The NSWRL has today presented a number of key affiliate groups with grants totalling more than $300,000.
NSWRL chief executive David Trodden made the presentation of grants - with a combined total of $309,500 - to 14 bodies, assisting with their delivery of important programs, competitions and representative teams.
Mr Trodden said the distribution highlighted the NSWRL’s desire to develop clear pathways, but was also another example of the organisation’s community focus.
“The NSWRL provides ongoing support for these important bodies with our infrastructure, but there is no substitute for direct financial support,” Mr Trodden said. “By providing these grants, the NSWRL is servicing a critical need.
“This represents significant financial support for one of the most recognised development pathways that the game possesses; the schools.
“It also highlights the NSWRL’s strong focus on community. Our strategic plan is firmly focussed on the community – but particularly the NSW rugby league community. What we’re doing by providing this direct financial funding is meeting the needs of important sections of the NSWRL community.
“Effectively, if we don’t form ourselves as an integral part of the community, if we don’t support our community, we can’t hope to be successful in rugby league. Ultimately, this focus will drive the success of the NSWRL.”
