The Queensland Rugby League (QRL) has this year partnered with Tidy Connect - the peak sports body solution of the Australian-based TidyHQ - to optimise its sports administration.

Volunteers at nearly 500 clubs and more than 20 leagues, along with QRL community rugby league staff, will benefit from the partnership, supporting more efficient processes that ensure participants get on the field each week.

QRL general manager of community rugby league, Adam Vanzanten, said the collaboration had tremendous potential to streamline procedures for the close to 20,000 volunteers who are lifeblood of rugby league.

"With Tidy Connect, we'll enhance operations across our organisation, from club-level to top-tier administration," Vanzanten said.

"It's strategically smart and promises a reduced administration load for our ever-evolving game.

"This initiative has been realised thanks to the collaboration and funding from the Queensland Government’s Active Industry Project Fund."

TidyHQ CEO and founder, Isaak Dury, said Tidy Connect's integrated processes provided remarkable utility for both operations and community engagement.

"We’re thrilled to collaborate with QRL. Our goal is to alleviate the administrative burden on volunteers by equipping them with tools that work seamlessly alongside their existing systems.

"This partnership is all about empowering clubs and administrators to focus on fostering a vibrant rugby league community."

Quilpie Magpies Rugby League Club president Kerri Vagg shared her enthusiasm for the integration, hailing the "single platform for the entire committee that keeps everything the club needs to run things smoothly".

"It is great for accountability for everyone running the club. We’re all full-time workers trying to volunteer for our club, and this makes it easier," Vagg said.

"My whole committee can know what is outstanding, and it doesn’t all rely on me."

Receiving robust support from the National Rugby League (NRL), this partnership is a significant stride for community sports.

NRL general manager of game development and education, James Hinchey, said: "Tidy Connect’s role in the evolution of the QRL sets an example for other sporting organisations".

"Our volunteers are the game's heartbeat, and in Tidy Connect, we see an opportunity to make the vital role they play in our sport more manageable and better supported," Hinchey said.

"We’re eager to see the outcomes of this partnership and their ripple effect on the sports community."

QRL’s exciting partnership with Tidy represents a significant milestone in sports management and governance, with this innovative sports technology to transform the way players, administrators, and volunteers engage with Queensland's most popular sport.
