Huddersfield Giants Community are delighted to announce their upcoming Block 1 England Talent Pathway CPD.

This will take place at 6:30pm Monday 24th April at The Zone, St Andrews Road, Huddersfield, HD1 6PT and links to the recent recognition as an outstanding player development parter of the England Talent Pathway.

The CPD event is open to UKCC Level 2 coaches, specifically targeted at coaches involved with u12/13/14, however we would encourage all coaches to attend from u10 and above.

Block 1 is the first part of a three block CPD program and is FREE of charge and all coaches attending will leave with ETP resources.

Coaches attending all three blocks become accredited England Player Development Coaches. This sits within the ETP philosophy to develop coaches to develop players.

Following coach attendance, clubs are then able to become an England Player Development club, a process of registration and agreement with England Talent Pathway and The RFL. We would like to see all Huddersfield Giants ambassador clubs engage with the CPD and all become England Player Development Clubs, allowing you use of the England Player Development Club logo on promotional materials, website etc.

Beyond accreditation community clubs are then provided with access to support and resource to further upskill their coaches and / or to incorporate more of their coaches annually with the aim of 100% of their coaches delivering ETP within those age groups.

Places are limited and allocated on a first come first served basis. Block 2 and 3 dates will be released at a later date.

Head of Giants Community Trust, Jonathan Timms, commented: "Huddersfield Giants are dedicated to improving the local community game at all levels and our upcoming CPD is an exciting opportunity for coaches to improve their understanding of young players and the ethos of the England Talent Pathway as well as leave with valuable practical coaching resources to aid their coaching. As a community we wish to support all local clubs in becoming England Player Development clubs, a badge they can wear with pride upon completion of all three blocks of England Talent Pathway CPD."
