North Derbyshire Chargers RLFC launch Primary/Touch Rugby League programme

Recommended Posts

This coming Saturday (March 2nd) sees the North Derbyshire Chargers hold their first combined Primary Rugby League and Touch Rugby League events, providing playing opportunities for any gender and any ability from the age of 6 upwards. Delivered in partnership with the Midlands Rugby League and Sheffield Eagles, Primary Rugby League provides the opportunity for younger players to develop valuable skills and agility within a non contact format, prior to plying their trade in the 13 v 13 version of the game.

The club are running four introductory sessions each Saturday morning at Netherthorpe School (Staveley, Chesterfield, S43 3PU) with sessions being led by our Coach Co-ordinator, Kane Krlic, and Tom Hughes, our Under 12s and Under 14s coach.

The first session is free, with subsequent sessions costing £2 per festival or training event attended. To continue with Primary Rugby League, children will need to register with the club which costs £35 and for which they will receive a pair of club shorts and club socks.

The event starts at 10:00 and lasts 90 minutes. We would welcome anyone with an interest in playing, coaching or volunteering for the club and look forward to bringing on the next generation of players.

Primary Rugby league get off to a strong start.

Primary Rugby league started off with a bang in Derbyshire last week. With over 60 kids participating in evening Rugby league sessions. The first session took place on Friday evening at Heanor, where all children from the Opengate cluster schools were invited to come and try Rugby league in partnership with Derby City. Young leaders from Heanorgate school and Derby City RLFC coaches Alex Dale and Eric Robinson were on hand to provide quality coaching to the children. Mark Ozenbrook, Opengate partnership manager spoke, “Kane Krlic has been working in our primary and secondary schools for the last three years and all the children continually enjoy playing Rugby league, we felt it was time to take it one step further and look at creating a satellite team at the high school (Heanorgate) working in partnership with Derby City RLFC. The interest to play Rugby league in the area has taken everyone by surprise and it was great today, seeing children aged from 5 -11 all running around with a smile on their face. Despite the great numbers today, I’m confident the amount of players joining the club will grow, as the word gets spread around town of what a good time all the children are having!”

The second session was held on Saturday morning at North Derbyshire Chargers new Primary league venue, Netherthorpe school. The session was led by Derbyshire community coach, Kane Krlic and Chargers u14s head coach Tom Hughes. The morning consisted of the children learning and playing numerous rugby-related games. Kane Krlic said, of the day, “Everyone has really bought into the Primary league concept in the area. It’s great to see so many children, that have never played Rugby league before, playing lots of different games, having heaps of fun whilst also developing their rugby league skills”.

The primary league season will kick off on the 29th March at Don Valley stadium, where all children from the North Midlands and South Yorkshire that want to play rugby league will be invited to compete in a Tag Rugby festival, which will take place prior to the Sheffield Eagles v Doncaster RLFC Championship game.

"I am the avenging angel; I come with wings unfurled, I come with claws extended from halfway round the world. I am the God Almighty, I am the howling wind. I care not for your family; I care not for your kin. I come in search of terror, though terror is my own; I come in search of vengeance for crimes and crimes unknown. I care not for your children, I care not for your wives, I care not for your country, I care not for your lives." - (c) Jim Boyes - "The Avenging Angel"
