Junior Rovers

The Academy is aimed at children of all abilities aged 6-11, male or female. The Academy's core focus will be to introduce new players to the sport or develop the skills of current junior players, through our excellent coaching team which includes some of our first team players! 

The age 4-5 session starts at 5:30pm (until 6.00pm) and these sessions will be based on fun and enjoyment for the children as well as learning some key fundamental skills such as balancing and catching.

Our next session starts at 6:00pm for ages 6- 8 (until 6:45 pm) and finally 6.45pm for ages 9-11 (until 7.30pm). There are no requirements to join the Academy and no experience in the sport is required.

This is an opportunity for children to learn new skills, meet new people and make friends!

We would like to welcome new participants to these session and your first session will be FREE then £2.00 per session thereafter.

Embed the Pathway

Designed and endorsed by the RFL, ‘Embed the Pathway’ aims to increase the number of quality rugby league players aged between 12 and 14, by providing them a pathway from amateur rugby to Super League and beyond through the support and development of school teachers and community coaches.

The programme brings; coach education, inclusive player profiling, and professional coaching sessions, into a unique scheme to develop a higher number of quality young players, by enabling all players who have access to the sport through their school or community club to connect with the program.

The curriculum consists of three blocks of the following four key work areas:

• Coachability – how do player behaviours and attitudes contribute to development

• Mental Attributes – introducing sports psychology to the young player

• Game – Technical aspects specific to Rugby League

• Movement – the ability of the young player to perform key movements with control and accuracy, vital for their physical literacy.
