This week marks #ThreeLionsWeek which is an initiative with the goal of getting more youngsters involved in the sport of rugby league and to build anticipation for the World Cup next month.

In line with #ThreeLionsWeek and the goal of increasing participation in the sport, Castleford Tigers Foundation are thrilled to be implementing a number of FREE Tigers Talent Pathway sessions to inspire the next generation.

The classes will be available for boys aged 14 and under with the first session getting underway at 6pm on Monday, 3rd of October at The Mend-A-Hose Jungle.

Two further skill development sessions will go ahead in the weeks following on the 10th and 17th of October with a location to be confirmed to the participants and their parents or guardians at the opening session next week.

Players will also get the great opportunity of being involved in an RFL festival hosted at Featherstone Lions where participants will take on the likes of Featherstone and Wakefield in competitive matches.

Full session times and location details below:

3/10/22: Program introduction and contact – The Jungle – 6pm to 7pm

17/10/22: Skill Development – Location to be confirmed – 6pm to 7pm

Sessions are led by Castleford Tigers’ Youth Performance staff and focus on both the fundamentals of the game and technical skills, as well as player’s physical and mental development.

Since starting up in 2015 the programme has been attended by several current First Team players, who have since gone on to make their Super League debuts, including Jason Qareqare, Jack Sadler, and Sam Hall. The programme is also the first opportunity for promising young players to showcase their talents and attitudes towards coaching and development to the Castleford performance staff.
