It incorporates four distinct pillars each with specific targets and outcomes and the overall programme aims to increase the number of viewers, spectators and participants in rugby league.
A key priority is to drive long-term growth to develop rugby league and help the sustainability of the sport through measurable outcomes and impact, whilst ensuring uniform product delivery and monitoring.
SKY TRY PRIMARY RUGBY LEAGUE
Delivered in clusters of primary schools, Sky Try Primary is focused on 8-9 year olds (Key Stage 2).
Each primary school receives a minimum of 6 weeks consecutive coaching followed by a ‘next steps event’ such as a special assembly or participation festival.
All primary teachers in the Sky Try project are offered continuing professional development (CPD) to enable them to continue to promote rugby league as an activity in their school.
SKY TRY PLAY TOUCH
A 6-week Touch Rugby League workout project aimed at increasing the number of girls participating at Key Stage 3 and 4 (12 -15). It is focused on fun activity and growing confidence.
SKY TRY LOCAL SCHOOL COMPETITION AND PLAYER DEVELOPMENT
This project is aimed at increasing local opportunities for secondary school boys to play rugby league, either for the first time or to assist in providing more regular opportunities for students at Key Stage 3 (year 7 – 9 boys) to play.
Sky Try offers CPD workshops for secondary school teachers and community coaches of U12-U14 to help young players stay and succeed in rugby league.
