Hull FC have become the latest side to launch a Learning Disability Rugby League side.
They will enter the Community Integrated Care Learning Disability Super League and play in festivals up and down the country.
The point of LDRL is inclusion and enjoyment. The game itself is a mixture between the rules of tag rugby league and touch rugby league.
The newly formed Hull FC LDRL team is entirely inclusive and welcomes all players, regardless of skill or experience. Mark Adams, CEO of Community Integrated Care, said: “We are thrilled that Hull FC have signed up to be part of the 2020 Community Integrated Care Learning Disability Super League season.
“Hull FC are one of Rugby League’s most iconic clubs and the work of their Charitable Foundation is highly respected within the sport, so they will be an incredible addition to this programme.”
Richard Tate, Head of Programmes for Hull FC Community Foundation, added: “We are really looking forward to being part of the LDRL family in 2020. LDRL is a very rewarding concept for both the players and the staff involved.
“Through this programme and our great community coaches, Brad Sugden & Matty Kirby, we will be able to give participants of all abilities the skills and confidence to play the game of Rugby League, as well as make new friends and have the chance to represent Hull FC with pride.”
