The community team will be back in action in the next week beginning their schools programmes. This first half term is very busy for the department with the team delivering a wide range of different activities spread far and wide around the city and also delving into Barnsley.
First up the Rugby side of the Community Department are delivering 3 separate primary school coaching blocks in various parts of Wakefield and surrounding areas. These areas include: Fitzwilliam/Havercroft/Ryhill; Walton and Crofton; and after last year’s successful block they will be returning to Barnsley. The primary block will go hand in hand with other activity including secondary school extra-curricular coaching, touch rugby time-out sessions at Wakefield College and also continuing our successful assembly programme.
The dance side of the Community Department will be in action around the Stanley/Outwood areas delivering street dance sessions to the primary schools. The ages of the kids taking part range from year 3 all the way up to year 6. The dance along with the rugby will also be making their first visit through the coaching programme to Wakefield Independent School. The school based adjacent to Nostill Priory will be taking in dance and rugby sessions for the first time this half term as the Wildcats Community teams’ reputation has seen them wish to be involved this time around.
The community team also welcome 2 new faces this academic year. Former Wildcats reserve player Dan Hardy joins as Projects Officer along with new Women & Girls Officer Clare Marlow.
