Shaw Cross Sharks ARLFC are pleased to confirm that four of our current U16’s girls squad have been selected for the RFL Diploma in Sports Excellence (DiSE). Mya Taylor, Lydia Fawkes, Bella Murray and Courtney Marsh have been selected for the DiSE amongst great competition for the places.
DiSE is another step in the England Performance Pathway and provides a wider group of players who have realistic potential to be high achievers in their sport with the benefit of being on the pathway and learning the knowledge of National Coaching staff. The two-year programme also has an educational aspect as players complete a portfolio of work in areas such as psychology, strength & conditioning, nutrition and lifestyle among other things.
Andrew Fawkes head coach of the U16’s “On behalf of the coaching group in the girls u16’s I want to congratulate these talented players on their well deserved selection on this England Pathway. We’re really pleased that our club can build on the success of Jess Harrap being selected on the programme and look forward to seeing shaw cross players wearing the England jersey in future World Cups”
Wayne Stead Director of Coaching added further. “This is amazing recognition for firstly the players but also for the great work and commitment all the coaches provide on a voluntary basis at Shaw Cross Sharks ARLFC. Girls rugby league is one of the fasting growing sports in the UK currently and as a club we are seeing the benefits of this and we support this remarkable growth in the game. This coming season we are running teams at U13’s, U14’s and U16’s and are creating an Open Age side.”
