Indigenous Youth Elite Pathways Camp

Wests Tigers in partnership with KARI will bring Indigenous Rugby League players from rural New South Wales to Sydney for a seven-day camp. While in Sydney young players will spend time with Wests Tigers football Staff and players undertaking extensive training to get an understanding of what it takes to succeed as a professional player both on and off the field. As well as educating the youth on their culture and what it takes to be a leader.

Get Out, Get Deadly Rugby League Program

Partnering alongside Sydney Region Aboriginal Corporation (SRAC), Wests Tigers deliver a rugby league session with the Indigenous youth in Cobham Juvenile Justice Centre once a month. During this time, the Rugby League session aims to promote physical activity and healthy eating for youth to lead a positive and healthy lifestyle.
