Rockets Reveal SENsational Programme

Rockets Reveal SENsational Programme

... alongside a new partnership with Autism Northumberland.

RFL Club of the Year, Cramlington Rockets have expanded their reach into the community once again.

Known for its family values and innovation, the Rockets have launched SENsational, a rebranding of its disability coaching to bring all its work under the same umbrella.

The new programme comes hot on the heels of its 'Barci's Buddies' programme, a new initiative with national restaurant chain, Nando's to support children to make positive lifestyle choices.

The latest group to sign up with the Rockets is Autism Northumberland, with a weekly session running every Thursday exclusively for children supported by Autism Northumberland.

"We are very proud to be able to work with even more young people in Northumberland," said Rockets Community Manager, Steve Beaty.

"We have been expanding our work over recent years and it became clear there was a demand for something like this.

"Once we met them we Autism Northumberland, it became clear we shared the same values and were passionate about giving every child the opportunity to take part in sport."

Talking about what's planned, Beaty continued: "The fact it will be weekly sessions will be great for those involved as it means they have a structure and regularly activity to look forward to.

Our coach, Steph Tait, who recently joined the team, is passionate about this type of coaching and will provide an environment that will be, what other word is there, sensational."
