Sky Try is a seven year programme supporting the development of grassroots participation of the sport across the UK.

The multi-million pound project empowers Rugby League clubs’ charitable Foundations across the country to make a massive difference by delivering new opportunities to play, watch and become involved in the sport.

The project will target development in four key areas between now and the end of 2020 – Primary Rugby League, Secondary Rugby League, Play Touch Rugby League and the ‘Making The Big Games Bigger’ campaign.

Since launching in 2015, the project has gone a long way in reaching it’s initial target of over 100,000 people of all ages each year continuing the intention of increasing the number of people regularly involved in community clubs or as spectators and viewers.

Each year, Leeds Rhinos Foundation is responsible for introducing hundreds of new players to our Ambassador community clubs by inviting them to get a taste of playing rugby league for the first time at our Sky Try Taster sessions, which include fun games, basic coaching drills and special visits from Leeds Rhinos first team players.

The dates of our next Sky Try taster sessions are:

  • Friday 23rd April- Hunslet Club Parkisde (Under 7s)
  • Wednesday 28th April- East Leeds ARLFC (Under 9s)

To book a place on these taster sessions, please contact
