Monarch is proud to partner with NSW Rugby League for its Blues Tag Competition. Monarch Blues Tag is an exciting new form of Rugby League, a non-contact competition for juniors and open age groups for 2019 NSWRL season.
Moreover, the Monarch Blues Tag competitions will cater for boys and girls of all ages – from the Under-6s right through to the open-aged competitions – with a targeted focus on developing the skills of players aged 11-to-17 years of age. The competition will be running in line with the NSWRL Junior Rugby League season, and on days which avoid fixtures clashing with traditional tackle formats.
Furthermore, children will be taught the fundamental skills of the game including passing, catching, kicking and playing the ball without the pressure of having to tackle.
“We’re proud to be partnering with the NSWRL in particular as a sponsor for the new Blues Tag Program,” said ABC Marketing Manager Michelle Wee.
“At Monarch, we believe in supporting the community and providing education on all aspects to help our future generations grow.
NSWRL Head of Commercial Jodie Cross praised Monarch for throwing their support behind the latest grassroots initiative from the NSWRL. “It’s exciting to have Monarch on board for Blues Tag for the 2019 season,” Cross said. “Blues Tag is a fun and friendly way for kids and adults to enjoy the game of Rugby League and I’m confident the concept will be a success. “It’s great to see Monarch make an investment in a grassroots initiative at a time when the game is enjoying strong growth in participation numbers across NSW.”
