Although we have empowered most Leeds Clubs, the backbone our scheme for the last five years, we always want to grow and increase our assistance to more clubs. Recently we have recruited Dewsbury/Batley area clubs and they are enhancing the network within the scheme for the good of all.
We are all very proud of the scheme and in 2015 we are offering a similar scheme to other areas of Yorkshire and country wide, already signing up clubs from Brentwood, Brotherton, Catterick, Buxton, Gateshead and the York area, with clubs throughout the country showing an interest in our support.
The biggest highlight of the Club Ambassador Scheme must be the flag ship event; The Dick Gibson Club Ambassadors Festival of Rugby League. Over 700 players from age groups 7s to 11s took part in a Festival of Rugby at the Leeds Rugby Training Ground, culminating in an excellent day, facilitated by the Leeds Rhinos Foundation staff and the clubs themselves.
One of the outcomes being £300 each will go back into the clubs for much needed funds.
The Club Ambassadors Scheme will continue to be very much part of Rugby League and in partnership we will grow the Scheme with your valued assistance.
Our Ambassador clubs are:
Hunslet Club Parkside
North Leeds Leopards
West Yorkshire Wolves
