Last week saw the Wildcats Community Team visit Wakefield College to welcome this year’s new intake of Sport and Public Services students to the college by delivering Touch Rugby sessions.
In all, the Wildcats delivered 7 taster sessions to the various tutor groups which culminated in a touch rugby festival at the end of the week. Throughout the week the sessions were delivered to just short of 100 pupils all of whom had the chance to be crowned the winners of the induction week tournament on the Friday.
Wildcats Development Officer Richard Cattley commented, “The kids all seemed to enjoy the sessions, especially the festival at the end of the week. This is the second year in a row that we have done this and it has gone from strength to strength.”
“Hopefully now we will have generated enough interest to get a mini league going at the College for the pupils to take part in. I’d like to thank Wakefield College for allowing us to come in and do these sessions on what is a very hectic week for the students. I’d also like to thank all the staff in the Wildcats Community Team and ‘League For All’ Officer Tony Miller for their help on the tournament and throughout the week with all the sessions’
Nick Young, Sports Lecturer at the college, added, “It’s great that the Wildcats can come in and do this for us. It helps us out massively by allowing the new students to interact and get to know each other as an ice breaker through rugby league.”
“The Wildcats have been great with us and we hope they come back again next year. I would like to thank them for all their hard work this week”.
