The Aquis Gold Coast Titans are delighted to welcome Telstra Gold Coast as a partner with our successful Junior Rugby League Club Ambassador Program.
Telstra, well-known as the sponsor of the NRL competition, are also keen to provide support at grass roots level and give back to the community.
This means the 22 clubs in our Ambassador program on the Gold Coast and Northern Rivers region, are set to benefit.
Part of their support will see each of the clubs receive a $500 equipment pack which will help enormously with junior club finances, a commitment of $11,000 by Telstra Gold Coast.
The clubs have the option of one of three packs. Their members and players are encouraged to go to Telstra Gold Coast’s Facebook sit to nominate which pack they would like.
Our Ambassador program has been active for several seasons. It involves all the Aquis Titans’ contracted players being allocated to the clubs and attending two training sessions each year and offering further support and interaction, in a personal relationship with the junior league clubs that is so important in connection with league’s grass roots and providing Titans of the future and league fans.
“Telstra Gold Coast and the Gold Coast Titans are passionate about our local community,” said Telstra Gold Coast’s area general manager Darren Clark.
“Being able to partner the Gold Coast Titans and bring this fantastic program to the junior rugby league clubs of the Gold Coast allows us to give something back to the community, to our city and to the game.
“We hope that the access to rugby league’s most elite talent and an injection of new equipment will help each child playing rugby league on the Gold Coast enjoy the game just a little bit more. And who knows, it may just help develop the next crop of rugby league super stars.”
Aquis Gold Coast Titans development manager Darren Robb welcomes the support from Telstra Gold Coast.
“Our Titans Club Ambassador program has worked well by linking our NRL players to local junior rugby league clubs. Now with Telstra on board, it reinforces the great work we are doing in the community and highlights the pathway from a junior footy player to a NRL star.”
