Vikings hold Sky Try CPD session

30th March 2017

Widnes Vikings community coaches held a CPD session last week for local community club’s across Halton to offer insight into primary rugby league, Widnes Vikings performance pathway and community engagement.  

Primary Rugby League is a modified version of the game played by children between the ages of 6 to 11 years of age. Coaches from West Bank Bears, Halton Farnworth Hornets and Moorfield ARLFC attended the session last Wednesday evening at Halton Stadium, which was led by Vikings Community team members Liam Clark and Dan Newall.

The CPD session offered an insight into Widnes Vikings, with the aims, the benefits, the ethos and the rationale of Primary Rugby League being discussed during the evening. 

Sky Try Primary Rugby League is delivered in primary schools across Halton. Each primary school will receive a minimum of 5 weeks consecutive coaching, followed by a recruitment event such as an assembly or participation festival.

Liam Clark, Community Co-Ordinator at Widnes Vikings, says: “It was brilliant to offer this to the local community and share the vision that we have into primary rugby league at Widnes Vikings,”

“Hopefully the coaches that completed the session gained an understanding and better insight, and take it with them back into their respective community clubs.”
