Free Family Fitness Fun!

Free Family Fitness Fun!

17th February 2017

Families in Halton can enjoy free sports, health and activity sessions with Widnes Vikings every week, as part of our brilliant new programme: 'Reach'.

Every Tuesday, families of primary school children can take part in fun and friendly activity sessions with our specialist coaches. They'll have opportunities to play together on the iPitch, go behind the scenes, and even train in the Vikings' players gym.

The sessions, which will be open and accessible to all, will give families the opportunity to spend time together and enjoy getting healthy. They'll be led by our specialist community coaching team and several sessions will be visited by Vikings players.

Daniel Scott, Education Partnerships Manager for Widnes Vikings says: "Every parent wants to enjoy spending quality time with their children, and to have a healthy and happy family. Reach offers families a great way to get fit, make new friends and have fun. We're planning for them to be really special and we think they'll be a real highlight of the week."

This programme builds on our Game Changer programme, which sees the Vikings work with local schools to promote more active lives for our young people. It is supported by NHS Halton CCG.

Sessions are free to take part and will take place on Tuesday's between 4.30pm – 5.30pm, starting 28th February.
