The NRL’s new National Junior Participation Program has arrived!

The junior rugby league program is open to students aged 5 to 12 in over 40 locations across Queensland in term one.

No experience is necessary, and this is a great introduction for new players and allows all participants to participate in non-contact rugby league skills program in a fun and friendly environment.

North Queensland Toyota Cowboys Game Development Manager Liam Bartlett said the program is a great way for kids to get involved in the sport and make new friends.

“The National Junior Participation Program run by NRL development is a great concept to introduce new and current players to fun rugby league skills in a safe and friendly environment,” said Bartlett.

“Grassroots rugby league is imperative to not only grow the game but inspire kids to learn new skills, have fun and meet new friends.”
