Ellie Greatorex Flt Lt OC AFCO Gloucester said, "'We are thrilled to be able to work with Gloucester Rugby Club on this project. The RAF is committed to helping develop youth sport in the local community but this project adds something extra.It enables those involved to develop their leadership and teamwork skills which are an essential part of the RAF ethos."
The scheme has already taken place in Winchcombe School and Pittville School and has proved to be a success with over 40 students getting involved. Those that have taken part are then invited to events throughout the season to extend their leadership skills by taking part in coaching sessions, tournaments, stadium tours and much more.
A further eight schools will benefit from the programme over the coming months, for more information about the programme please contact the Community Department on 0871 871 8781 option 7*
