The Bradford Bulls Foundation is working hard to make sure that every child in their home city can participate in or enjoy rugby league in some way.
There are a number of different initiatives underway in 2017 to help achieve this laudable goal.
“We aspire to make a positive difference in the Bradford community,” Bulls Foundation’s Chief Executive Mark Winder said.
“We foster confidence, self-expression and heightened horizons in innovative, exciting ways, working with over 40,000 people per year.
“We ensure that our community programme is varied to offer opportunities for all – regardless of age, gender, ethnicity or disability.
“We also strongly adhere to our mantra of ‘creating opportunities and nurturing potential’ – our work is centred around increasing participation in sport and physical activity.
“Our ultimate aim is to provide every schoolchild in the Bradford district with the opportunity to play, participate and consume rugby league.
“The Sky Try project, which is delivered in primary and secondary schools, helps to support this aim, and over the last two years has supported grassroots participation.
“We also engage the community through initiatives including Junior Bulls Academy, England Talent Pathway, Wheelchair Rugby League and activity camps.”
The England Talent Pathway programme is underway in the city, as well as Sky Try, primary rugby league workshops and fun rugby sessions at local sports centres.
