The aim of the 12 to18 Review is to identify and address challenges and barriers to supporting as many 12-18 year olds as possible to start, stay and succeed in Rugby League. The drop-off within these age groups significantly reduces the size of the player pool available to the wider game. We all know that too many young people leave Rugby League when they could progress to the level that is right for them as well as enjoying all the wider physical fitness and mental wellbeing benefits associated with team sport.
The 12 to 18 Review is by the game, for the game, and needs everyone in the game.
Aims of the 12 to 18 Review:
There is a huge focus on players and their views. As players are registered with the national governing body we have a massive opportunity as sport to help as many players as possible share their views.
