Young Rugby Ambassador’s Programme

Eccles RFC has been invited to nominate young people aged 16 to 20 for the Young Rugby Ambassador’s programme. This is a very exciting opportunity for young people from our club to be involved in the game at a new level and hopefully give them skills that will be of great benefit to both them and our club in the future.

The main commitments of the role of a Young Rugby Ambassador are to,

  • Arrange a series of meetings/briefings/social evenings at the club to communicate the latest news on RWC 2015 with information provided by ER2015 and RFU.
  • Bring alive the RFU lead up and legacy strand on cultural engagement by getting people in their local community talking about Rugby through the use of Media.
  • Support the RFU lead up and legacy strand on bringing 16-24 year old players with each ambassador aiming to get two 16-24 year olds from their community playing rugby.

If you want to discuss this further or nominate yourself, contact Heather Thorpe.
