Since 2012, MacKillop has been the premier location to play school based Rugby League in the Northern Territoty. MacKillop is well known for both its successful School Boy and School Girl squads, fielding teams in every age division.
MacKillop also offers players the opportunity to study the game of Rugby League through curriculum offerings via the Saints Rugby League Academies available to students from Year 7 to Year 10. Enrolment in the Saints Rugby League Academy allows students to broaden their knowledge of the game and improve their skills under the tutelage of fully qualified, highly experienced and even Territory level coaches. Furthermore, enrolment in our Academies allows students the opportunity to achieve a number of nationally recognised qualifications, most notably the NRL Referee Certificate, LeagueSafe and Coaches Certificates.
A number of playing opportunities in both local and interstate competitions are on offer to our players. MacKillop participates in PARRS competitions, NRLNT Gala Days, a number of inter-school competitions and the Territory wide Eels Cup of which our Schoolgirls side were 2019 Territory Champions.
2020 will bring the opportunity for our Year 9 to Year 11 Boys players to embark on a Townsville tour to Kirwin High School, to strengthen inter-school Rugby League relationships and experience what it is like to be involved in Australia’s number one Schools Rugby League programme.
With all that is on offer, join the NT’s premier school-based Rugby League Programme today!
