Rugby League Information
The British rugby league divisional hierarchy is structured as follows:
Tier 1: Super League (full time professional)
Tier 2: Cooperative Championships (mainly semi professional)
Tier 3: National Conference Leagues (mainly amateur)
Tier 4: Regional Leagues (amateur)
There are several levels within tiers 2, 3 and 4. Tier 4 is the community game or 'grassroots' level. Since the game aligned all the divisions under one structure in 2011 it is now possible, in theory, to climb the divisions from community club status all the way up to the top flight.
Southampton Spitfires are a mid level tier 4 community club.
