Playing sport at any level can be stressful, especially for high-level adolescent rugby league players who are hoping to forge a career in their sport. These athletes could potentially experience stressors of playing for their academy side, loan team, and first team. In this article I provide a summary of a presentation I gave to rugby league academy and assistant academy managers from each super league club within the United Kingdom and France. I also explain elements of the presentation and the rationale for the inclusion of content.
