Leeds Rhinos Foundation work hard to support local Community Clubs and rugby at grass roots level. Through this commitment we have developed strong links with the city’s Community Clubs who are all now part of our Club Ambassador Scheme.

Winter Touch Rugby

The Leeds Rhinos Club Ambassadors Scheme, facilitated by Leeds Rhinos Foundation, is now in its eigth year. The Scheme builds on engaging the community clubs of Leeds and District, empowering them to create community cohesion for the betterment of Rugby League. The Scheme meets monthly and 35 clubs are now signed up.

Engagement includes; Coach Education, rugby events, and matchday experiences at Leeds Rhinos games, rewards to raise funds, cashback on Rhinos season memberships, player appearances and support with regards growing player base at all age groups.

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.
