At half-time in Tigers’ fixture against Nottingham, the Dynamite Club groups commemorated the end of their 70-hour courses by joining international rugby stars Tom Croft and Ben Youngs for photos on the Welford Road pitch.
The Dynamite Club is an aspirational, high-profile programme delivered by Leicester Tigers Education targeting young people not in education, employment or training made possible by the support of Leicestershire Connexions, TNT and the Wooden Spoon Children’s Charity.
Each course is designed to use the positives of sport to encourage and assist young adults (aged 16-19 years) to improve their opportunities and progress into either education or employment. Throughout the course the Tigers team encourages a better understanding of a healthier and more active lifestyle. Qualifications are added to the challenging activities including Tigers’ own nationally-recognised Level 1 qualification in strength and conditioning.
With the support of Wooden Spoon, over the past three years the Dynamite Club has helped more than 100 young adults towards a better future.
