Vikings launch new ‘Future Stars’ project

28th April 2017

Widnes Vikings are pleased to announce the launch of ‘Future Stars’, a project which combines rugby league and health and wellbeing awareness for children and parents in Halton.

'Future Stars' provides boy and girls of primary age the opportunity to play and train like their heroes at the home of the Vikings under the supervision of its award winning community coaching team. With regular appearances from the Viking’s First Team stars to inspire participants, ‘Future Stars’ will offer a fun and exciting environment for children of all abilities to develop their passing, catching, kicking, tackling and try scoring abilities at Halton Stadium.

Whilst supporting the development of rugby skills is a focus of ‘Future Stars’, the Vikings team will also embed healthy lifestyle sessions into the programme for both participants and parents as part of its partnership with Halton Clinical Commissioning Group. This innovative approach is designed to promote health and wellbeing, on and off the pitch.

‘Future Stars’ will take place Friday evenings at the following times:

  • Reception and Year 1 children: 4.30pm – 5.15pm
  • Year 2 and Year 3 Children: 5.30pm – 6.30pm
  • Year 4 and Year 5 Children: 6pm – 7pm

Enter via Stadium Fitness at the Halton Stadium, all children will need to wear suitable clothes and boots, while bringing a bottle of water and piece of fruit.

'Future Stars' will run in 6 week cycles with the first 6 week programme starting on Friday 5th May 2017 and will run on the following Friday's (5th / 12th / 19th / 26th May / 2nd / 9th June). The 6 week programme costs £4.00 per week, with each child receiving a free SkyTry T-shirt. There is a promotional offer available where if you book for all 6 weeks you will only pay for 5 weeks. ‘Future Stars’ is open to both none playing and playing community club players.
