Backyard League is an exciting initiative introducing students to Rugby League in a safe, non-competitive and fun environment. The program equips students and teachers with the tools to play a version of our great game in any environment while delivering important education, health and welfare messages. Accredited and professional NRL staff will visit your school to deliver this exciting program to your students.
Your Backyard League lesson may be incorporated into your classroom timetable. Alternatively, we also offer schools the option to run a before or after school program for students. Programs can be conducted over five consecutive weeks or any alternative that is most convenient for you. The Backyard League program comprises your choice of 1, 3, or 5 lessons of 30-45 minutes with activities based on students’ age and ability. All activities are modified to encourage maximum involvement and enjoyment for all participants.
To make a booking for your school, please select the program that best suits (see table below) and contact your local NRL Game Development Officer or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
