MINI LEAGUE: Under 6-Under 7 & Under 8-Under 9
Mini League is focused on meeting the needs of younger children and caters for boys and girls aged 5 - 8 years. The philosophy of Mini League centres on maximum involvement and encourages learning through play without the pressure of abiding to the strict laws of the adult game.
To be eligible to participate in Mini League a child must have attained the age of five before registering to a junior rugby league club.

MID LEAGUE: Under 9-Under 11 & MOD LEAGUE: Under 11-Under 12
Mid and Mod Leagues are focused on the 9-12 years age group for boys and girls, when the demands of adult rugby league is still too much, but the simpler Mini League is not challenging enough.
To promote involvement, enhance skill development and provide a fun and enjoyable experience for participants in a safe, non-competitive environment, the rules for these age groups have been modified.

JUNIORS: Under 13-Under 18
Junior competitions encourage players to build upon the fundamental skills learned during Mini, Mid and Mod Leagues. Competitions exist across Queensland from social to junior representative levels.
While games are played under the same rules as the adult game, for teams in Under 13 - Under 15 age groups, matches are also played under the National "Safeplay Code".

Senior rugby league clubs are located across Queensland offering open-age males and females the opportunity to compete at social to sub-elite levels.
With so many development programs, club and representative teams on offer, the opportunities are endless for senior rugby league players in Queensland.

Girls are able to play rugby league at a junior club in mixed gender teams up to the age of 12. From there, teenage girls can continue their participation in female-only teams in local league competitions.
Opportunities for women and girls to be involved in rugby league have increased dramatically in recent times with competitions existing across the state. As well as club competitions, there are a number of initiatives aiding in female player development.

Masters Rugby League provides an opportunity for players and officials to continue their involvement in the game in a safe and enjoyable way.
Like other age groups, games are played under modified rules to ensure players can compete in a safe environment.

The Queensland Rugby League prides itself on proving pathways for participants across the state and acknowledges the important contribution of the school pathway in developing Queensland's Rugby League athletes.
Rugby League is played in Queensland in more than 900 schools by 130,000 children. Whether its interschool competitions, gala days, come and try clinics, or school programs, there are endless opportunities for children to become actively engaged in rugby league.

Universities Rugby League Queensland (URLQ) facilitates the development of rugby league across Queensland Universities. The URLQ provides university students the opportunity to participate in rugby league through a mid-week premier competition involving clubs based in universities in South East Queensland.
Like other competitions in Queensland, Universities Rugby League also offers players a pathway to compete in representative football with an Australian Universities team competing in the Rugby League World Cup.
