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, but really enjoy the game of rugby league.
The sessions are free, thanks to funding and fantastic support from Boost Charitable Trust.
They take place on Thursdays from 5.30pm – 6.30pm at The Matt Johnson Prestige Stadium, or during the winter months, 5-6pm at Hindpool Community Centre.
Our ambition for 2022 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.
