Canberra Region Wheelchair Rugby League (CRWRL) have held a successful gala day for four local high schools on Tuesday at Belconnen Stadium.
The Gala Day, which was held over two sessions, introduced students to the all-inclusive game of wheelchair rugby league through a series of exercises and games before finishing with a game between the schools.
Students were taken through drills by CRWRL representative player Chris O’Brien, who was able to offer tips and advice for the students.
The morning session was attended by Lyneham High School (year 9) and Alfred Deakin High School (years 9 & 10).
The students picked up the rules of the game quite quickly and were very impressive in some of the skills they displayed during the morning session.
The afternoon session was attended by Harrison School (year 8) and Campbell High School (year 10).
Both schools again were very impressive in their level of engagement and their involvement in the session, with some of the students displaying some potential in the game of wheelchair rugby league.
The Gala Day was held to try and promote the game of Wheelchair Rugby League and aligns with the goals and visions of the CRWRL to grow the game of wheelchair rugby league in Canberra and surrounding districts.
