About Wavell Warriors


The Wavell State High School ‘Rugby League Excellence Program’ provides an excellent opportunity for aspiring rugby league players in Australia. The Program gives student athletes the opportunity to receive high quality coaching while studying Rugby League as a subject. Wavell State High School has become well known in the community not only for our Rugby League Program, but also high quality facilities and strong emphasis on academic effort and behaviour. 

The Rugby League Excellence Program at Wavell State High School is well known for its values based Sporting Excellence approach. Our model has served as a framework for many others to follow, but as they say, the original is the best! Students are given real world skills that will serve them well no matter the career they choose. Every player that pulls on the iconic Wavell jersey has met these standards.

In addition to generous support from our sponsors, including General Taxation Services, Jassay Finance, KEMP Law and Norths Devils Old Boys, our famous program is backed by the Brisbane Broncos (NRL) and Norths Devils (Queensland Cup), as well as a plethora of local junior rugby league clubs. These community partners provide coaching workshops for staff and students, financial/scholarship support, player mentoring opportunities and numerous other benefits.

Not only do we want our boys and girls to "win on the field" but our main focus is for the students to "win off the field". Our program encourages the students to focus on their academic learning and to create a positive learning environment using Rugby League as the tool for success. A great initiative that has been place for a few years now to reach this goal, is the Academic Warriors Initiative.

Just as importantly as creating students who achieve academically, we aim to great people who are socially responsible individuals. Our Core Values; Humility, Excellence, Accountability and Resilience, are instilled into the players from Year 7 until graduation, setting them up for a successful career.

If you like to become a part of the program, become a sponsor or just learn some more about the program, please contact us.
