Saints In The Community

SAINTS were out and about at the end of 2015 visiting community clubs for their end of season awards.

Players made around 65 appearances in November and December to support the local rugby league community as well as meeting fans in the Saints Superstore.

Boots also helped proceedings at cubs and under 8s presentations around the borough.

Saints takes its role in the town and sport very seriously and are more than happy to give back to its young supporters at their clubs.

Because together, we have strength in numbers.

Saints Rugby League Development Officer, Steve Leonard, said: “Saints and the other clubs and associations that form the St Helens and Merseyside rugby league community are the envy of the rest of the rugby league world.

“Firstly, we ensure that as a Community we provide a safe and fun environment for our children to play our sport. We create a clear pathway for our children and volunteers to go as far as their talent and dedication take them.

“We provide training and opportunities for all our volunteers, and in turn they provide this safe Community hub in which our children thrive.

“As a collective, we ensure every opportunity to bring in funding, training and improvements to our own hub is shared and thus improve and swell the hubs that make up our collective.”

He continued: “As the professional club within the St Helens and Merseyside rugby league community it is important that we play our part and lead on a number of initiatives.

“To that end we have brought in house most of the training requirements needed by all the partners – for example the Level 1 and 2 coach’s courses are delivered at our Cowley International College training facility at – to provide a local base for ease of access delivered by our own coaches. Safeguarding and First Aid courses are also delivered at Langtree Park.

“The players who come to our club soon realise how our rugby league community pulls together. The players who have come through the ranks from within the community talk of how warm the feeling around the clubs in the area is and how well a reception they receive at presentation evenings.

“Experiencing the warm embrace of the community makes it easier for the players to understand that it’s not only the professional club they are representing every time they pull on the Red V, it’s all the members of the best and most well respected rugby league communities in our game.

“This is why we will always go out to our community.”
