10/03/2020 by admin
Toronto Wolfpack are pleased to announce a partnership with Pro-X Rugby Academy that will see the two joining forces in their goal to further the growth of Rugby League in Canada. The agreement will see Pro-X become one of the Wolfpack’s first Full80 branded teams and organizations.
Offering direction and assistance in the improvement of skills, speed, nutrition, strength and conditioning and much more, Pro-X Rugby Academy is owned and operated by former Welsh rugby league international Stephen Thomas.
Based out of Calgary and with a core aim of creating the next generation of professional Rugby players, Pro-X fits in perfectly with the unique journey the Wolfpack have been on since inception. Pro-X host regular open sessions with both junior and senior athletes while working within schools across Western Canada. Stephen Thomas, founder of the Pro-X Rugby Academy commented:
“Already Pro-X Rugby Academy has helped countless male and female players make provincial and international representative teams in both Rugby League and Rugby Union. Recently, we have seen three athletes earn professional contracts overseas after their participation in the Academy. This partnership with the Wolfpack we see both us and the game of Rugby continue to thrive and we are delighted with the opportunity.”
Jon Pallett, Toronto Wolfpack VP, Commercial added his thoughts on the agreement that will see the Club providing exciting prizes for Pro-X to utilise in raising funds towards their organization:
“We are thrilled to be welcoming Pro-X Rugby Academy into our family and can’t wait to support them in their fantastic endeavors. Our Full80 community program, founded in 2019, will support Pro-X in achieving their goals throughout the year. We also have some exciting events planned with athletes of the Academy, including a potential trip to Toronto for a unique match day experience at Lamport Stadium.”
The Wolfpack will provide support to Pro-X through social media promotions throughout the year, providing merchandise for use by the Academy and it’s athletes, and supporting fundraising efforts.
