REGISTRATION DAY PROVES TO BE CHILDS PLAY FOR ROVERS WITH THE HELP OF O2/NSPCC AND STATE OF MIND
Woolston Rovers Rugby League Club recently held their Annual Club Registration Day at Monks Sports Club and what a resounding success it proved to be with well over 200 Junior, Youth and Open Age players coming along to sign up for the 2017 season.
As well as getting the players signed up, the day also saw the new link up with 02/NSPCC and State of Mind launched and that proved to be a tremendous success. O’Neills Irish International Sports Company were also in attendance so that all players could get measured up for the new campaign.
Club PRO Dave Whalley explained, “This was by far our best registration day; the new contacts that we have this year are real game changers for us and we are all extremely excited at the impact that it will have on the club. To have O2/NSPCC and State of Mind coming on board with us has given everybody at the club a boost.”
O2s Jo Challoner heaped praise on the Woolston club “It was a busy but fun time for team O2 at the registration day. It was fantastic to have the opportunity to speak with so many parents about how we can help keep kids safe online. This is just the start of our relationship which both parties are keen to develop; make sure you keep your eye out for our Tech Tutorials following soon in Woolston.”
Steph McNamee, who is the 02 Online Safety Advisor added, “I loved being part of the Woolston Rovers Registration Day! There was a real community feeling and it was great to help the parents and carers with the Online Safety quiz as it gave us the opportunity to talk about the Apps their kids are already using, or might use in future when they are online.”
State of Mind formally began their new partnership with Rovers and former players Danny Sculthorpe, Phil Veivers and Will Stringer along with founder Dr Phil Cooper were on hand with mental fitness cards and stress balls for new players registering for the new season. Dr Cooper said, “Mental fitness issues tend to begin before reaching adulthood so the mentally fitter the players are as they grow up then that can potentially reduce the likelihood of difficulties in adulthood. We are delighted to be involved with such a forward thinking Community Club and we will be working very closely with them as the season progresses.”
