Vikings promote Sky Try

Following the Sky Try festival outside of Anfield prior to the Four Nations final, Widnes Vikings have been delivering Sky Try sessions across both Halton and Liverpool to promote rugby league. 

The Sky Try programme aims to make a difference by increasing the amount of viewers, spectators and participants to Rugby League, with the RFL viewing this as a great opportunity to develop and grow the sport.

Last weekend, children from Holy Family Primary School and members of Halton Farnworth Hornets made the trip to Anfield to take part in a Sky Try festival on Stanley Park as a curtain raiser to the Four Nations final between Australia and New Zealand.

With the sport of rugby league being in the mind of many people in Liverpool following Sunday's final, the Vikings have been quick to ensure that this message is continued in schools.

The Vikings have been delivering sessions at schools such as St Vincent De Paul Primary School and Much Woolton Primary School in Liverpool, and also across Halton at Lunts Heath Primary School, St Bedes, Widnes Academy and Ditton Primary School to name just a few. 

Liam Clark, Education Officer at Widnes Vikings, says: "Following the success of the Sky Try festival at Anfield on Sunday, as a Club we was keen to continue to promote the sport throughout Liverpool and Halton," he said.

"Sky Try is a great way to get children involved in the sport of rugby league, but to also promote healthy living and exercise, and we are delighted that we have been able to promote this message across many schools this week."
