Miller Argent’s sponsorship provides Merthyr Schools Rugby Union District Team with new kit and leisurewear

Miller Argent has contributed £1,200 for new playing and leisure kit to Merthyr Schools Rugby Union District Team.

The money contributed by Miller Argent has meant that the district team has been able to afford new playing kit for their regional development teams, as well as leisurewear for the youngsters to wear during training and free time.

The Merthyr Schools Rugby Union District Team selects the best players from the schools in the Merthyr area to compete across Wales with other school district teams. The Merthyr district team recruits from Cyfarthfa, Pen-Y-Dre, Afon Taf and Bishop Hedley high schools and works with rugby clubs within Merthyr Tydfil, such as Cefn Coed, Dowlais, Treharris, and Ynysowen.

 The main aim of the district programme is to maximise young players’ potential on and off the field, by offering them the opportunity to meet and compete with young Welsh athletes from across the country.  The scheme takes advantage of varied and stimulating coaching initiatives, in order to continue long term development at all levels of the game.

 The district team gives the young players nutrition plans, prepares their match fitness with conditioning programmes and motivates the youngsters by setting them achievable goals. These training programmes have been designed in a similar way to those used by the professional rugby players who inspire young athletes to play the sport.
