Rugby League

The STACC Rugby League Program is designed to not only improve the skills associated with Rugby League, but to educate the young men of the program about what it takes to be a contributing person in our community.

Throughout the program, students will engage in activities that take them out of their comfort zone, both on and off the field. The program runs from the beginning of Term 1 until the end of Term 3 and involves various opportunities for experiences against local school teams in various formats.

  • Teaching advanced skills
  • Strength and Conditioning
  • Teaching athletes about the importance of preparation for training, games, school, dieting, etc.
