Newcastle Thunder are offering four new opportunities to get more local people into Rugby League.

  • 14+ Girls Rugby League Schools Project (Girls)
  • 16+ Girls Rugby League Schools Project (Girls)
  • City Centre Boot Camp (Thunder Fit)
  • City Centre Touch Rugby Activity (Newcastle Thunder Touch Rugby)


As well as getting more local people involved, the project will help the sport understand and recognise the key drivers behind participants' motivations towards the activity.

The partners will track the social aspect of Rugby League participation in addition to the health gains.

The aim is to help participants build a long-term active habit.

The Girls activity is aimed specific age groups so that some of those taking part can develop into a squad at the end of the programme.

The Thunder Fit and Newcastle Thunder Touch Rugby is aimed at 16+ activity for both men and women.

This project is running across Newcastle, Sunderland and Durham and the surrounding areas.
