The registration links have just gone live for players, coaches, and volunteers to register on LeagueNet.

Clubs are reminded that it is the responsibility of the player (or player’s parent/guardian if under 18) to complete the registration process and not the club on their behalf. This is particularly important due to the current Coronavirus regulations as there is an opt-in agreement that must reviewed and agreed to as part of the return to play process.  If this is not followed the Club could find themselves in breach of the RFL Operational Rules and will be found guilty of misconduct.   

Groundsman – Maintenance Work

We have been advised that volunteers can carry out essential maintenance work to sports pitches/ playing fields as you can leave home to provide voluntary or charitable services, providing the necessary Covid Risk assessments have been carried out and social distancing is maintained.

Virtual RL

The RFL’s ‘Virtual RL’ online programme is here to help players prepare for the 2021 season.   

#VirtualRL offers a wide range of skills, fitness and lifestyle activities linking to a weekly ‘Gameday Challenge’. It builds on the popular #SkillToPlay initiative, which during the first Lockdown showcased some of the game’s finest players and helped children and young people to emulate the skills of their heroes.

#VirtualRL is freely available here.
