THE Giants have boosted their youth development system by linking up with Huddersfield New College to create a Rugby League Academy.
The new and exciting partnership will look to develop talented athletes along two pathways.
One is responsible for making sure athletes gain educational qualification that will benefit the individual during and after a playing career and the second is development of player performance with the Huddersfield Giants.
Commenting on the link-up Giants Head of Youth Performance Damian McGrath said: “This partnership is a very important part of our Elite Performance Strategy.
“The initiative gives our young players the best possible opportunities on and off the field.
“It allows talented scholarship players to develop not only their academic qualifications but to work within a professional sporting environment at the superb facilities of Huddersfield New College.”
