Junior Learning Disability Super League sessions are here!

The Foundation are delighted to announce that on Friday 9th June, we will be launching our first ever Junior LDSL training session, following the launch of our Junior PDRL and Wheelchair teams.

The ‘Community Integrated Care Learning Disability Super League’ gives people with learning disabilities the opportunity to play an adapted version of Rugby League, in a series of high-profile festivals and events.

The programme aims to promote the development of skills, confidence and positive experiences for people with learning disabilities, and make a major statement about social inclusion. Learning Disability Rugby League is a specially adapted non-competitive game, which focuses on encouraging participation and skills development.

The Leeds Rhinos Foundation are the first organisation to offer bespoke training sessions for those under the age of 16, across the disability game. This includes 6 separate sessions a week, one for those under the age of 16 and one for those above, across the 3 games: Learning Disability, Physical Disability and Wheelchair.

Disability Officer, Ed Bates, said: “We’re really excited that on the 9th June, our Junior Learning Disability Super League sessions will be starting at our Bartercard Training base. This caps it off for us as the sixth session in our inclusive offer, now having both senior and junior opportunities in our Wheelchair, Physical Disability Rugby League and Learning Disability Super League programmes. This is massive for our guys as it gives an opportunity for the children of Leeds, living with a learning disability, the opportunity to come and play rugby league at our brilliant facilities.”

Our Junior LDSL sessions will take place every Friday from 5-6pm and is open to those under the age of 16.
