Leicester Riders Foundation launch JNBL Virtual Academy.

With the current Lockdown restrictions the return of our Junior National League programme was paused at the start of January. We would usually see 11 Junior teams play and train twice a week as part of our academy programme. LRF have successfully launched our Virtual academy, where our LRF coaches are providing two  pre recorded sessions each week, covering tactical coaching and fitness masterclasses. This is then combined with a live session each week where coaches are meeting with their teams and taking part in a variety of activities focused around team work and wellbeing. This has been a great success so far and has been a great in keeping connected with our young players throughout this lockdown period.
