Coleg y Cymoedd and Ironmen to hold u17 trials

Coleg y Cymoedd and Ironmen to hold u17 trials

23rd February 2017, 10:42

South Wales Ironmen Rugby League club, in partnership with local college, Coleg y Cymoedd, still have a limited amount of spaces for their under 17s open training session and trial on Saturday 25th February at The Centre of Sporting Excellence, Ystrad Mynach from 10am-1pm.


There are still places available for the open day. If you would like to take part, please download here and email to mark jones - The age range for those wanting to participate are those born between 01/09/1999 and 31/08/2001.


The session will commence with a presentation from Coleg y Cymoedd staff who will outline the opportunities available at the college to be part of the South Wales Rugby League Academy, run by the college in partnership with South Wales Ironmen RL, and to study BTEC Level 1, 2 or 3 qualifications and/or A Levels alongside a rigid RFL Category 3 Accredited Rugby League programme.


Ironmen under 17s head coach  Dafydd Hellard says: "This programme is a great opportunity for anyone wanting to try out rugby league for the first time or develop as a player within a professional environment. The programme will be overseen by Level 2 qualified coaches alongside a strength and conditioning programme that is being led and run by ex-Wales and British and Irish Lion Lee Byrne.”


The Ironmen are working closely with local clubs, colleges and the Wales Rugby League National Governing Body to develop a sustainable player development pathway that will ensure the future success for all involved in the sport here in Wales.


The Ironmen are committed to developing the sport in Wales, we currently have a very young competitive reserve squad that competed last year with Super League opposition, international teams and ended the season with a very successful tour to Canada.


The next phase in this development is the creation of the under 17s programme. This will act as a springboard for aspiring rugby league players with the focus being on player development and talent identification. The players will be exposed to a high level of rugby with confirmed fixtures against Super League opposition, touring international teams and junior national champions in Siddal RL.


In addition to the programme players will have the opportunity to enrol into our partner college Coleg Y Cymoedd to further their studies and develop their game.


Mark Jones Head of Rugby League at Coleg Cymoedd says “The South Wales Ironmen under 17s pathway promises to deliver a professional, high standard programme which will bridge the gap between school and club Rugby League and the professional game. This is an excellent opportunity for players to improve their skill sets and progress in their Rugby League careers.”


South Wales Ironmen are one of only two professional Rugby League sides in Wales and compete in Kingstone Press League 1. The Coleg y Cymoedd side compete in the RFL’s National College Premier League.
