York City Knights Foundation

Huntington & New Earswick, York


York City Knights Disability Rugby League Club :
Super League (Europe) and the Rugby Football League (RFL) have partnered with the national social care charity Community Integrated Care to form a ground-breaking inclusive sports programme for people with learning disabilities and autism.

The ‘Community Integrated Care Learning Disability Super League’ will give people with learning disabilities the opportunity to play an adapted version of Rugby League, in a series of high-profile festivals and events.
The programme aims to promote the development of skills, confidence and positive experiences for people with learning disabilities, and make a major statement about social inclusion.

This world-first initiative is the first ever example of a professional sports league sharing its brand with a learning disability sports programme.

York City Knights Disability Rugby League Club starts on Saturday 27th April 10-12noon at YSJ Haxby Road.
No need to book just turn up on the day.
