Inspired by the Rugby League World Cup?
If you are inspired by the Rugby League World Cup we would like to hear from you if you would be interested in taking part in new Rugby League playing opportunities.
With dates for open sessions to be announced in the coming weeks we would like to know if you are interested in finding out more about:
Wheelchair Rugby League- this is the most inclusive and accessible variant of Rugby League for all abilities. The game is quite unique in that it offers both disabled and able-bodied players the opportunity to compete both with and against each other. No matter what gender all players compete on a level playing field which is created by the use of wheelchairs.
Physical Disability Rugby League (PDRL)- this is a full contact version of the game adapted for participants with a physical disability who want to access a running version of Rugby League. PDRL is a competitive offer but has a wider focus on enjoyment in participating in team sport as well as impact on all the wider social benefits the sport of Rugby League provides. Players can join a team to get involved with training sessions, festivals, and competitions.
The game includes full contact tackles, but players who have a disability that restricts them from safely playing full contact or under the age of 18 are permitted to play Touch RL tackle rules.
Learning Disability Rugby League (LDRL)- this is a tag version of the game for people with learning disabilities with a focus on enjoyment and participation. Players can join the team to get involved with training sessions and festivals. This team currently exists in York through our Foundation and we are always looking for new players to join our squad.
