Stanwell Junior Development Team Named

Today the CQ NRL Bid named the Inaugural Stanwell Junior Development Team. 20 players were identified from all across the region to be part the exciting Stanwell Junior Development Program.

The Staff for the U/13s team was also announced with former NRL stars Sid Domic and Justin Loomans joining forces with Head Coach Lionel Harbin and Assistant Coach Rod Dahl.

The Stanwell Junior Development Program focuses on the holistic development of the junior rugby league player through strength & conditioning training, rugby league skills and knowledge development and player welfare education.

CQ NRL Bid Business & Community Development Manager Walson Carlos said that parents and players had been notified last week   “Lionel Harbin (Coach) spoke with the parents and the excitement level from both the parents and players is very high. We have put together an outstanding staff for this team and I know the players will certainly get a lot out of the Program. ”

The Program will commence with a camp in Yeppoon at the end of the school holidays. Throughout October the team will travel to Brisbane and the Gold Coast playing games against Wavell SHS and Keebra Park SHS and Townsville to play games against Ignatius Park College and Kirwin SHS.
