Sky Try

Community Trust

Sky Try is a ground breaking new partnership initiative between the RFL and Sky and is the biggest ever programme of Rugby League opportunities in schools.
Sky Try is helping more children and young people have fun, get active, grow in confidence and enjoy Rugby League.
We at Hull Kingston Rovers Community Trust are pleased to be able to announce a new programme of rugby league coaching delivery which through the support of Sky Try we are offering to schools across Hull and the East Riding.


Sky Try Primary School Programme

In our Primary School Rugby Sessions we will deliver a fun and enjoyable experience for your pupils and staff, promoting lifelong involvement in sport and physical activity whilst championing the importance of health and well-being.
During our time with your school we will provide professional development for staff as well as engaging your pupils with a positive experience in team work, building self-esteem and confidence.
Hull Kingston Rovers Community Trust will provide highly qualified coaches to deliver each aspect of the program. Each skill will be delivered to meet the pupils’ physical capability whilst we will also deliver numeracy and literacy skills as part of the session.
The program will run for 5 weeks in total and will coach the core skills of rugby league. The main areas covered being:
• Movement
• Grip
• Carry
• Pass
• Catch

The final week of the programme will be an opportunity to meet Rufus the Robin, first team squad members (subject to availability) and a certificate presentation.
To finish the term, all schools involved in the coaching will be invited to a festival of primary rugby league (touch rugby) hosted at  Lightstream Stadium.
As add-ons to our delivery with the children, we will also be offering CPD for the teachers to enable them to continue delivering rugby league within the school once our sessions have finished.
If you would like to know more or to book a session please contact Ben Parker at ben.parker@hullkr.co.uk


Sky Try Embed the Pathway Secondary School Programme

We would like to introduce you to our Embed the Pathway programme in Secondary Schools.
The main aims are of this programme are to increase the opportunities to play rugby league in secondary schools, in addition to pupils attending Development Access Days to increase their skill level and enable talented players to access the Talent Pathway.
Embed the Pathway is funded through Sky Try which means we are able to deliver rugby league into your school free of charge for age groups 7,8,9. We will deliver for 6 weeks with which age group you choose for the term leading to them participating in a rugby league festival.
The 6 weeks delivery will consist of:
• Movement
• Grip & Carry
• Catch & Pass
• Decision Making
• Tackle Technique
• Game Related Scenarios

On the back of the above sessions we will be running a Rugby League 9s tournament throughout the year as a competition against other schools in the Hull and East Riding area.


Development Days (Players)

Targeted ages 12-14, years 7, 8 and 9.
Development days will be held at your school or KC Lightstream Stadium for players coming from different schools who have taken part in our Embed the Pathway programme. The reason behind this is to develop the players from your school to eventually sign for a Community Club and continue their development from school level to community club level.


Development Days (Staff)

Hull KR will be hosting a CPD for secondary school teachers providing the knowledge on Sky Try Embed the Pathway programme. We will provide your school with resources and regular contact with PE staff and rugby coaches. This will enable your school to be an Accredited England Pathway School.


Sky Try Touch Rugby

This is a 6 week touch workout project aimed at increasing the number of girls participating at Key Stage 3 and 4 (years 12 – 15) benefiting from an extraordinary participant experience.
We will deliver coaching to girls who are interested in developing the skills as well as increasing their levels of fitness.
As part of this programme we will be providing an opportunity for a girls only  Play Touch tournament.
