It's almost 12 months since the 'Titans Together' was launched, with the aim to Care, Include, Unite and Inspire.
As we approach the anniversary of 'Titans Together' (February 4, 2021), we're highlighting the work done across the four pillars of the Gold Coast Titans foundation.
One area which 'Titans Together' focusses on is driving participation in rugby league.
The Gold Coast Titans are committed to working with junior rugby league clubs and schools across our catchment to build a community of young people who are dedicated to rugby league, sportsmanship, teamwork and fun.
The Club was born to give junior players from the Gold Coast and Norther Rivers region a pathway to the NRL without leaving the support networks of family and friends.
The Titans School Boy competition was originally established to provide students in year 11 & 12 from schools with less rugby league experience the opportunity to compete in a fun and safe way. The competition has now expanded to include all senior year levels with inclusion of some of the best rugby league schools from across South East Queensland.
The Karyn Murphy Cup competition gives school-aged females the opportunity to participate in a nine-a-side format played under the NRL Safe Play Code.
With representative under 16 and under 19 teams competing against the junior sides of other NRL clubs, the Titans are committed to establishing a clear female player pathway with representative opportunities.
Aside from the on-field opportunities and competitions, Titans Together also works to connect current and past players with junior and grassroots clubs across our catchment.
The Junior Rugby League Club Ambassador Program offers the chance for our NRL players to return to the grassroots level and assist in promoting club sign on, attending training sessions and presentations.
