitment to developing our juniors into Premier Grade calibre players.
Higher honours have also been achieved by a few of our players. Clay Uyen has secured a Western Force contract after representing Australia U20’s, Western Force 10’s, and Perth Spirit. Both Lorenzo and Isaac have gone on to play for the Fijian National 20's team. Victor Harris has gained selection in the Australian 20's Squad. We have also had Sam Jones come through our program and graduated into a Premier Grade Referee.
The FPP is also a development pathway for our aspirational coaches and is over seen by our Premier Grade Head Coach David Wells. The 2018 infield sessions is delivered by Antonio Gerber, Denis Skillen along with development coaches Gavin Hickey, Tamati Young, Simon French-Bluhm, Adrian Nathanielsz. The FPP is managed by Junior Vice President Mostyn Jones.
As the title suggests, the program is designed to develop the next generation of Premier Grade players for the “Brothers” and is testament to the clubs commitment in developing those boys playing in U14’s to U18’s who have the potential to become our Premier players of the future, and as such will receive further skill and fitness enhancements during the closed season. Our age group coaches submit a list of suitable players for assessment. Those players who are selected are then invited to the 10 week program and subsequent induction evening.
