Primaries Open Day

3 Mar, 2018


2018 Elmbridge Eagles have partnered up with London RL Foundation and Sky Try to offer free rugby league coaching to children in Years 3 and 4.

Sky Try is all about helping more children enjoy rugby league nationwide. It's a ground-breaking new partnership initiative between the RFL, Sky and the rugby league foundations.

Sky Try is the biggest ever programme of rugby league opportunities on primary and secondary schools. Sky Try is helping 700,000 more children and young people have fun, get active, grow in confidence and enjoy rugby league.

The Sky Try campaign inspires children and young people through professional rugby league clubs and major rugby league events. Sky Try is changing the future of rugby league by giving hundreds of thousands of children and young people a high-quality introduction to the sport and helping them find more playing opportunities - from school teams to local community clubs and the award-winning talent pathway.

Currently, four schools have signed up to receiving coaching from Sky Try and the London RL Foundation:

Each school will receive six weeks of coaching, before competing in a primaries festival on 23rd March 2018. This festival is host by Elmbridge Eagles, at Oaken Lane. In addition to the four schools receiving the coaching, a further twelve schools will join them on the day.
