Rugby League Academy is a well-established program for boys in Years 7 to 12, that aims to develop excellent rugby league players who positively contribute to their community. Our coaches are highly accredited and the school has two full size rugby league fields and a weights gym.
In years 7 to 10, students develop their rugby league skills during specialised practical sessions, as part of their weekly HPE classes. In years 11 and 12, students train during school sport and at after-school sessions, while completing a range of senior subjects that complement their post-school goals.
Our top teams in each year level participate in the prestigious 'Brisbane Broncos Schoolboy Challenge' while our second-tier teams participate in Struddy's Cup and the local secondary school competition to advance their skills. Players also participate in the Bayside School Sport competition against other local schools and, if successful, are given the chance to progress through to the greater Metropolitan Finals.
Rugby League Academy has a partnership with Wynnum Manly Seagulls club (Brisbane Broncos affiliated) which aims to develop young rugby league footballers in the East Brisbane and Bayside region. The Rugby League Academy as also partnered with our local clubs: Capalaba JRL, Carina JRLFC and Redlands JRL.
