Offload To Continue In New Year

Offload To Continue In New Year

17th December 2018

Widnes Vikings are dedicated to building the mental resilience of males in the Halton area, and have seen fantastic results as a part of the Club’s Offload programme, which will return in 2019.

Offload is a free weekly programme that uses the power of Rugby League to help men build their mental fitness.

Every Tuesday between 6:30pm-8pm, Offload Programme Co-ordinator Sean Mellor welcomes participants to join in the interactive sessions which takes place in a relaxed and fun environment.

The team of presenters includes former players, coaches and referees such as Danny Sculthorpe, Phil Veivers and Ian Smith, who share past experiences with mental health problems and how they overcame the obstacles they faced.

Delivered in partnership with Rugby League Cares, the sessions are free and open to all men aged 16-65 and no knowledge of rugby league is needed to attend.

Although the sessions follow a 10-week ‘fixture list’, participants can drop in at any time and attend as many sessions as they wish.

So, if you’re looking for practical advice on how to cope with mental health issues, or looking to improve your mental fitness – head to your next Offload session when we release the new start date for next year in due course.

Timings: Every Tuesday, 6pm-8pm (NEW START DATE FOR 2019 TO BE CONFIRMED)
