Bears to deliver Project Rugby webinars

First team players from Bristol Bears and Bristol Bears Women have joined forces with the Community Foundation and Premiership Rugby’s Project Rugby programme to deliver a series of webinars to young people in the city.

Bears stars will cover topics such as ‘rugby and class’, ‘disability and rugby’, ‘black players and rugby’ and ‘women in rugby’ with young people on the club’s Project Rugby scheme.

Community Development Manager, Craig Capel, said: “Project Rugby exists to provide increasing opportunities for young people from disadvantaged communities, Black, Asian and Ethnic Minority groups and disabled people to engage in rugby union and has seen community colleagues work with over 4,000 young players since 2017. 

“European glory, Premiership play offs, five wins from the first six this season, international quality across the squad - Bristol is again now a rugby city with the players and staff contributing positively to the vision of ‘inspiring a community through rugby success.’

“I’m very excited about extending our reach further with the launch of a series of live webinars that will explore the experiences of our players across themes relevant to Project Rugby."

Craig Capel, Community Development Manager

“There is little doubt in my mind that the club is helping the Foundation to reach more people than ever before, even during a global pandemic! 

“I’m very excited about extending our reach further with the launch of a series of live webinars that will explore the experiences of our players across themes relevant to Project Rugby.

“I hope hearing our players talking candidly about both positive and negative experiences they have faced whilst forging a career in our game will inspire even more to get involved and enjoy all there is to enjoy about our magnificent game.”
