THE registration window for the 2022 England Talent Pathway (ETP) programme, run by the Bradford Bulls Foundation, is open.

It is the belief of the Rugby Football League Performance Department that identification pre-puberty of players who may progress to the highest level is flawed, therefore every young player from 12 years old should receive high-quality coaching as they all are potentially on the ‘England Talent Pathway’.

England Talent Pathway is an inclusive programme and the first step of the England Player Pathway.

The programme is delivered through club foundations, community clubs, professional clubs and schools.

The “scheme of work’ is a programme of coach education, based around 24 blocked coaching sessions that can be used and adapted to meet the needs of young players at any stage, providing holistic development.

All Government and RFL Covid guidelines will be adhered to, including temperature checks on arrival and sanitisation of equipment at regular intervals.

Sessions will take place at for the following age groups:


U12s (Yr 7)

U13s (Yr 8)

U14s (Yr 9)

Over 14s programme (Yrs 10 and 11)
