The Leeds Rhinos Junior Club Ambassador Scheme is run by our official charity, Leeds Rhinos Foundation. Through a commitment to supporting the game at grassroots level we have developed strong links with the city’s Community Clubs.
Engagement includes Coach Education, Rugby Events, Club Ambassadors Awards, Club Ambassadors Festivals of Rugby, Match Day Experiences at the Emerald Headingley Stadium, Player Appearances, Coaching Workshops to help upskill community club coaches and support to help grow participants at all levels.
We have created an education hub to help with Coaching Qualifications, Funding, Mental Health & Resilience Development, First Aid, Nutrition, and a Collective Buying Scheme. Our programmes also set out to improving club environments, to enhance these areas we endorse and support the Rhinos Respect Campaign, yet another benefit of working with us.
Leeds Rhinos Foundation have worked with all LS postcode clubs in Leeds for over 10 years and the charity have expanded their reach beyond the city, with clubs from Dewsbury, Batley, Halifax, Keighley, Stanley, Brotherton and the York areas now engaging with our Junior Club Ambassador Scheme.
One of the highlights of our Leeds Rhinos Junior Club Ambassador Scheme is our flagship event; The Dick Gibson Club Ambassadors Festival of Rugby League. Over 700 players from age groups U7s to U11s take part in the annual festival at the Leeds Rugby Kirkstall Training Ground. Over the past two years we have added another Festival of Rugby catering for the older age groups and girls, with attendances of over 300 players.
We are constantly looking to enhance our Junior Club Ambassadors Scheme to improve our working relationships and to create more benefits for our members.
