Rugby League plays an important role in our communities and has a strong representation across all levels of our game throughout all of Australia. Across the whole game we have players who identify their country of birth (or that of parents or grandparents) in in over 144 different countries.
The 2019 NRL WA In League In Harmony Camp will provide opportunities for youth to develop social skills and essential Rugby League playing skills, and will be empowered to acknowledge, appreciate and celebrate the diversity among their peers and the wider community.
Important to note that there is no tackling in the program, we employ modified League Tag and NRL Touch Football.
The In League In Harmony program’s delivery method is a non-formal educational approach, using Rugby League skills sessions tailored for both those new to the game and the experienced, to not only teach participants the fundamental skills of Rugby League but also promote key messages such as:
- Inclusion and Positive Communication
- Teamwork and Leadership
- Courage and Respect
The Camp will consist of various Social Cohesion Workshops and Rugby League Skills Training Sessions that aim to tackle issues such as racism, gender inequality, bullying and more.
The Camp will then finish with the celebratory In League In Harmony “Unite Gala Day” at Gloucester Park to celebrate the newly – acquired knowledge and skills participants have gained from the 2019 NRL WA In League In Harmony Camp.
Certain participants that showcase positive attitudes and leadership qualities throughout the camp will also be given the opportunity to be in the NRLWA’s Youth Advocate Program, a program that empowers youth to create a positive impact in their communities. These certain individuals will be involved in supporting the delivery of the NRL WA’s 2019 Harmony Cup in December.
