Women and girls rugby league

Women’s Rugby League is one of the fastest growing sports in Leeds and there are now more opportunities than ever for girls across the city to get involved in playing the game.

Through the charity’s Rugby League Development Plan, sponsored by Mears, the Sky Try programme and the ongoing Women and Girls development work, Leeds Rhinos Foundation aim to help more women in Leeds get involved in playing rugby league. Since the start of the school year, Leeds Rhinos Foundation has coached over 350 girls in schools, hosted a number of tournaments for both full contact and Tag Rugby and increased participation with free taster sessions at community clubs across the city.

We have also delivered an extensive programme of Women’s and Girls’ development programmes, ranging from our popular ETP Player Development Days to the launch of our first ever Girls Development Academy with Leeds City College.
