The Wildcats’ Sky Try Rugby League Programme sees the club’s community trust visit schools and delivering rugby league coaching programmes to girls and boys of various ages.
Aiming to introduce 100 000 new people to rugby league each year, the nationwide Sky Try programme has four specific targets, all of which the Wildcats’ strive to achieve through visiting over 30 schools in the local area.
The four targets are:
- ‘Sky Try Primary Rugby League’, which focusing on delivering coaching sessions to 8-9 year olds within a cluster of primary schools that are located around community clubs.
- ‘Sky Try local school competition and player development’, which aims at increasing the opportunities for secondary school boys in years seven and nine to play rugby league, whether it be for the first time or more regularly.
- ‘Sky Try play touch’, which is a six week touch rugby workout for girls, aiming to increase participation levels of girls within the sport at key stage three.
- ‘Making the big games bigger’, which sees a children from all three of the other targeted areas have the opportunity to compete in short touch rugby matches at Belle Vue stadium prior to kick-off of a Wildcats’ first team game.
