During the course of this season we have piloted our Community Ambassador programme which has proved to be a huge success.
Our community ambassadors programme which is over half of the way through proved to be successful than our initial thoughts with nine community rugby league clubs participating. We are now on the lookout for a further six community clubs in or around the Wakefield district.
The programme that was launched in December 2015 has seen our community clubs participate in the pre-match festivals on match days along with our halftime community parades. Wildcats fist team players have visited our clubs to host coaching workshops with the junior teams, Daddy cool visits and our coach and player education programme has tripled in attendance this year so far!
Each Ambassador club receive a host of exclusive benefits including free entry to games, signed shirts and balls and priority attendance at club galas, presentation evenings and events. Coaching workshops and much more…
Lead Community Officer, James Stephenson said, “Since we launched the scheme we knew that the programme would improve the relationships we already had with our great community clubs but we didn’t realise how much of an impact it actually has had to date!
“Having seen some of the healthiest rise in player numbers around the district and the sensational feedback we receive regularly from players, parents and club staff it is very humbling to say the least, but the most important thing for me is allowing everyone the opportunity to have a positive experience with us here at Wakefield Wildcats whether you are a player, coach parent or family member. This has been a fantastic year so far on and off the field and we look forward to growing & improving the programme over the remainder of the season and beyond”
We are now in a position to offer this out to a further six community clubs in or around the Wakefield district and if you would like to be part of Wildcats Ambassador programme then please contact me on: firstname.lastname@example.org
