Train Like a Pro 2023

Train like a pro is a new project focused on providing young people with an insight into a “pro sports” lifestyle. This is delivered over 12 weeks with the cohort aimed at young males, on the periphery of anti-social behaviour. Within the 12 weeks, the project is divided into 2, with a focus on football for 6 weeks and the other 6 weeks on rugby partnering with Burnley FC and Warrington Wolves. Alongside this physical element, train like a pro will provide the group with a variety of talks, activities, and trips to help with their emotional wellbeing. The young people taking part in this cohort have all been identified through staff members of the Youth Zone. The group were chosen by YZ staff as they have been or have been at risk of getting into trouble. The sessions take place every Wednesday evening and have received almost 100% attendance, as you can see from the Video this is a hugely successful pilot and we cannot wait to see the outcome it has on the young men who are enrolled.
