TASS is a Sport England-funded partnership between talented athletes, education institutions and national governing bodies of sport, working together to bring the best out of our country's most exciting young talents.

The scheme helps athletes in education - aged 16 and above - to get the very best from their sporting and academic careers without having to choose between the two and from a Rugby League perspective over 30 players are currently benefitting directly from the scheme.
