This February half term saw the Wigan Warriors Community Foundation travel to Carlisle where they delivered a fun and exciting coaching camp to the East Cumbria Crusaders newly founded junior section.
The Warriors Foundation coaches led the youngsters through two days of developing their skills in which the players learnt to train the ‘Warriors Way'.
In addition to this, the camps participants were also treated to a visit from the Wigan Warriors Club mascot, Mighty Max and the Carnegie Challenge Cup .
The exclusive ‘Warriors Way' training that the Warriors Foundation coaches delivered comes direct from the Warriors Head Coach Shaun Wane.
The concept is taken and adapted by the Warriors Foundation to maximise the enjoyment and fun had by all participants' whist incorporating the essential skills required in the development of young Rugby League players.
The junior section that was only founded in late 2011 through the hard work of coach Stuart Minnis is now over 20 players strong and growing from strength to strength.
"All the kids loved the camp, the 2 days were a huge success and we're all looking forward to coming along to watch the Warriors play London in March."
Mike Wearden, Warriors Community Foundation Coach added:
"What Stuart and the coaching team at East Cumbria Crusaders have achieved is fantastic. Both the facilities and support the club has is second to none and great for developing rugby league in the local area."
"The kids we coached were brilliant and they are a credit to the club. As Warriors Foundation coaches we thoroughly enjoyed our trip and are looking forward to our next visit."
