Add to calendar

Children from ages six to eleven years take part in seventy-five minutes of activities designed to improve balance, co-ordination and overall fitness levels as well as the opportunity to develop Rugby League specific skills such as ball handling and evasion. No prior knowledge of the sport is required, as the onus is open fun and enjoyment.

These events lead on to a Summer of Primary Rugby League festivals with other clubs across North Derbyshire and South Yorkshire.

Activities will be indoor from March 1 to April 5 within the sports hall.
