UCLan are offering scholarships of £4,000 for successful applicants to a scheme which combines studying while playing Rugby League at an elite level.
UCLan Rangers Rugby League Club has been chosen as a Performance Sport at the University with financial support being committed to ensure the team reaches the Super 6’s, the pinnacle of Student Rugby League/BUCS, within the next three years.
The team trains twice a week and competes on Wednesday afternoons in the BUCS league. Leading the team will be Andy Procter - a UKCC endorsed level 4 coach who has had coaching and playing experience at the professional level and is currently a Coach Educator for the RFL.
Our £12M sports complex has a state-of-the-art strength and conditioning suite, 400m running track, grass and astroturf pitches.
The team also receives strength and conditioning programmes, nutritional and lifestyle advice, physiotherapy support and performance analysis to ensure all players are assessed, monitored and developed according to their specific needs.
The team has a close knit group of students who organise excellent social events each week including a foreign tour at the end of the year. Many of the players have representative honours with the North West regional and International teams, so those opportunities will be open to successful candidates.
To supplement this we offer a large range of sport related courses you could study or you could choose a course to suite your particular needs here.
For further information and application forms please email Andy Procter or call on: 07790 437057.
