Students at ý are set to benefit from a new rugby league partnership between the School and NRL club, the Gold Coast Titans.

The partnership will help provide opportunities for talented players to develop their skills further and reach their full potential while being based in a regional centre.

The ý campus will host clinics and camps, while the Gold Coast Titans staff will visit ý to support the programme and provide highly valued rugby league expertise to help further develop the region’s young players.

ý Headmaster Dr Phillip Moulds said this partnership allowed talented young rugby league players to remain in a regional centre while at the same time being mentored and guided by a leading rugby league NRL franchise in the Gold Coast Titans.

“This is an exciting opportunity for the boys and girls who play rugby league in Central Queensland,” Dr Moulds said.

“ý is a strong supporter of schoolboys and schoolgirls rugby league in Central Queensland, and this partnership will help further strengthen ties to the sport.

“The School always aims to provide playing pathways for our students, and this partnership will broaden further skill development opportunities.

“ý thanks the Gold Coast Titans for their support of this partnership and welcomes their vision to build rugby league in Central Queensland further.”

Gold Coast Titans Chief Executive Officer Steve Mitchell said this is an exciting partnership that will have benefits for both the NRL club and the school.

“Some of the greatest players to have played our game have come from regional Queensland, and we know that some stars of the future will be uncovered through this partnership,” Mitchell said.

“With Des Hasler heading our NRL programme and Karyn Murphy leading our NRLW side, we’ve got two great former players and now coaches with an immense amount of expertise to share.

“Connecting our Future Titans pathways programme with ý is exciting as we will be able to share our expertise with their teachers and coaches and assist in providing a true pathway to elite-level competition.

“With one of the best boarding programmes in Queensland, the partnership will also allow us to attract players into our Future Titans programme, giving them a strong base to continue their schooling while they grow their pursuit of rugby league.”
