Leeds Rhinos Foundation is committed to supporting Rugby League at all levels and as well as our work in schools and clubs we also have strong links with a number of Further Education establishments in the city.


We are proud to host and coach the Leeds City College RL team. As part of this partnership, aspiring Rugby League players can study their chosen course at the college whilst having time set in their schedules to train and play for the Academy.

In 2019, Leeds Rhinos and Leeds Rhinos Foundation also launched a ground-breaking Category 3 Rugby League Academy, in partnership with Leeds City College. This has been developed to allow 16-18-year-old learners to combine their academic studies at the college whilst taking part in the Rhinos’ world class Rugby League performance programme and pathway.

Leeds Rhinos Foundation has been able to offer significant support to both Leeds Beckett University and Leeds University to help the development of their men’s Rugby League teams. Leeds Beckett University’s Men’s Rugby League team is a massive success story and in recent years they have won a string of titles and have a prestigious list of alumni, including current Rhinos player Jimmy Keinhorst.

As part of the Leeds Rhinos Foundation’s link with the Universities we host an annual city 9’s competition and also offer support to their coaching staff.
