NRL Community Rugby League Club of the Year

The NRL Community Rugby League Club of the Year will be presented to a Rugby League Club that has enhanced participation and enjoyment of Rugby League within their club. The club is recognised as an integral part of their community going above and beyond to make a positive impact in their community through Rugby League.

2020 Winner - Lithgow Bears 

Grassroots Club of the Year, the Lithgow Bears, became one of the saviours of the region during the summer bushfire crisis, donating their dressing rooms for the use of showers for those who lost homes. Their grounds became makeshift refuge areas for residents, pets and wildlife as fires destroyed the region.

Bears participants also helped fight fires and rebuild the community after the bushfires were extinguished. Despite the bushfires and COVID-19 the club registered 50 male and female teams in the Midwest Cup Competitions.
