vRugby: volunteers wanted

More information on the vRugby initiative - the new programme designed to use young volunteers to help spread the game.

It seems to be very early days yet. In Hertfordshire we have a "County Activator" in place - Sam Fulling at Saracens. The next stage will be the appointment of seven volunteer "Club Activators", aged 16-24, each of whom (with a team of four other volunteers) will run on a project designed to benefit their club. The chosen project will need to match one of four "themes"...
  • vRugby Fun: increasing participation and introducing rugby to people who may not have experienced it before
  • vRugby Life: delivering healthy lifestyle messages using the rugby ethos
  • vRugby Cash: fundraising
  • vRugby Force: mini club makeovers 
... but will otherwise be more or less of their (and their club's) choice. In practice this might mean running projects to increase participation (such as schools rugby festival or similar), performance (coaching), fundraising; or improving facilities. In return, as well as helping their club, the volunteers will get all expenses paid, full training, the chance to develop all kinds of project management and other skills, and free branded clothing.

Club activators are being sought now - so is anyone interested? If so please get back to me or Mike asap so we can look at how we might use this scheme to benefit our club and the wider game.
