Sporting Schools Program

Sporting Schools programs are provided free to children and their families to help students build the confidence and capability to be active for life. To help achieve this, Sport Australia has partnered with the National Rugby League to deliver fun, safe and inclusive programs to students around Australia. Each term, schools can apply for funding to have professionally delivered, non-contact Rugby League programs at your school.
