These players will now join the 17 from last year and attend work shops where they will obtain academic qualifications NVQ Level 2 and 3 in Coaching, Teaching & Instruction and receive performance lifestyle support.
Performance Lifestyle is a UKSport accredited service designed for high achievers - those people who want to get the most out of life and produce their very best. It is aimed at athletes who know that many aspects of their life impact on each other and that each one needs to be carefully planned and managed if goals are to be achieved.
Performance Lifestyle is a personalised service designed to help each player create the unique environment necessary for their success.
All players complete coaching and refereeing courses and assist WWRU development officers with their community work.
WWRU Academy Co-ordinator Zoe Eaton said " This is a service to help the girls understand what it takes to become a professional athlete without the payment of a professional salary."
