We teamed up with the Lucozade Sport Kit-Out Project to give away £3000-worth of kit, plus expert nutrition and training advice. Meet our winners...
WE WERE overwhelmed with interest from our amateur readers when we announced that we were teaming up with Lucozade Sport’s Kit-Out Project at the start of this season. The scheme is designed to give away kit and training equipment to grass-roots clubs, from match-day and training strips customised in the club’s colours, to balls and bibs, water bottles and ladders to help make those training sessions count. When Rugby World heard about the project, we had to get involved, so we added the Zero to Hero element, to give the club with the most codes who entered our competition £3000-worth of additional kit, gear, and training and nutrition advice from the pros.
Our winners, Parmiter’s School in Hertfordshire, are leading a leading light for schools rugby in the state sector, with the younger pupils desperate to get involved in their successful first XV, in favour of joining the football ranks.
Acting Head of PE and Games Bradley Hughes said: “Our 1st XV has been pivotal over the last few years as we have looked to develop rugby at the school. We have created an environment where students are extremely proud to represent our 1st XV and they provide exceptional role models to our younger students, often leading training sessions for our younger boys.”
Don’t miss the January edition of Rugby World to see what Parmiter’s first XV learned when we took an IRB coach and Lucozade sports scientist down to put them through their paces! The magazine goes on sale on Tuesday 2 December.
