Primary Rugby League: Testimonial

We are always looking for ways to improve our Primary and Secondary School Engagement Programme so it’s great to receive a testimonial such as the one below:

We had a rugby session at our school  before Christmas and I was asked to give some feedback. Our year 6 classes had a session each one morning last half term.

What went well –

The children were thoroughly engaged and enjoyed themselves.

They learnt new skills.

They developed their teamwork skills.

The sessions were well organised and very clear.

All of the children were very active and well exercised.

Even better if points –

I felt the session was fantastic and the children got a huge amount from it. So the only thing I’d like would be to have an extended run of sessions over a half term because they were so good.

We are due to complete our 2015 Primary Programme over the coming weeks while decision over other funding applications are made and we can begin in earnest for the 2016 season.

Chargers Prepare for 2016 Season

Having made the switch to year round Rugby League last season, the North Derbyshire Chargers are now setting the foundations for the 2016 season in the Yorkshire Junior and Midlands Leagues.

The club continue to recruit at all age groups and this season are looking to put two squads into the Yorkshire Junior League at Under 13s.  We have also forged a strong relationship with a new Open Age & Wheelchair Rugby League club (Derbyshire Devils) to support the development of players aged 16 and above.

We have an urgent need for more volunteers to join the club to help us to continue our expansion.  More details of current vacancies are on the Club Officials page.
