Shearings Support Junior Development Programme

  • Award Winning Tour Operator to support Eight-week development programme for junior RL players

  • Winter Warriors delivered at Wigan Youth Zone

  • Free 2018 season ticket, training t-shirt and 12-month membership to Wigan Youth Zone

Wigan Warriors have partnered with Shearings to give young players in Wigan the chance to train well across the winter.

Winter Warriors is a multi-discipline programme that will allow young rugby players access to the expertise of Warriors performance staff to aid their development during the winter months, providing them with greater preparation for the 2018 junior season.

Wigan Warriors have designed a curriculum of activities aimed at developing the following key areas through eight age specific sessions:

  • Technical Skills through Hand Eye Co-Ordination Drills

  • Confidence in Contact & Core Strength through Contact Activity

  • Movement Literacy through Speed & Agility Exercises

Speaking about the new partnership, Richard Calvert, Chief Executive Shearings Leisure Group said:

Wigan is at the heart of our company and we are proud to team up with Wigan Warriors and support the Wigan Youth Zone who passionately aim to make a difference to young people’s lives in the borough of Wigan

Based at the outstanding Youth zone facility in Wigan Town Centre, the programme will run for eight weeks and is split into two 4-week blocks with a Christmas break.

The cost for the programme is £50.00 and all participants will receive a 2018 Junior Season Ticket, bespoke t-shirt that will be worn for the sessions and a 12-month membership pass to Wigan Youth Zone.
