League for Life programs in schools around PNG has taken rugby league up another notch.
Up to 80 schools around the country will undergo the Australian NRL Level 1 coaching course together with players of the SP PNG Hunters team.
The program aims to grow the game of league in PNG, while installing respect for one and all at all levels.
The coaching course was initiated with the SP PNG Hunters at Bomana Police College recently.
The players took time out from their busy schedules to be part of the program.
NRL’s In-country General Manager Mark Mom said the course gives an opportunity for players and staff to be role models in building league and improving the code throughout PNG.
He said the goal is to ensure that PNG children are vested with right skills and knowledge of the game.
Through the PNGRFL Team Kumul Program, accreditation programs will be rolled out to Digicel Cup Coaches, trainers and players as well.
Over 50,000 students are targeted and will be funded by the Australian Government for the next 3 years.
The course will be rolled out by NRL Technical Officers.
