WWPIS are excited to be working with Newcastle United Academy.
After months of work behind the scenes, WWPIS content will be shared with all members of the academy as well as a number of live and virtual workshops to help support parents on their football academy journey.
WWPIS are expanding their work this season throughout football with the recent announcement of a partnership with League Football Education and continuing their work with Wolverhampton Wanderers, a project that started so positively at the end of last season.
CEO Gordon MacLelland said, ‘This is really exciting for us. I love our work in football having experienced the early stages of the environment with my own child and the many positives as well as the challenges that it can bring as a parent.
We are thrilled to be working with one of the great football clubs and having been to watch games at the academy as well as visiting St James Park on a number of occasions, I cannot wait to share our enthusiasm and passion with such a great footballing community.’
Steve Swinyard, Head of Safeguarding & Welfare at Newcastle United, said, ‘We are really excited to be working alongside Working with Parents in Sport. Parents are such a vital part of any young player’s support network, and we recognise being the parent of a young athlete can come with a number of questions. By working with Working with Parents in Sport we hope we can offer engaging content and support that will help parents and be as supportive as possible.’
Players and parents of Newcastle United Academy can expect to see content shared with them throughout the upcoming season.
