Great news for Women’s and Girls Rugby League!
Over the past 3 years, our Rugby League team have had a focus on Women’s and Girls Rugby League across the town, which has seen the development of the Warrington Wolves Women’s team, with promotion from the Championship into Super League alongside the growth of Girls Rugby League in the area, leading to Warrington having one of the highest numbers of girls accessing rugby league in the Country.
We have been able to establish this role and continue the growth of Women’s and girls’ sport in the town, through the support of the RFL and Sport England Winter Survival Fund, which minimised the negative impact of COVID on our program and has allowed to continue to establish a vital resource to further enhance the impact across the town.
We will achieve this through the promotion of one of our own members of staff, Ryan Cartledge who will start his role as Women’s and Girls Rugby League Development officer. This is an exciting role which will enable us to carry on the development and growth of the Women’s and Girls game at all levels across the Warrington area.
Ryan’s journey with us started as a volunteer coach, progressing to a casual coaching role before he was appointed as full time coach in our Foundation rugby league team looking after our Secondary Schools where he has continued to develop a very strong High Schools rugby league program across the town, in particular his work with Girls High School rugby league, where he engaged 800 girls in rugby league in the last 18 months alone. This is now an incredible opportunity for him to further establish the Women’s and Girls game in the area.
We would like to congratulate Ryan on his promotion and we are looking forward to seeing how his area of work progresses over the coming years. For any more information on Women’s and Girls rugby league please get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org
