Saints Community Development Foundation, in partnership with Community Integrated Care and the Learning Disability Super League (LDSL), have released a 33 week programme leading up to the RLWC2021!
As there are still restrictions and uncertainty over when players and teams can gather again, the Rugby Football League has worked with Community Integrated Care and leading Foundations within rugby league to develop a 33 week programme linking to the Rugby League World Cup (RLWC) 2021!
The LDSL Rugby League World Cup Skills Journal will empower the LDSL community to be active within their homes through incentivised challenges. Each of the 33 challenges has been set by a competing team across the men’s, women’s and wheelchair world cups, completing the challenges will earn congratulatory postcards from stars of the game.
Barry Diggles, SCDF’s LDRL Programmes Manager said: “The Saints LDRL players are really looking forward to take part in the RLWC challenges and have now received their resource packs so next week they can start to do some of the skills drills set out, this in term will help to prepare them for when they can eventually get out onto the field and do what they do best – enjoy playing the game and representing the saints community.”
Craig Richards, SCDF Coaching and Development Manager mentioned: “This bespoke resource offers our Head Coach Gareth Foster, his staff and players a great engagement toolkit that will bring the squad back together until we can return to our normal sessions and festivals, the staffhave been absolutely fantastic and are all eager to return”
