Sydney Roosters and Wyong Roos visited the Central Coast Careers Pathways Expo to share the CareerWise stories of our athletes.
More than 3,000 Year 10, Year 11, and Year 12 students visited the expo from High Schools across the Central Coast.
National Rugby League hosted the expo stand to share information about the Wellbeing and Education Programs.
Wyong Roos’ Captain Mitch Williams was on hand to chat with the high school students about how he balances his role as Player Development Officer with his playing commitments for Wyong Roos and the NSW Residents side.
Alan Tongue, NRL Community Ambassador, engrossed the tough crowd as a keynote speaker on the main stage, sharing information about the various career opportunities available in rugby league.
The students’ knowledge about the off-field careers of some of the Sydney Roosters and Manly Sea Eagles biggest names was also tested with many surprised about the off-field pursuits of some of the biggest names in the game.
Many of the Teachers, Principals, and other Exhibitors were keen to learn more about No Work, No Study = No Play for the National Youth Competition and the NRL CareerWise program implemented for all Sydney Roosters players from Under 16s through to National Rugby League.
Most importantly many of the attendees walked away with a Sydney Roosters cap, lanyard, or poster and a new affiliation to support the Sydney Roosters both on and off-the-field.
