With the announcement from Government of another National Lockdown, the
club is awaiting an update from The Rugby Football League as to the next
steps for all clubs. Please be patient as this is a developing situation
which has no doubt thrown up many questions. More information will be
posted as soon as it is available.
STANLEY'S MINI RANGERS BOOST
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.)
HAPPY NEW YEAR FROM STANLEY RANGERS!
It's the 1st of January 2021 and we are all hoping for a
brighter and healthier year not just for the club and rugby league at
all levels but of course for the country as a whole. The competitive ages will be back in January and will hopefully be
taking part in friendlies. The non-competitive ages are looking to be back February and the league starts fully April 2021, dependent on government guidelines.
