The Featherstone Rovers Ambassadors includes a variety of different activities and exclusive extras which include:
Coach the Coach Workshops
The Free event will run throughout the year by the Featherstone Rovers Community Team including guest sessions with the Rovers coaching staff. The main focuses of the session are to give coaches a different outlook on the different factors within Rugby League and give an insight into the professional coaching procedures used to achieve success.
Each club team will choose a Rovers 1st Team player to adopt and on the day your team play a curtain raiser your chosen player will be waiting for a meet and greet. Your chosen player will also attend your clubs presentation evening (Subject to availability & player appearance policy).
Pre-Match Stadium Tours
On game day before your pre-match training session your team will receive a tour of the Big Fellas Stadium, a chance to see all the behind the scenes facilities and a chance to visit the players dressing room and our brand new elite training facility, where you can take pictures and see your favourite players shirts waiting to be worn.
Throughout the year you will be invited down to the Big Fellas Stadium for an education night which will be run by a member of the 1st team squad and the Rovers community team, the focus of this education night is to give an insight into professional player’s health & active lifestyles. It will be a chance to show your team what they can achieve if they not only look after themselves on the pitch but off it as well and hopefully for your team to gain some invaluable knowledge.
If you have already taken part in your education evening then we will invite you to use our new Centre of Excellence for one of your training sessions. Run by yourselves this give your coaches and kids chance to train within a professional environment.
Pre-Match Training Session & Half Time Game (Guard of Honour & Signed Ball)
On your chosen game day the Featherstone Rovers community team will run a pre-match fun and games training session, followed by a game at half time. The winning team at half time will be presented with a trophy and all participants will take home a certificate for taking part. Both teams on the day will make the guard of honour for the 1st team game and receive a signed ball to display within your clubhouse.
