Player Development - Girls
As part of our continued commitment to women’s and girls rugby league, York City Knights are delighted to announce our RISE Development Academy for girls.
This programme will take place every other Wednesday night at the York St John University Haxby Road facility, and will be working towards identified technical markers, such as core skills and tackle technique, as well as embedding the culture and standards associated with the Knights’ philosophy.
These pathway sessions will run for u14s, u16s and u18s, with the hope of developing a younger batch of players to feed the women’s game in the future, as well as the York City Knights team.
Players will continue to train and play as normal with their community club or schools, but will experience elite level coaching, basic strength and conditioning, and nutrition support from the RISE Development Academy.
Those attending will receive Knights training kit and will become part of the Club with access to match day and first team events.
We will also endeavour to provide high quality CPD for club coaches and teachers, as well as relevant support for parents and carers.
