    Student Testimonial

    “I originally trialled for the Under 19s Academy at Leeds Rhinos and got into the squad. I trained there for a few months and the women’s team invited us for a few training sessions. From those training sessions, I was soon promoted to the women’s squad... “My ambition is to continue representing my country at future games. Leeds City College is helping me achieve my goals which I am grateful for.” - Caitlin Beevers, Sport and Exercise Sciences student.
