Little Leprechauns is our program for introducing 3 to 5 year olds to rugby league through skill-based, non-contact activities and training drills. The program runs over 5 x one hour sessions.
Little Leprechauns is based on the philosophy of learning through play. As well as assisting with developing hand-eye coordination and motor skills, the program promotes physical activity in a fun and interactive environment. Children or all skills and abilities are welcome.
Due to the disrupted start to the 2021 season, the decision has been made to postpone the Little Leprechauns program until later in the season, possibly until term 3.
Our apologies for any disappointment, but we want to ensure that we can give the program our full attention to ensure it is fun and rewarding for the little ones that participate.
We are just working out the new dates now and will provide an update soon.
The participation cost for our 2021 Little Leprechaun program is $60, payable at the time of booking.
Each participant will receive a Little Leprechaun t-shirt, medallion and photo as part of the program. Children also receive a pack including a backpack, football and water bottle.
Any child aged 3 years or over as at 10 May 2021 and not turning 6 years on or before 7 June 2021 can participate in Little Leprechauns. No previous rugby league experience in necessary.
