The Junior Rovers Academy is at children of all abilities, aged between six and eleven, male and female.
The Academy's core focus will be to introduce new players to the sport while developing the skills of current junior players, through our excellent coaching team - which includes a host of first-team Rovers players!
The age four to five session starts at 5:30pm (until 6.00pm) and the evenings are based on fun and enjoyment for the children as well as learning some key fundamental skills such as balancing and catching.
Our next session starts at 6:00pm (until 6.45pm), for children aged six to eight, and, finally, 6.45pm (until 7.30pm) for children aged from nine to eleven.
There are no requirements to join the Academy and no experience in the sport is required.
This is an opportunity for children to learn new skills, meet new people and make new friends!
We would like to welcome new participants to these session and your first session will be FREE then ONLY £2.00 per session thereafter. Please note places are limited, so hurry in order to avoid disappointment.
The Featherstone Rovers Ambassadors Scheme is a FREE of charge initiative for any local community club or voluntary organisation.

EMBED THE PATHWAY
Designed and endorsed by the Rugby Football League, the game’s governing body, ‘Embed the Pathway’ aims to increase the number of quality rugby league players aged between 12 and 14 by providing them a pathway from amateur rugby to Super League and beyond - through the support and development of school teachers and community coaches.
The programme brings coach education, inclusive player profiling and professional coaching sessions into a unique scheme to develop a higher number of quality young players. This is achieved by enabling all players who have access to the sport through their school or community club to connect with the program.
PLAY TOUCH RUGBY LEAGUE
Touch Rugby League is a fast, skilful and action packed team sport, played in a fun and social atmosphere, without any of the tackling you see in a traditional game of Rugby League.
Touch Rugby League provides a great way to get fit and active, burning calories, building muscle tone and be part of a team.
