TRI SPORT!: an alternative sports engagement programme.
In an innovative move to engage the youth of our city the three local RL clubs Castleford Tigers, Featherstone Rovers and Wakefield Trinity Wildcats have linked with Wakefield District Housing, the Community Safety Partnership and Wakefield Council’s Active Lifestyle, Youth Work and Youth Offending Teams to deliver a 12 weeks-long sports project out on the streets and in open spaces.
Looking to work primarily with young people aged 13 – 19 years the teams of youth workers and sports coaches will keep young people safe and engage them in healthy and sports activities and involve them in social action activity to undertake a local community project to provide positive alternatives to hanging about on the streets.
This project aims improve the district networks for engaging the wider community in meaningful activities tailored around the needs interests of young people to develop individual skill, team work, confidence, self-esteem and personal achievement.
Look out for us out and about and TRI SPORT!
