NRL in-Country Manager Ema Levaci says women’s engagement in sports is an area they’ve identified is in need of a major boost and more attention.

From here on, Levaci says they only hope they can inspire and motivate the next generation to take up the courage to attend future Rugby League events, workshops, and even local competitions.

The theme for the 2-day workshop is “Power for Change” with agenda topics covering policies protecting women, children & vulnerable people in rugby league, and 2022 women’s activities.
