Ever wondered what it would be like to be a professional rugby player for a day?  Now you can find out!

Spend the day like Richard Mathers or Danny Kirmond and experience what it's like to be a professional rugby player!

Wakefield Wildcats are hosting a ‘Be A Pro’ camp on Friday January 4th at Crofton Sports and Social Club to finish the Christmas holidays off in style.

The camp will have one-on-one engagement with Wildcats first team stars, professional under 19’s players and Trinity scholars – two of which are in the current England set-up. They will help coordinate and run the fun-filled day alongside the Wildcats Community Trust staff which will incorporate lots of activities to give an insight into the life of a first team player.

Every child will receive a Wildcats t-shirt, silicon watch and lunchbox which will see the children start the new school term looking fashionable taking their packed lunch in a brand new lunchbox.

There will be no worry about the chilly weather with activities taking place on Crofton’s 3G all weather pitch followed by a ‘Q&A’ session with first team stars at the end of the day which will incorporate hours of activities it is a day not to be missed for children aged 6-12.

The event will see key members of the senior academy and current internationals on hand to pass on tips including Curtis McDonald, who has recently represented the full Scotland side, while Corbyn Kilday and James Healy have been selected for the under 18’s for the same nation.

With junior international players taking activities the action packed day is a rare moment where you can simulate what professional rugby league players train for everyday. There is a strict limit of just 30 places and at £30 per person this fantastic opportunity is likely to sell-out quickly.
