RISE (13-15 years)

The RISE program is the pathway beyond community rugby league for aspiring players and coaches.

Queensland Rugby League will implement the RISE player development program across Queensland in partnership with the NRL, providing the state with an aligned and evidenced based approach to developing lifelong participants of rugby league, not to mention the Intrust Super Cup, BHP Premiership, NRL and Maroons players of the future.

Crucially, RISE programs across Queensland will be designed to provide more players than previous pathways structures with access to coaching and knowledge to support their development.

Increasing the number of players who are eligible for the program is aligned to evidence that recommends avoiding the selection of small groups of players during early teenage years as often selection is biased towards players who physically mature ahead of other participants of the same age.

Program outline

Participants between the ages of 13 and 15 will have access to five face-to-face training sessions and competitive fixtures. Additional online resources and accreditations are available to all players.

Each session will focus on three key areas of player development

  • Technical and tactical skill development – Aimed at developing players' core skills and decision-making ability
  • Physical development – Players will learn about safe and effective techniques to enhance their physical capability including strength, speed and endurance
  • Socio-emotional development – Under the guidance of professionals from Griffith University and the Menzies institute, players will develop tools to help them deal with life’s challenges
