The RUPA Players' Alumni network is designed to provide assistance to all of Australia's past professional players.
Transitioning into the next chapter of their lives can be a considerable challenge for former athletes, and the RUPA Players' Alumni serves to support members through networking opportunities (often inclusive of RUPA's sponsors), mindfulness and mental health support (including formal mental health training), ongoing training & education payment entitlements and through holding regular events with players around the country, often based at Rugby matches. RUPA communicates regularly with our alumni network through tailored newsletters and our exclusive past + current player Facebook page.
RUPA is also a proud partner of the Classic Wallabies, and helps organise players to participate within that program.
For more information about the RUPA Players' Alumni, please contact Player Relations Manager Patrick Phibbs.
