Greenmount girls pathway

Wigan Warriors Community Foundation recently hosted their Greenmount girls development pathway day during the half term at Robin Park Arena.

The day saw our Community Foundation coaches deliver sessions to over 85 participants from ages 12-16 (School years 7-11) alongside England World Cup star Georgia Wilson.

Throughout the sessions, players went through core skill (grip, catch and pass), play the ball and tackle techniques leading into small sided skill games where participants could put everything into practice.

These sessions are designed for participants to help improve their Rugby skills in the school holidays to take back to both their school and Community Clubs to help benefit them further throughout the season.


Rugby development Manager and Girls Academy Head Coach, John Whalley said: “Our inaugural Greenmount Girls Development pathway session has been really positive. A huge number of participants came to the development day with some fantastic talent on show. The support of Greenmount is huge for us having a consistent pathway for girl’s rugby league now and in the future.”

Mike Sharkey, CEO of Greenmount Projects added: “As with all inspiring opportunities in sport, it is so satisfying to support Wigan Warriors and the Community Foundation in creating a first-class environment for young players to reach their full potential and engage in a sport that is equal to all.

“Well done to all the girls involved, we are proud to support you on your pathway with the Warriors.”
