LCT growing the game in Bolton
The winter school term saw Sky Try coaches visit schools in the Bolton area to introduce them to our great game. The programme funded by Sky aims to make a difference to the sport by increasing participants, spectators and viewers of Rugby League. Throughout the term we have visited 9 schools with over 600 pupils from Year 3 and Year 4 taking part in tag rugby sessions where they have learnt the core skills of the game. TJ, one of the Sky Try coaches commented, “The kids have been really receptive to learning something new, for a lot of them this was the first time they had even seen a rugby ball so to get them all involved in all of the sessions and see their interest grow was a great thing for us as coaches”.
