Thousands of talented teenage male and female players across the state will have the opportunity this week to apply for access to specialist coaching as part of the NSWRL RISE Rugby League Development Program launched today.
The program is designed to provide Community Rugby League players from Under 13s to Under 15s specialised training and education through a holistic Rugby League development experience.
“I am really excited to see the start of the RISE program in NSW,” NSWRL RISE Academy Manager Adam Perry said.
“It is a great opportunity not just for players in that 13–15-year age group but also for coaches to grow and develop their skills that can then be filtered down into the Community Rugby League clubs across the state.
“It is important that we provide an accessible pathway for all our players and coaches to be able to foster the growth of the NSWRL pathways system.”
The initiative will provide players quality coaching over the course of five training sessions that will take place from May to October this year.
Key areas of the player development program include technical and tactical development, physical development, and socio-emotional development.
The program is open to males (13-15 years) currently registered to a Community Rugby League Club and open to all females (13-16 years).
