Bundaberg prepare for season
Bundaberg and the Northern Wide Bay are set for great rugby league seasons with approximately 40 club executives attending this year’s Bundaberg Education Day.
They were joined by 50 other club volunteers who were attending Coaching and Sports Trainer courses.
These were held in the Bundaberg Rugby League clubhouse at the home of the “greatest game of all”, Salter Oval recently.
Club executive attendees were presented with sessions on Sports Community’s ‘Club Spot’, club goal setting, the paper trail, funding applications, accreditation requirements and the match review, judiciary and disciplinary process.
Participants provided great feedback from these informative sessions with planning already underway for a new concept next season.
Level 1 Sports Trainer attendees were fortunate to have current QAS and QRL Under 18s physio Ben Heidenrich present their course, sharing valuable knowledge to the new and upcoming sports trainers.
Local NRL Game Development Officer Dwayne McKay presented a well-informed coaching course for new coaches across the Northern Wide Bay and was impressed with the future coaches across the area.

The combined Bundaberg Junior Rugby League and Rugby League Fraser Coast internationals competition is due to commence on Saturday, March 25 with fixtures at Across the Waves Sportsgrounds.
