What is League Stars Inspire?

What is League Stars Inspire?

The NRL is a powerful vehicle for inspiring positive change in our communities. Our aim is to unite communities to lead and inspire people to be the best they can be, by providing pathways and opportunities to live positive, respectful and healthy lives. 

There is close alignment between what children learn in school about health and physical education and what the game provides, both on and off the field. The NRL INSPIRE – respect, health & wellbeing and inclusion/diversity program aims to provide interactive learning experiences that inspire our young people.

The aim is to Inspire primary school-aged children to develop and apply the knowledge and understandings, skills, attitudes and values that are central to these three focus areas – using the great game of rugby league as both a background to and the vehicle for engaging learning experiences.

NRL road to regions 2020

This resource has been developed to support and guide those involved in the NRL to deliver to primary school-aged children important messages about attitudes and values and skills related to three key focus areas:

  • Respect: Respecting oneself, others and what it means to develop and maintain respectful relationships.
  • Health & Wellbeing: Developing and maintaining a healthy lifestyle, resilience and a positive mind and approach to life and its many and different challenges and opportunities.
  • Inclusion/Diversity: Having an appreciation of the qualities of others and a positive attitude towards difference.
