The Tigers have teams at under 17, under 15and under 13. The two youngest teams play in the North East Rugby League and the under 17 side \plays in the Yorkshire Youth League.
We will be starting an under 11 team very soon and we will get girl's Rugby League going in September.
We are a community club which welcomes everyone to join us. You can expect a very warm welcome to the Rugby League Family. You do not need to have played the game before all you need is enthusiasm and the willingness to learn new skills
In the short time we have been going we have made huge steps forward. Lots of our players have gone on to play for Durham County and for the North East. we have also built up a team of willing volunteers who provide excellent support as do our committed and generous sponsors.
We also have Sports England "Clubmark" accreditation which means that we meet all the criteria to provide a safe and caring environment for young people. We enjoy generous support from a wide variety of groups including the Co. Durham Foundation, Awards for All, Sports England Bishop Auckland Town Council, Wear Valley District Council and now Durham County.
All this has lead to our rapid growth based upon Rugby League principles of hard work, honesty and integrity.
Our most recent appointment is Dave Wood who is in charge of the under 16 (soon to be under17 side). Dave is the former chief coach of Gateshead Thunder and Castleford Tigers. He is undoubtedly the finest coach operating in junior rugby inn the North East.
Dave is also helping our other coaches develop their skills to provide the best possible opportunities to learn to play "the greatest game".
The Club orgnises social events, presentation nights, sportsmen's dinners etc to promote fund raising and wide participation. We organise trips to major Rugby League events such as the Four Nations and the Super League Grand Final at Old Trafford.
The Club welcomes newcomers. We train on Wednesday nights with the under 12s starting at 5-30pm and the under 14s at 6-30pm. The under 16 side trains on Mondays and Wednesdays at 7pm. At the moment we are training at Bishop Auckland Rugby Club at West Mills P)laying Fields although this is soon to change.
