True Blue Craig Wing to support Try League in Parramatta
Author : NSWRL Media Release
True Blue Craig Wing will be a special guest for the final week of NSWRL’s 2020 Try League program for culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) communities being held at Parramatta tomorrow (Wednesday 9 December) where a record number of 58 participants have taken part.
The Parramatta event is one of eight Try League programs attended by almost 200 children in 2020 in locations including Coffs Harbour, Glenwood, The Ponds, Revesby and Minchinbury, despite COVID-19 limiting participation and delivery throughout the middle of the year.
This year Try League was introduced into regional areas for the first time at Coffs Harbour and Lismore where 45 children took part in the eight-week program, which 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.
“It was wonderful to see so many children from traditional non-Rugby League backgrounds take part in this year’s Try League program, especially considering the difficult year it has been on a global scale,” NSWRL Chief Executive David Trodden said.
“To have a record-breaking 58 participants becoming involved at the Parramatta program is an outstanding result and I look forward to NSWRL administering more successful programs next year.”
The Try League program is backed by the Federal Government (Move It AUS program) and State Government (Multicultural NSW) and first took place in 2018 and involved 70 children.
WHAT: NSWRL Try League, supported by the Federal Government’s Move It AUS initiative
WHEN: 6-7pm, Wednesday 9 December 2020
WHERE: Old Sale Yards Reserve, 76 Gladstone Street, North Parramatta
WHO: True Blue Craig Wing and Try League participants
