Nelson schools receive LeslieRugby sponsorships
Recently 5 children from Nelson schools were selected to receive CrestClean Principal’s Sponsorships for the LeslieRugby Coaching Clinic held on 2nd May at Nelson College, Nelson.
The children had a great day, and they participated very well, learning new skills from a team of experienced trainers.
Over the last couple of months CrestClean has sent more than 60 ‘rugby mad’ kids along to LeslieRugby Coaching Clinics that were held around New Zealand. As well as sponsoring the whole series, CrestClean provided scholarships for deserving junior rugby players who would otherwise have not been able to attend.
LeslieRugby coaching clinics focus on teaching core rugby skills and techniques to junior rugby players. The goal of the Nelson coaching clinics is to learn new and improve existing skills; and to see how to correctly practice skills and drills until they are mastered. Participants enjoy a fun and safe day of rugby action, and are each given a T-Shirt, a ball and a photo of themselves in action on the day.
We think its great to encourage Kiwi kids to excel in sport, and so far the coaching clinics have attracted rave reviews from the kids and parents. Participating schools have also been very pleased to award the sponsorships to their keenest young rugby players.
