Giving access to all weather training facilities and equipment to support players and coaches through all seasons. Working with existing facilities, re -purposing equipment and encouraging cross club initiatives, we want to help those teams who might otherwise struggle to resource their players and coaches.
Rugby is a winter sport suffers with pitches waterlogged, cancelled training and many postponed matches leads to fixture backlogs and extra pressure at exam time. Matt worried about the damaging effect that weeks of missed training sessions and cancelled matches did for the Whanau he was building and the cornerstone for engaging people into rugby.
He saw all weather playing surfaces as a strategic enabler to overcome these challenges, giving people access at all times and realising the benefits from playing more rugby, growing personal development, friendship and team building.
