» PLAYER APPEARANCES
As part of Wigan Warriors policy of serving the local community, the Club recognises that players are perceived as great role models within the local community. As such, players are available to make a limited number of player appearances throughout Wigan and surrounding areas within the playing season (January - September).
Players will be available to make appearances on behalf of schools, not-for-profit organisations and community events. Each appearance will last a maximum of 1 hour and external organisations will be limited to one appearance per calendar year.
In order for appearances to be beneficial for all parties involved and to assist in the selection of appearances the following criteria will apply to all requests:
- There needs to be a clear role for players at the appearance
- All appearances must ensure that the maximum number of people are influenced by the visit (an entire school assembly rather than classroom)
- Each organisation is limited to one appearance per calendar year
- The requests must not be activity based
- The requests must last up to a maximum of one hour
- All appearances are subject to Club approval and cannot be not guaranteed
All players are available for appearances from January to September during the Super League season however certain days will not be available due to training and playing commitments. These unavailable days can change from week-to-week however the normal routine is that appearances are not available the day before, of or after a game.
