The female rugby programme is going from strength to strength with teams running at an under 12s, under 14s and under 16s level, with 2019 seeing the creation of the first ever Hull Kingston Rovers Women’s team.
We are always happy to accept new players to come down and see what all the fuss is about!
Launched in 2016, the club’s Female Hubs were introduced in partnership with Active Humber and the University of Hull as a chance to involve more young girls in the sport of rugby league with the opportunity to train and play regularly as part of a structured competition with a pathway of progression.
Proving to be a roaring success, the sessions run by the Hull KR Community Trust now regularly attract around 20-30 girls per age group every Monday and Thursday night, with the Women’s squad consisting of 30 or so players.
Our aim is to progress through the leagues with the Women’s team and ultimately ply our trade in the Women’s Super League
All girls between the ages of 11 and 16 are welcome to attend regardless of ability or previous experience – it’s all about having fun, staying active and making friends through playing sport.
Anybody interested is welcome to come down to a training session and watch what goes on without getting involved straight away if they wish.
For more information, please contact Ben Parker who runs the female rugby programme.
