Please see in  'Files' below a document regarding RFL and Arches School Sports Partnership.

You may be aware that last academic year the Sheffield Federation for School Sport delivered some very successful rugby league competitions. Competitions were offered for years 7, 8 and 9 boys. Each school competed in their own regional competitions (North and South). The winners of the North and South competitions represented their region in the Sheffield Grand Finale. The Grand finals for each year took place at the same time and venue creating a rugby league finals day. The finals day was supported by Sheffield Eagles first team players who provided trophies and certificates for all the finalists.

We are pleased to offer another rugby league package this year. This is a fantastic opportunity for the students of Sheffield to gain an experience of competitive rugby.

Colleagues from across the city have been working together to organise a rugby league competition for KS3 students. This will feed into the national RFL competitions for schools and provide students with the opportunity to develop their core rugby skills.

Each year group will have two competition nights where they will complete as many fixtures as possible in a league format. The teams who are first and second in the league at the end of the two evenings of competition will compete for the grand final trophy during the finals event.

Each competition will be held at All Saints School (Norfolk park pitch).

The dates and times for each competition are below;

April 14th Y9 (4pm)

April 19th Y8 (4pm)

April 27thh Y7 (4pm)

May 3rd Y9 (4pm)

May 12th Y8 (4pm)

May 17th Y7 (4pm)

June 14th Y7/8/9 Finals

 If you would like to enter a team into a competition please email me, specifying which year groups you will be entering.

Sheffield Eagles staff will attend each competition and will be refereeing the games, all you need to do is bring a team!

I would urge all schools to consider delivering rugby as part of their curriculum. Attending rugby competitions available through the SFSS will aid the development of generic rugby skills.

If you would like further information regarding rugby league in general please feel free to contact Nick Gill at Sheffield Eagles, his email address is
