The Leicester Tigers Hitz project has helped me grow in confidence and I have found it to be really informative. It has given me the opportunity to do things I never thought I would be able to do whilst gaining the skills that are going to help me get full time employment.Ryan Lount, HITZ participant
Designed to help 16-24 year olds not in education, Employment or Training, the HITZ programme helps young people to tackle challenges that can lead them astray.
HITZ uses rugby as a platform to support the development of social, employability and vocational skills to help vulnerable individuals.
Delivered nationally by Premiership Rugby and funded by partners Comic Relief, Land Rover, CSL and Wooden Spoon, the course provides the building blocks for people to help them take control of their future.
The course offers the opportunity to gain relevant sporting qualifications, alongside employability and money management skills.
How the course works?
With the help of our enthusiastic staff, we hope that the young people that attend will be able to leave with a new found confidence and readiness to succeed in education or employment.
