Disability Rugby sessions start positively

1 year ago By Ryan Lewis

Ahead of the move to the IDS Paddock on the 28th March, Broncos disability rugby sessions have been going down well in local schools.

““Thanks to everyone involved, many young people learnt new skills and had great fun. It’s fantastic to see rugby league bringing people together to enjoy the sport, and I hope many will continue playing in the future”.” Ryan Lewis, Bury Broncos Chair

On February 16th 2017 our Broncos spent a full day with Casicare at Elms Bank special education school in Bury delivering tag rugby league, developing skills such passing, evasion and tagging, all delivered by trained staff.

The day went with huge success as we engaged over 40 young people with various mental and physical disabilities in tag rugby league.

These sessions will continue within schools in Bury, with training sessions in the evening also to be held by the Broncos at the IDS Paddock, Philips High School M45 7PH on Tuesday evenings from 6-7pm from 28th March. The sessions will be open for all those with Mental Health Needs who are at least secondary school age. For more information contact Mathew on 07740585531or email

Elms bank staff member Sarah stated “all our young people who participated in the day have had fun and learnt a great deal of skills relating to rugby league, the staff were fantastic during the day and engaged the young people throughout”. Matthew, Physical therapist at Casicare, was very pleased with how the day went, adding “the day really went with a massive success, with no issues and the staff that came along to coach the sessions did a fantastic job!”

Casicare have a young people’s semi-independent provision that accommodates 16-24 year olds who have mental health conditions or display complex or behavioural needs, and 4 other provisions dealing with mental health for adult and elderly care, nursing and complex needs.
