Young players aged 11-16 welcome to attend free sessions
- Great chance to be trained by Warriors coaches
Wigan Warriors Community Foundation, in partnership with Houses for homes and the RFL’s England Talent Pathway programme are hosting a series of open access player development days for Under 12s – Under 16s (Year 7 to Year 11).
The programme is designed to help every athlete reach their full athletic potential, regardless of age, gender, limitation, sport or natural ability.
Anthony Atherton, Community Innovation Manager said: “The previous sessions have been very popular and hugely successful. We are looking to building on the recent Winter Warrior Programme at Wigan Youth Zone and look to continue the great work done by teachers and coaches of the players.
“The players will be taken through various activities, scenarios and movement competencies designed to cover a range of skills concluding with a skill games component. The feedback from everybody concerned with our recent development camps was fantastic and we look forward to welcoming everybody back again.”
