The popularity of Rugby League in the UK continues to soar as more and more people enjoy the modern game. The Super League, of course, is leading the way with competition between clubs getting more intense with each passing season. As a result, the grassroots are getting stronger enabling youngsters to get a feel for the sport at a very young age. In truth, Junior Rugby League is blossoming, paving the way not only for the stars of the future but also for the introduction of vital life skills.
Every well-known club now has a community department, charged with involving people of all ages in a range of fantastic events aimed at bringing individuals together. However, it’s the children who stand to benefit most from the games’ infrastructure. Seeing as we live in a more demanding world where the safety of youngsters is paramount, a special handbook aimed at all parents and guardians has been produced. This handbook covers children and young people playing Club Rugby League at all levels – from Primary to the Academy level upwards.
