Players from Leeds Rhinos Foundation’s Learning Disability Super League team were amongst those invited by social care charity Community Integrated Care to take part in a unique training session at the home of the Rhinos earlier this week.
Stars of the LD Super League competition gathered at Headingley Stadium to take part in a special training session on the famous Headingley Stadium pitch to promote the upcoming season and have a chance to show off their skills for the RAM Films cameras, which were rolling for a top secret project coming soon!
For the Rhinos players involved, it was a chance to train like their heroes on the hallowed turf and enjoy another opportunity to play at their team’s home ground.
The new LD Super League season will get underway in May, with a record number of clubs and players set to take part in the adapted form of the sport which gives people with learning disabilities and autism the opportunity to represent their favourite clubs, keep active and live out their sporting dreams.
Festivals will take place across the country, with a series of non-competitive matches which aim to promote the development of skills, confidence and positive experiences for people with learning disabilities, and make a major statement about social inclusion.
