NRL Welfare and Education

Success on and off the field

The goal of our Welfare and Education Program is to turn talented boys into men of character and integrity; men who are all the better for having been part of Rugby League.

Every element of the program is designed to help our young players grow and develop their potential in every aspect of their lives.
We want them to be proud of the game they love and play. Balanced in their approach to life, knowing that well-rounded men develop the muscle between their ears as much as any other.
We want them to be either in training for the vocation they dream of, or actually working in their desired career.
We want them to be good teammates, in their footy team certainly, but also in any team they find themselves in – at work, or at home or in the community.
We want them to be both self-aware and self-confident, able to respect themselves and everyone else.
And we want to help them become wise and ethical decision makers.
In short, what we want for the young men who enter our program is what any good parent, guardian or teacher wants for the young people in their charge.
“The vision of our program is that when players leave our great game they are better men for having been part of Rugby League”
