Pacifique Treize Second Nouméa Athletic Testing Day

Pacifique Treize is set to host the second round of athletic testing for interested athletes at Stade Numa Daly on Wednesday 1st July. The testing will be conducted to allow for athletes aged 16-22 from all sporting backgrounds to showcase their physical talents in the areas of strength, speed, power and endurance.

Following on from the inaugural athletic testing in May, Pacifique Treize President Manuel Jalabert hopes that this second round of testing will encourage more rugby players and players of other sporting backgrounds to attend. “We had a great response to our athletic testing in May and this second testing allows more athletes to be involved. During May we were restricted to numbers due to the Covid situation, however we feel that there are many other young talented athletes from both rugby and other sports such as basketball, volleyball and athletics that would like to be involved”.

Jalabert also commented “As we are a new rugby league team that is aiming to compete in the Australian based Intrust Super Cup by 2023, we believe that these testing days are vitally important in the identification process of capable young athletes who could potentially then be exposed to further training in rugby league over the coming years. Rugby League is an extremely entertaining game that promotes speed, power and endurance along with sublime skills. All attributes that New Caledonian athletes possess in abundance”.

Testing commences at Stade Numa Daly at 1:30pm on Wednesday 1st July and interested athletes who are aged 16-22 are required to contact Manuel Jalabert on manuel@pacifique13.com or by phone 786 125 to register.
