The Gold Coast Titans Leagueability Program has kicked off for the 2022 season with a special Come and Try event held at Parkwood last week.
The Leagueability Program is for people with both intellectual and/or physical disabilities to play Rugby League.
The Come and Try Event welcomed 16 new players, the largest increase of new players for the Leagueability program since it’s started.
Last year, over 50 players across four different teams enjoyed regular training sessions and games at CBUS Super Stadium as the curtain raiser to NRL games.
General Manager of Community and Game Development Renee Cohen said she is excited to see the program grow in 2022.
“Last season was incredible for the program and the skills that each player developed over the season was incredible,” Ms Cohen said.
“The whole club is incredibly excited for the season to properly start again and see our players run back out at CBUS Super Stadium.
“Welcoming all of our new and returning players has been incredibly special and we can’t wait to see all of the great relationships grow between players, coaches, staff and community members throughout the season,” she said.
Players will train weekly over the next eight weeks before they play as the curtain raiser to the Titans v Panthers game at CBUS Super Stadium.
The Leagueability Program started in 2018, with players improving in leaps and bounds every year.
