Rugby League

At Wakefield Trinity, we want to provide a fun and engaging environment to introduce children at primary school to the sport of Rugby League as well as continuing the development of young, up-and-coming players laced throughout our community clubs.

Since our introduction in 2006, we have placed a big emphasis on improving Rugby League participation in Wakefield, hosting numerous open-access development and scholarship camps throughout the average year.

As we get into the middle of 2022, we strive to continue the great work already done in the past, laying the foundations for participants to reach the next level of the game, concentrating on fundamental movement skills, with an emphasis on teamwork and personal development.

Trinity DNA (Talent Development Camps)

Sessions are led by our highly qualified and experienced development team and focus on both fundamental game-related and technical skills, as well as players’ physical and mental development. The programme provides excellent development opportunities for both local and national junior Rugby League players, serving as an entry point to the club’s scholarship and alternate pathway systems.

A high number of existing Wakefield Trinity talent has travelled through the pathway in recent years, including the likes of successful graduates Sam Eseh, Josh Philips and Super League debutant, Harry Bowes.
