Regional NSW to Try League

Author : NSWRL Media

The NSWRL is pleased to announce its successful Try League program will be making a move to regional NSW for the first time since it started two years ago with clinics to be staged at Coffs Harbour (14 October) and Lismore (21 October).

The clinics at Coffs Harbour and Lismore will be part of a five-program blitz taking part across the state with other programs also starting at The Ponds (13 October), Minchinbury (15 October) and Parramatta (21 October) in western Sydney.

“The Try League program is something we are extremely proud of at the NSWRL as our organisation prides itself on being diverse and inclusive,” NSWRL General Manager – Football, Barrie-Jon Mather said.

“The program has gone from strength to strength since it first started as a pilot program in 2018 and it’s great to see kids from non-rugby league backgrounds get involved in the game.

“The clinics are great fun and I encourage kids who aren’t registered but are keen to give rugby league a go to get on board.”

The Try League program, which is backed by Federal and State Government funding, aims to break down the barriers and social isolation for people from diverse backgrounds by introducing them to a non-competitive format of Rugby League.

The pilot program took place in 2018 and involved 70 children but there have since been seven programs involving more than 200 children at areas including Blacktown, Parramatta, Minchinbury, Fairfield and Revesby.
