CQUniversity and the CQ Capras have announced a new ‘win-win’ agreement, benefitting the institution and rugby league club.

Under the agreement, the CQ Capras will use CQUniversity’s Rockhampton North campus sporting and fitness facilities for pre-season and in-season training sessions.

Campus facilities available to the Capras youth and senior players will include the sports oval, an outdoor court, the gymnasium and pool.

Out-of-town players will also be able to reside at the Capricornia College when they are in Rockhampton for training or for the full season.

CQUniversity Associate Vice-Chancellor (Rockhampton region), Kim Harrington welcomed the chance to forge even stronger links with the CQ Capras.

“In previous seasons, some of our Exercise and Fitness academics and students have worked alongside the Capras coaching staff,” she said.

“We are happy that we can continue our close ties to the Capras by having the team here on campus using our great facilities.”

Capras CEO Peter White says the club is extremely excited to have access to top-quality training venues.

“CQUni will become a home away from home for our players and coaching staff, where we can really capitalise and benefit on the excellent facilities available,” Mr White says.

“We are also very grateful for the accommodation option offered to us by the Capricornia College. It is vitally important that our players are able to access quality, healthy menus to ensure they are fuelled right and fully recover from each training session and can stay in a fully secured, safe environment.”

The CQ Capras compete in the state-wide Intrust Super Cup Competition which is the direct pathway to the NRL and widely regarded as the second-best rugby league competition in Australia. The club also has teams in the state-wide Hasting Deerings Under 20s competition, Under 18s Mal Meninga Cup and oversee the Under 13s to 16s boys and girls representative program.

The Capras represent the whole Central Queensland region from Bundaberg and Gladstone in the south, Emerald, Blackwater and Longreach in the west and Clermont in the north, which encompasses in excess of 500 000 square kilometres.

The new agreement has been signed in time for the 2018-19 pre-season and 2019 season.
