Sponsorship will also enable us to give our pitch that we all play matches from and its surrounding area some time and care ensuring we continue to provide a safe and secure environment for all involved come training and match days.

"Despite lockdowns and seeing rugby come to a halt we came back stronger and saw Mini Rangers and Open Age return , we gained a Masters team as well. After the success of last years fundraising event this year we are going bigger and better, bigger challenge and a bigger team taking part, last year we managed to kit the club out with new equipment and like our players we are looking to improve every aspect of our rugby club to attract and support players, volunteers and coaches."

MARCH
RFL ROADMAP TO RETURN OF COMMUNITY RUGBY LEAGUE
10.03.21

This is the advice from the RFL:

Community and social Rugby League are set to return from Monday 29 March, 12 months since the Coronavirus outbreak led to the suspension of all activity.

The community game did return briefly and partially during autumn 2020, now it is hoped that Rugby League is back for good across the entire game.

For many, 29 March will mark the beginning of a phased return towards full contact Rugby League. This phased return includes four weeks of training from 29 March, a fortnight of friendlies from 24 April and a resumption of competitions from 8 May.

Social and non-contact variations of the game, such as Touch RL, Try Tag RL and X-League, will also resume from this day, while Masters Rugby League is expected to return when members are finally allowed to socialise more freely off the pitch.

STANLEY'S MINI RANGERS BOOST
03.01.21
CreatedBy RLW 2021
Yorkshire Junior and Youth Amateur Rugby League have received an grant of £11,977 from the CreatedBy RLW2021 Capital Grants Legacy Programme. The grant, which has been awarded to help more people play rugby league at grassroots level in Yorkshire, will fund the league’s new ‘cubs’ programme aimed at attracting players from the ages of three to five. It will be used to provide equipment to clubs to enable them to facilitate new ‘cubs’ teams. The cubs programme is a training programme solely for children under the age of 6, with the aim of providing children a fun welcome to Rugby League. They will learn the basics of grip, catch, carry, passing and scoring tries in a fun and safe environment. The aim is to deliver weekly sessions once a week for boys and girls, based at our local community rugby league clubs.

Stanley Rangers, one of the beneficiaries, said:

"Here at Stanley Rangers ARLFC, we have been offering rugby league opportunities since 1919. We are a family friendly club who encourage siblings of players to step from the sidelines as mascots onto the field to become mini rangers as well involving the local community to take part. Mini Rangers are our foundation. The sessions encourage core rugby skills into fun age relevant activities and games. We are looking forward to getting our minis up and running again in 2021." 

This is great news for our club and we look forward to being able to welcome girls and boys to come along and have fun, make new friends and learn ball skills in a safe environment,

(The Rugby League World Cup 2021 will kick off on 23 October 2021, with the men’s, women’s and wheelchair competitions taking place simultaneously, under one tournament banner for the first time.)
