Offload is a men’s mental fitness and wellbeing project run by Featherstone Rovers Foundation in partnership with RL Cares. Funded by the Coalfield Regeneration Trust, Offload is helping challenge how the sporting world tackles issues such as depression and anxiety, and is already receiving widespread acclaim for its work in Lancashire. Men are invited to come behind the scenes of their home team for 6 fixtures and find out how players, coaches and referees stay mentally strong as well as physically fit. Designed and delivered with the help of State of Mind and other agencies, Offload is open to all men aged 16 and over. Men meet and talk with current and former professional players to learn techniques that Rugby League clubs use to manage the mental and physical fitness of players.
