Northwood Is Awarded the Discovery SharkSmart School of Excellence Trophy

The Discovery SharkSmart Schools of Excellence Programme is a project overseen by Sharks Medical and Discovery SharkSmart, and which empowers the participating schools to meet a number of pre-determined criteria related to safe and fair rugby and as well as injury prevention. The ultimate reward is that of accreditation as a Discovery SharkSmart School of Excellence.

Northwood School was one of sixteen schools accredited in 2012 as they were deemed successful having had their coaches BokSmart trained, participated in strength and conditioning programmes, met minimum match day medical requirements, agreed to the SharkSmart nutritional supplements and concussion management guidelines, signed the SharkSmart code of fair play and participated in addressing the use of anabolic steroids.  Our Sports Director, Mr Brian Gow, was at the Discovery Sharks Coaching Conference to receive the award.
