Advantage! Barrow Raiders Community Foundation received funding in March 2021 to deliver a weekly rugby skills and fun session to boys who may lack confidence, or have never played rugby league, but who really enjoy the game of rugby league and want to try.
The sessions are free, thanks to funding and fantastic support from Boost Charitable Trust.
They take place on Thursday evenings at The Matt Johnson Prestige Stadium and move inside for the winter months.
Our ambition for 2023 is to further grow the numbers attending the sessions, targeting boys who need support to develop their self-esteem, skills, and abilities.
We also aim to engage with our fantastic local community clubs to ensure pathways are available for those boys who wish to develop their rugby skills further and perhaps even play competitively.
