Panthers is proud to run Sticks to Stadium - a community program designed to inspire Indigenous youth from regional communities.
Last week Panthers welcomed eight children and four mentors from Gilgandra, a town in the central west region of NSW.
Over three days the group undertook a number of activities including a trip to the NRL Learning Centre, South Sydney PCYC and the chance to experience the Sydney CBD.
The children met and mingled with Panthers players and staff at the Panthers Rugby League Academy, attended a training session and cheered the team on against the Titans.
Participation in the program is used as a reward for good behaviour and attendance at school, while the positive social and cultural experiences can be transformative for the children who make the journey.
