As part of being a student at Salford Red Devils Academy, learners are encouraged to participate and get involved in local sports events hosted by Salford Red Devils Foundation. These events promote community well-being, as well as giving learners the chance to put into practice all that they have learnt in the classroom. 
Recently the foundation hosted a Tag Rugby event for local Salford Primary School children- both Boys and Girls, within Years 5 & 6. The event was targeted at this age group as a way of engaging children in Sport and providing a taster of Rugby as a positive outlet, The Primary Schools competing against each other in Tag Rugby matches to crown an overall winning School.  
Our Academy learners assisted with coaching, refereeing and score keeping and we caught up with a couple of them (when they had a spare moment!) to find out their thoughts on the afternoon.

As a large part of our provision is Education & Sport Academy's for those aged 16-18; we were thrilled when we secured Everton Ladies F.C. and Northern Ireland professional Footballer Simone Magill as an ambassador for Onside Education, and she became the latest guest for our podcast last week. Simone discussed her pathway to achieving her dreams of becoming a professional full-time Footballer, and we made sure to gather some tips for any of our learners who may be looking to emulate her success...

Simone became the first Female Footballer in history from Northern Ireland to play for a Premier League team when she was signed full-time as a forward by Everton Ladies F.C. 
The academic year has begun across all of our partner Education & Sport Academies. We have seen huge growth in enrollment numbers this year- none more so than Salford Red Devils Academy! Off the back of this we headed down to the AJ Bell Stadium to meet our new first year learners at Salford (and of course to say welcome back to the returning second years!), we sat down for a quick chat with some of the newbies to get the lowdown on how they have found the start to their time at the Academy, including the start to the Rugby League season, the education, and THAT first week training camp in Wales.  
We heard from Brody, Lewis, James and Ben - and as they're the stars of this blog we'll let them lead... 
Salford Red Devils second year student Dan Goddard spent this Summer between first and second year taking part in the European U19's Rugby League Championships in Serbia representing Ireland- certainly a busy Summer! We caught up with him to chat all about the Championships, as well as to hear how he is feeling now that he has started his second year at the academy.
