Calderdale College has secured a long standing partnerships with Halifax RLFC following the opening of state-of-the-art gym.

The club currently trains at the Inspire Centre at the Calderdale College three times a week and both the Strength and Conditioning Coach, Andy Hollyehead and club Captain, Scott Murrell are also on hand to coach the College’s Rugby Centre of Excellence players.

The Inspire Centre now boasts an excellent high performance athlete gym which is open to clubs, students and the local community. Both the College and Fax have part funded this refurbishment

Luke Ambler, Halifax Rugby League Football Club player said: “The Inspire Centre facility has been outstanding; coming to the Inspire Centre has brought the team to the next level.

“We are all training in one place; we have a first class gym that most super league clubs won’t even have, the interactive classroom facilities for video analysis, the double sports hall which we can use for indoor wrestling or indoor skills and then we go outside to the 3G pitch and new grass pitch, enabling us to train in any condition.”
