The Leeds Rhinos community development team are travelling to the West coast of Ireland on Thursday for a long weekend trip prior to the start of the season. Amongst general team building events and preparation for the start of the engage Super XIII season, the community team will work alongside the Irish Students Rugby League team, Amateur Rugby League Clubs and at the Tralee Institute of Technology. The trip will hope to improve relations with Rugby League Ireland by making scheduled visits to the department and build relations established from the Leeds Rhinos squad during last years pre season training. A busy schedule over the six days is highlighted by the invitation to visit the Tralee Institute of Technology, a college in the town of Tralee where the college has embraced our visit by cancelling the day’s lessons and handing the day over to the community team. Over 200 students on Sports Development Courses will be given lectures on Women in Rugby, Grassroots development in the community, Data Collection and Management and Performance Management. The days workshops will end with the community teams renowned ‘Primary School Assembly’ to highlight the effectiveness of the Leeds Rhinos Mascot – Ronnie – and all students will be invited to take part in practical coaching sessions to finish the day on a fun note! The visit will hope to develop the work done by the Rhinos first team squad who took their pre-season training camp to Dublin last year and future aspirations the club has with the Irish community and continue to build on the growth of local amateur rugby league teams in both England and Ireland.
