Cottingham Tigers RLFC are members of the British Amateur Rugby League Association (BARLA), the Rugby Football League (RFL) and the Kingston upon Hull Amateur Rugby League.
Cottingham Tigers RLFC was formed twenty five years ago as a means for the youngsters of Cottingham and the surrounding area to enjoy the game of rugby league.
The club has made remarkable progress since those early days and can now justifiably boast to be amongst the most progressive and well-organised clubs in amateur rugby league.
The club is entirely self-funded relying like many other amateur sports clubs on subscriptions, fund raising and sponsorship.
The club are proud to boast that they were the first club in this area to receive the Sport England Clubmark accreditation. This is the award given by the national Governing body and to achieve it we have to demonstrate a good level of proficiency throughout the club in all areas of club management.
The club now boasts organised rugby league throughout the year with 12 teams in all different age groups.
Summer rugby is played by age groups under 8, 9, 10 and 11 and age groups under 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18 and open age play in the traditional winter months. From Summer 2012 the age groups under 12, 13, 14, and 15 will move to summer rugby. It is anticipated that the remaining age ranges will all move to summer rugby from 2013.
Approximately 250 children and young people enjoy the benefits of organised coaching and training at the club at least twice a week.
