As part of the drive to support putting kids first, Old Mutual Wealth has created green Kids First laces. These will be included in the resource packs sent out to all clubs and schools that sign up to the Old Mutual Wealth Kids First Pledge.

How does it work?

The green laces help to recognise and reward, on a weekly basis, the players in U7-U13 Age Grades who are demonstrating rugby union’s core values; teamwork, respect, enjoyment, discipline & sportsmanship. Here’s how you can use them:

1. Identify a player aged 6 – 13 who demonstrates rugby unions core values, working in conjunction with other coaches/teachers at your club/school

2. Reward them with a pair of green laces and a player certificate, explaining how they have demonstrated rugby unions core values

3. Broadcast this players achievements using the ‘clubhouse’ poster and share on social media using #OMWKidsFirst

This initiative should be a positive reward for the kids and will help you raise awareness of what your club or school is doing to inspire a lifelong bond with our sport.

Remember, to receive a resource pack clubs and schools must have taken the Old Mutual Wealth Kids First pledge, all clubs and schools can sign up.

Ask your Club Chairman or Head Teacher to register their details.
