Supporting existing organisations and nurturing new ones is a key component of the community development initiatives in each LWP community. For the third year in a row, Huntlee is proud to be sponsoring the Greta Branxton Colts Rugby League Club.
Club President, Alex Kowalski, said the Colts are thrilled to have Huntlee back on board sponsoring the club and its community for the 2018 season.
“Without our sponsors, we wouldn’t be able to build the club as much as we have,” said Alex.
“In 2018, we are anticipating having 20 teams in total. We’ll have junior teams from Under 6s to Under 17s, including three Girls League Tag teams entering the Maitland and District Junior Rugby League/Hunter Valley Combined and Hunter Valley Junior Rugby League Competitions. And we’ll have four grade sides in the Hunter Valley Group 21 Competition, including U18s, Ladies League Tag, Reserve Grade and First Grade.
“Sponsorship from organisations such as Huntlee is helping shape the future of young girls and boys of the Greta Branxton and wider community and helping create healthy, respectable contributing members of society.
“I would like to personally thank Huntlee for their long term sponsorship of the Greta Branxton Colts and hope we can continue this valued relationship now and into the future.”
“Without the generous sponsorship of organisations like Huntlee, we wouldn’t be able to supply our teams, from under 6s to First Grade, with training gear and playing gear. And we couldn’t offer our volunteer coaches coaching and development courses to assist them in becoming competent and skilled within their roles.
“Sponsorship creates buzz and discussion within the community. It gives our kids the opportunity to take part in valuable coaching clinics and helps keep the cost of our junior registration fee the lowest in the Hunter Valley.
“Without sponsorship, the Greta Branxton Community wouldn’t have a club and without a club we wouldn’t be able to offer the game of rugby league as a fun and interactive approach to sport which is vital to the health and well being of everyone involved. Kids get to make new friends, enjoy the outdoors and, most of all, have the opportunity to participate in a team sport which, studies have proven, improves their educational outcomes.
