Lee Parfitt

Huddersfield Giants Tutor

Lee has recently joined the Education Team, having, in his first year, been responsible for the delivery of the Level 3 Sports Qualification to the Huddersfield Giants Year One Group. Having had a successful year, he will now be responsible for both the first and second year groups for the Giants Academy Team.

Prior to joining the Huddersfield Trust, Lee spent 25 years in the British Army, eventually specialising in the delivery of Physical Training and Injury Rehabilitation. Reaching the rank of Sgt Major, he brings a vast wealth of knowledge in his specialised areas and now applies this into both his teaching and classroom management. Whilst in the Army, Lee completed a degree in Sports Rehabilitation with St Marys University, Twickenham and a Master’s Degree in Strength and Conditioning with Teesside University. His teaching qualification was also gained during his final years in the military.

Away from teaching Lee runs his own business, delivering Group Exercise sessions to his clients in Barnsley. He also delivers Level 2 Fitness Instructor and Level 3 Personal Trainer Courses.

Lee believes that any person, regardless of background and perceived ability, is capable of achieving anything in education, given the right attitude and application.
