Children from across Halton had an experience of a lifetime, as they learned what it takes to become a Super League player at our half-term Game Changer Camp.
59 children took part in the Game Changer camp, a two-day event that saw them train on the I-Pitch, develop their rugby league skills and enjoying time with Widnes Vikings’ first team squad. The event was supported by Landscape World.
The children were also given exclusive access to watch the Vikings first team squad train on the pitch, ahead of our upcoming games against Wigan Warriors and Catalans Dragons. The players were inspirationally welcomed onto the field with a guard of honour by their young fans.
This final day of the camp saw the children enjoy lunch together at Parklands. The children enjoyed asking the squad about their diets, lifestyle and life in the Super League.
Liam Clark, Education Officer at the Vikings, says: “The Game Changer Camp was a brilliant experience for the young children. They had great fun, taking part in all of our activities and getting behind the scenes in the stadium."
"The lunch with the first team squad was a perfect way to the close the Camp. The children were so excited to meet their favourite players, and it will be a moment that they will never forget. They left the Camp with some great tips on staying fit and playing the game, and feeling much closer to the club they love.”
He adds. “I’d like to thank Landscape World for sponsoring the Camp, and Nina and everyone at Parklands for arranging the lunch. Further thanks go to Anthony’s Travel for transporting the children, and to Tall Security Print for generously donating team pictures for them to have autographed.”
The Game Changer Camp builds on a programme that we are delivering in 36 primary schools across Halton to promote healthy lifestyles amongst local people. Game Changer is delivered in partnership with Improving Me - Cheshire and Merseyside Women and Children Services Vanguard.
