Ten South Auckland schools will have the opportunity to train alongside the city’s best rugby players at a MILO Skills and Drills day in South Auckland on Monday 23rd September.
The Auckland ITM Cup team is teaming up with long-time sponsor Nestlé to offer this exciting chance for around 500 young players to learn from their local rugby heroes.
The event will see players lead a number of training drills and fun activities for the primary school children.
“The team always enjoys the MILO Skills and Drill days, they are always a fun way to get involved in the community and give back to the young fans that support us,” said Auckland captain Hadleigh Parkes.
This year, the primary schools that will take part are; Viscount School, Koru Primary School, St Mary McKillop Catholic School, Al-Madinah School, Mangere East Primary School, Sutton Park School, Jean Batten School, Favona Primary School, Southern Cross Campus and Mangere Bridge School.
“At Nestlé, we believe it is very important to encourage all Kiwi children to take part in sport and to be active and eat a healthy diet. Our on-going sponsorship with Auckland Rugby is just one part of the Nestlé Creating Shared Value programme which provides many children with the opportunity to be active in sport,” said Nestlé Corporate Services Manager, Maurice Gunnell.
