November has seen its share of sports teams visiting the centre with both the Blackburn Rovers first team squad visiting on Monday November 10th and Manchester City Ladies Elite Development Squad on Wednesday 12th respectively.

Both squads came for some innovative team bonding at Challenge 4 Change and both saw the benefits.

We have developed a specific offer for football teams. Our coaches are experienced, fully qualified ex-sports professionals and our sessions have received excellent feedback.

Gary Bowyer, the Blackburn Rovers manager said: “The session we had at Challenge 4 Change was excellent. We are always looking for that extra “something” that will give us the advantage over the other teams in the division, which is why we chose Challenge 4 Change. The coaches were excellent at emphasising the importance of teamwork and the challenges they set ensured that the lads had a lot of fun but also needed to work together as a team to succeed. We will be using Challenge 4 Change again as part of our quest to continually improve. And  its an added bonus that  Challenge 4 Change is a  charity and every booking  made with them means they can help more disadvantaged people in the community!”

Gary Bowyer also gave credit to the Challenge 4 Change experience in his post match interview with Radio Lancashire after Rovers had survived with 10 men to beat Leeds United 2-1 in the game which followed their session at Challenge 4 Change.

David Puro, Coach of Manchester City Ladies Elite Development Squad said: “Chris and Dennis were really engaging and made the challenges thought provoking yet fun and enjoyable. Although there was no ball involved, the session brought out all the qualities I like to see in my team. There were elements of creativity, problem solving, team work, communication and leadership. I believe that personal development comes from stepping outside one’s comfort zone and I was really proud to see the girls ‘step up’ to all the different situations individually and as a group. The team really bonded through the session and now have a trust in one another that can only be good for when we next step on the field. I can’t thank the challenge4change guys expertise and attention to detail enough and highly recommend the experience to sports teams, business organisations, schools, everyone!! Thank You”!

Our sessions are 3 hours long for a squad of up to 25.
