New goals for Hull City Tigers Trust sport and wellbeing scheme
HULL: New goals are being set for a 20-strong group taking part in a Hull City Tigers Trust sport and wellbeing scheme.
The group have general health, mental health, substance abuse and social problems and will be assessed over a six-month period, during which they will take part in sports and study activities with the University of Hull.
The project starts today at the university's sports testing facilities, where sports science experts will gather evidence and study the effects on each individual.
They will be tested in three stages, starting with blood, heart rate, flexibility, height, weight, lung function and grip strength.

When the six months are up, they will be tested again using the same set of tests to measure their improvements.
The fitness programme is part of the Tigers Trust's Imagine Your Goals initiative, and the group will be supervised by community health and wellbeing officer Chris Bloede.
He said: "We will also work with them to develop practical skills such as CV writing and interview techniques and hear guest speakers on sport and health subjects."
• Thrill-seekers are being urged to sign up for a charity zipwire across the KC Stadium.
The event is taking place at the stadium on May 27 to raise funds for Dove House Hospice.
