September Selection Process Begins…
Tuesday April 18th - 12pm to 2pm at Trinity Academy, Halifax |
The selection process for our 2017-18 intake begins at our next training event - Trinity Academy, Tuesday 18th April, 12pm with a 2pm finish.
Due to the number of applicants we receive, there will be limited places available on our Academy from September 2017 onwards. This event is the first part of our selection for the squad.
Book your place on the session to give yourself the best opportunity to be accepted onto our programme in September.
In only our second year we have become the number one Rugby League College Academy in Yorkshire with a number of players moving into professional clubs including Leeds Rhinos, Castleford Tigers, Keighley Cougars and Halifax RLFC.
It is not just the Rugby that is excelling, a number of our student athletes will move on to study various degrees on completion of their 2nd year of studies, it no wonder why we are receiving applications from far and wide.
At the time of writing we are up at the top of the National Premier Division fighting for 1st place and our 2nd team recently beat Calderdale College’s Rugby Academy 54-0. All evidence that for players who are serious about their Rugby, we are the Academy to apply for.
We make no secret that players who join Halifax ERA are put into a proper full-time training environment and need certain qualities to be able to succeed in our system. This is the reason we have decided to limit places and put a selection process in place.
For those who aren’t ready yet or are looking for something not as ‘full on’ we will point you in the direction of the local colleges in the confidence that no young person is missing out on the opportunity to play Rugby League.
If you want to be one of the 15 new recruits you need to:
– Read our website carefully, in particular the education pages so that you understand the requirements. High standards and commitment to study are key to our student athletes progression.
– Read this information carefully and book yourself onto the training day on the 18th.
– If you or your parent have any questions or queries please give one of the team a call.
