The Northern Territory Loyal, supporters club who have hosted the Darwin Soccer Schools over the last 3 years have now teamed up with with a major sponsor, Enermech to host a soccer school in the remote Tiwi Islands 50km off the Coast of Darwin at the end of June 2015.
The Rangers coaches will conduct 5 daily camps for Indigenous Australian kids from Monday 29th June on the islands of Melville & Bathurst.
The camps will reach up to 500 children in remote socially deprived areas of the Northern Territory and the coaches will also deliver additional health and lifestyle educational workshops.
Rangers are the first club in the world to run such a programme on the Tiwi Islands and this marks another first for the ever growing Rangers Soccer Schools.
Andrew Power, NT Loyal said, “Enermech & NTLRSC look forward to hosting these camps on the islands. It’s hoped we can bring a mixture of fun education and raise the profile of soccer in a remote part of Australia that will be benefiting from a unique soccer community project for the very first time”
Greg Statt, Rangers Overseas Development Officer, “We have had a great relationship with Andrew and the NT loyal over the last 3 years and this adds another element to our international programme. I personally would like to thank Andrew and everyone at the NT loyal as well as Enermech for getting this exciting new project up and running”
Les Graves, director of Enermech, “Enermech are delighted to support this initiative. We believe sport is an excellent medium for visible and immediate positive impact on young people. To be associated with the global brand that is Rangers FC is also very exciting”
