Secondary Schools

Secondary schools are where the Sheffield Eagles community team really focus on introducing children to the full contact version of the game. All Coaches are qualified and will introduce tackle techniques and practices safely. Secondary school competitions are full contact games but this can be modified for female participation, for example, TAG or TOUCH Rugby League.

Sheffield Eagles and the ‘INCLUDE’ Foundation - Secondary School Offer

Since the Eagles Community department started to deliver in Primary Schools we have always offered schools coaching for free as we have been able to secure external funding to assist with the cost.

Sadly, at the end of March 2013 the Eagles along with other rugby league clubs had all central funding cut and we now have to charge a small fee for the delivery we provide within secondary schools.

We would like to continue our positive relationship and build the future of the game and we see the primaries as an integral part of developing the game locally.

Our offer consists of:

A Half term of sessions (agreement between school and community department) With a focus on Year 7, 8 and 9

  • Competitions
  • Schools Coaching Matrix
  • DVD Resources x2 (Introduction to Rugby League / Coaching DVD)
  • Ticket offers
  • 2 x CPD opportunities (for 2 teachers)
  • School to Club links
  • Player pathway link


We can also offer you the unique opportunity of:

  • Access to the Sheffield Eagles First team players
  • Sheffield Eagles Ticketing offers, Junior Season Ticket offer


This will cost your school £300 for one unit of work, your school can look to buy more than one block of coaching for different year groups. We will however look to prioritise Year 7, 8 and 9 classes.

Extra sessions in this package would cost £25p/h within curriculum time

Extra places on CPD courses would cost £40 per delegate

Sheffield Eagles are also looking to increase the number of after school club opportunities we offer to secondary schools and we can offer After Schools Clubs at £25 per hour.

This is for up to and including 16 participants and if you purchase 5 after school sessions you’ll get the 6th one free. If you have more than 16 participants at a cost of £20 per hour**

If there is anything else your school would like to work with us on please do not hesitate to contact us and we will look to accommodate your request and work out a cost effective solution.

For any other information please contact Nick Gill on 0787 5754648 or

**Larger groups can be catered for without a second coach if there is an appropriate member of school staff available to assist the session.

Competition Prices:

To enter a one off competition the cost would be £20

If you plan to enter more than 3 competitions the cost for competition entry will be £50.
