NORTH East Worcestershire Ravens hosted more than 80 rugby league junior players from across the South Midlands at Hopwood Park on Sunday.
Midlands’ development coaches ran a four-station skills carousel for age groups including under-nines, under-11s, under-13s and under-15s.
The groups followed the England development programme ‘Embed the Pathway’ before competing in conditional games to test their skills.
Players and parents who travelled from as far as Telford and Coventry praised the event for its quality of coaching and organisation.
Chair of the Midlands Rugby League Development Group said: “It was great to see so many young people playing rugby league in the Midlands.”
