Earlier this year, Leeds Rhinos launched a pioneering group to work with the club to maximise youth engagement and ensure the Rhinos stay at the forefront of youth culture.

The Junior Rhinos Trendsetters consists of fourteen children aged 7-13 and includes a mixture of Season Members, match attendees and all-round Rugby League enthusiasts. The application process, which took place back in May, encouraged junior fans to submit a video application explaining how they could help Leeds Rhinos with the new initiative. The newly-formed group now meet every 6-8 weeks to discuss their experiences as a Leeds Rhinos fan and inform the club on how the youth offering can be made even better.

The first meeting hosted by Youth Marketing Manager, Grace Cooper, and Leeds Rhinos very own Ashton Golding, focused on the new 2019 Junior Memberships. The Trendsetters worked together to come up with their ideal membership gift pack and used the opportunity to explain what they want to see and do at events like Ronnie’s Club Summer Party and the annual Captain’s Club ‘Meet the Players’ event. The insight gained at the first meeting played a huge part in shaping the 2019 Junior Membership packs, which are due to be delivered in time for Christmas 2019.

Looking forward to next season, the Trendsetters will play a key role in decisions relating to match day entertainment, as the Club look to make the most of the brand-new facilities, following the £43 million re-development at Emerald Headingley Stadium.

If you know a young Rhinos fan who would love to get their hands on a Trendsetters-inspired Junior Rhinos gift pack ahead of next season, sign them up for a 2019 Junior Season Membership. Starting from just £50, Junior Season Membership includes entry to every single home and away League game, as well as the gift pack filled with brand-new and exclusive Rhinos presents perfect for all young fans aged 3-16.
