9:20am Tuesday 25th September 2012 in News
WARRINGTON Wolves have teamed up with Warrington Collegiate to provide players with the chance to enhance their future career prospects via a new course.
Six players, Matty Blythe, Garreth Carvell, Ryan Atkins, Simon Grix, Rhys Williams and Richie Myler, have signed up for the new higher national diploma in sport and exercise sciences, due to begin at the college later this month.
Wolves player welfare manager Karl Fitzpatrick worked with the teaching staff in ensuring the course was tailored to meet the needs of his players.
Mark Harris, director for higher education at the collegiate, said: “The programme provides players with a sound understanding of sports science, through the disciplines of physiology, anatomy and sports injuries, preparing them to enter a range of career opportunities in the future.
“It is open to everyone and I am sure our students will get inspired studying alongside their local heroes."
Garreth, who was one of the first players to sign up for the course, added: “Even if you’re not sure what you’d like to do when starting the courses, there are plenty of options to adapt and suit your needs.”
A limited number of places on the course are still available.
