Wakefield Trust community partners will join local amateur clubs at the celebration of rugby league in Wakefield on Friday 13th June.

Representatives from Wakey Wheeled Cats, Vibe Fitness and Street Salsa join James Stephenson from the Wakefield Trust.

Ahead of the Wildcats facing London Broncos at 8pm, the Rapid Solicitors Stadium is set to host a celebration of the sport with junior amateur teams with tickets priced at just £10 for adults, £6 for concessions and kids for just a quid.

New community partners Street Salsa UK and Vibe Fitness will join the city’s roller derby team, Wakey Wheeled Cats in working with the Trust on joint fundraising initiatives and promoting each other’s services via respective websites and social media channels.

StreetSalsa is the modern partner dance taking bars, clubs and studios by storm. A fusion of Salsa and Street dance, StreetSalsa run three class formats: Beginners, Salsa+ and Street+, as well as having a buzzing online community of like-minded young professionals and students.

If you want to try something new, meet new people, have fun and get fit then StreetSalsa is for you.

“At StreetSalsa we have always been about the community and the partnership we have with the Wakefield Wildcats and the Wakefield Community Trust will help us connect with the people of Wakefield,” said James Hearle of StreetSalsa UK.

Vibe Fitness run a host of classes out of  the first floor studio at the JP Baker School of Dance in Normanton including VIBE-Pump, VIBE-Tone and Zumba classes.

“It’s an incredible opportunity for Vibe Fitness to partner with the Wakefield Community Trust,,” said Vibe Fitness owner, Vicki Bentham. “We are all really looking forward to working closely and supporting the Trust and the Wildcats throughout 2014.”

Both will be joining Wakey Wheeled Cats who were the first of the Trust partners in 2013 and can be regularly found at Wildcats home matches supporting the team and spreading the word about one of the fastest growing sports in the country – roller derby.

The high octane, full-contact sport is mainly played by women and has enjoyed a renaissance in the last decade. It is now played by teams in more than 40 countries, with more than 100 teams in the UK. Wakey Wheeled Cats were among the first leagues in the country, founded in spring 2009, and the league is run by the skaters, for the skaters. They train three times a week at Lightwaves Leisure Centre, Wakefield.

“We are pleased to be renewing our sports partnership with the Wildcats & Wakefield Community Trust,” said Kirsty Quinn of the Wheeled Cats.

“We hope that together we can grow on the relationships we have already built; both by promoting our relative sports to a new audience and helping to encourage our local community to get involved.

This season the Wheeled Cats will be wearing both the Wildcats and the Trust’s logos on our new team uniform.  We were made very welcome by the Wildcats supporters last year, and we hope to return that hospitality by offering them reduced ticket prices for our home games this year.”
