NRL All Star’s Women’s Final Pathways Camp

The final All Stars Women’s Pathway camp was held during the week of 13th – 17th January. This pathways camp was the final camp held before the announcement of the 2020 representative team.

A group of 36 women participated in the camp and were put through a number of fitness and skills tests with each candidate hoping to advance through and experience the opportunity of representing their culture through the sport of rugby league.

Indigenous Women’s All Stars selector, Dean Widders said the camp provided an opportunity to bring the squad together with plenty of time to work on combinations and camaraderie before the next instalment of the All Stars on the Gold Coast in February 2020.

“We’re fortunate to have some incredible athletes across our game and the current crop of female Indigenous players is the best I’ve seen in my time,” Mr Widders said. 

“It’s a really exciting time for our game and for our community and I’m so proud to support this group of talented women as they showcase the very best of rugby league on and off the field.”

This camp coincided with the announcement that our long-standing partnership with the NRL has provided an opportunity for KARI Foundation to sponsor the Women’s Pathways Program.

“KARI Foundation has a commitment to promoting and driving awareness of culture to the wider community. The Indigenous All Stars provides a platform to not only promote culture but also continue to increase the opportunities for our youth especially young women to participate in elite pathways,” said KARI Foundation CEO Casey Ralph.

The selected group of players will represent the Indigenous community at the All Stars match, to be played on 22nd February 2020 at Cbus Stadium on the Gold Coast.
