In the absence of its usual sessions due to the COVID-19 outbreak, Preston North End Community and Education Trust will begin holding virtual webinar sessions in place of its usual provisions next week.
Sessions will allow members to reunite on a remote basis by following sessions on the Community and Education Trust’s new YouTube channel to follow live workouts and physical activity sessions.
Sessions will cater for the development centre, Sporting Memories, PNE Forces, PNECET Wildcats, walking football, FIT fans, PL Kicks and Every Player Counts groups.
Lasting approximately 15 minutes, sessions have been specifically tailored to certain target groups but anyone is welcome to join in any of the sessions.
Find below a full timetable of planned events taking place both morning and afternoon, every day of the working week from Monday 30th March 2020.

Speaking of the live PNECET physical activity session timetable, Inclusion Manager Melissa Brown said: “The PNECET Inclusion team have come up with the idea to have a physical activity timetable, where you will find the familiar faces of your coaches delivering ten to 15-minute sessions live throughout the week.
“Anyone is welcome to join in, with the sessions being tailored specifically to target groups. This is a fantastic way to keep the community and our participants physically and mentally fit during this challenging time.”
The Trust have also been releasing a series of daily challenges on social media to engage existing and new participants in physical activity. Follow PNECET on Twitter @pnecommunity and on Facebook and Instagram @PNECET to find more daily challenges.
Sessions will be premiered via the Trust's Facebook page, meaning sessions can be viewed live, but will also remain accessible thereafter for those unable to take part at the specified time and date.
