Young Stallion Bailey Rogers leading by example in a tackling drill at the Rovers camp
which was held at the Cooma Showground over the weekend.
The 4th Annual Cooma Rovers
Rugby League Development
Camp was held at Cooma
Showground last Sunday.
Cooma Colts & Cooma Stallions
attended the Camp with players
ranging in age from Under 13 to
Under 18. Coaches in these age
groups were also in attendance.
The boys were put through
both attacking and defensive
drills during the day under
the supervision of accredited
coaches. The aim was to improve
the overall skill level of both the
players and coaches.
Thank you to the sponsors
who have kindly donated money
to assist with the running of the
Camp. Without their assistance
we would not be able to offer the
boys the opportunity to improve
their skills. Thank you to Cooma
Colts Junior Rugby League,
Cooma Stallions Rugby League,
Inspirations Paints Cooma and
Cooma Rovers Trust Fund.
For those who are not aware,
here is a brief background on the
In approximately 1965 the
Rovers Club purchased a house
from the Snowy Mountains
Authority and transporters it to
Cooma where they rebuilt it in
Betts Street for the purpose of
housing a coach.
When the Rovers became
the Alpine Wanderers in 1970
the house was placed in the
hands of a trust to be used for
the development of junior rugby
league in the area. It is still being
used for this purpose today
47 years later and the present
trustees include Chippy Boller,
Chris Mould and Mick Schofield.
Today the trust continues to
support junior Rugby League by
helping clubs purchase jumpers or
trophies and by donating money
to the Harry Nicholls Shield each
