Day 4 of the Wakefield Trinity Community Foundation Advent Calendar sees us focus on an integral part of our Rugby League setup, the Trinity Pathway programme.
2021 has been a year of growth for our Rugby League department, running vital Player Development Centres throughout the year, but it was the Summer Series programme that took a bit leap this year.
After gaining over 200 participants at our back-to-back PDC programmes to start the year, the Foundation’s pathway into professional Rugby League was going from strength to strength.
Supporting young players from the age of 11 to 15, the centres offer experienced and unique coaching in a different setting, maximising both development and enjoyment.
Following a few months of PDCs, the Foundation started our Summer Series programme, up-skilling players with a look to engaging different talent pathways for lucky participants.
Training, rounded off with three games against York and Leeds as well as a State of Origin-style clash between teams, offered great development opportunities for players of the different community clubs situated across the district.
Looking back on a successful Summer for our development pathway programmes, the Foundation’s Rugby League Development Manager, Josh Riding, said, “As a club, we are really pleased with how our Trinity Pathway programmes have performed in 2021.
“To have 2020 wiped out by the pandemic, we are proud to have come back bigger and better this year.
“To had an incredible number of participants engage in our development programmes this year, which is a huge achievement and something we aim to build on in the coming year.”
