Huddersfield Giants Evolution Pathway February- April 2018

Huddersfield Giants Community Team are pleased to announce details of their 2018 Evolution Pathway dates after a highly successful 2017 programme.

The first 2018 Evolution Pathway Development Days will take place in the February and April school holidays for under 12s, 13s and 14s, school years 7, 8 and 9 respectively.

The development day sessions will see players coached in line with the Huddersfield Giants Academy and First team structures. The sessions help to develop individual players as well as local community clubs and the local talent pool alongside the England Talent Pathway program.

Giants Head of Youth, Andy Kelly, commented: “We want to encourage people that are curious about Rugby League to give it a go and also for kids that want to push themselves. It’s a great opportunity not just for the players but also for coaches and teachers to participate or come along and observe.” “This programme helps us to identify people and talent, who we think have the attributes to take them forward to the next level. It also helps to give young players an insight into what the next level is, as the content of the programme is designed around it being accessible to all categories.”

The success of the program in 2017 has been highlighted with players progressing to the Huddersfield Giants Scholarship Program.

Huddersfield Giants Head of Community, Jonathan Timms was keen to add, “The program is not all about performance. Regardless of the level at which you play or your future ambitions as a player, the program is open to all. Any and all players from the relevant age groups are welcome, out overall aim is to improve all community game players and coaches through professional coaching”. 

One parent of an under 13s player attending spoke particularly highly of the development days, “The coaching the kids receive is first class, you can see them been challenged beyond what they have done before picking up and learning new skills. The sessions are well structured and most of all fun as well as developing the players”.
