SIGN UP: The PSM rugby league clinic will return to Muswellbrook in 2020.

THE Public Sports Management (PSM) Rugby League Clinic will return to Muswellbrook in 2020 during the spring holidays.

It will take place on October, 9 at Olympic Park. You can sign up via their website.

Despite many events being called off throughout the year, the training camp will go ahead with former Penrith, NSW and Australian Rugby League player and now assistant coach at Manly Sea Eagles, John Cartwright, set to make the journey too.

It is the third time the clinic, which focuses on teaching kids the fundamentals across the 6 -8, 9-12 and 13-17 age groups, has come to Muswellbrook.

On top of doing the basics, those involved will also get the chance to play some games and have fun.

PSM Camps Director Simon Healey said coming to Muswellbrook is always a highlight for the organisers, due to the amount of interest and talent they have to work with.

"We're very well supported and there's some great kids out there, so it's about getting out to towns like that to give those kids an opportunity" he said.

Excitingly, they will be identifying some young players in the 13-17 years age group to take to Sydney for their academy day.

During that day, those selected from country areas across the state will gather and get the opportunity to learn from current and former NRL players and coaches.

"It's a great little incentive for those young kids in the 13-17 age group that want to make it in rugby league and be identified and learn extra things to come along and have the opportunity to be selected," said Mr Healy.

The event has been designed in a way which is COVID-19 safe. Anyone interested must sign up prior to the day.
