Dallaglio RugbyWorks is an intensive, long-term skills development programme based on rugby, through which we aim to get teenagers outside of mainstream education into sustained education, employment or training.
Under Armour and the Dallaglio Foundation
The Dallaglio Foundation are delighted to announce their partnership with Under Armour Teamsports, who will become the official kit supplier for 2015/16.
The Dallaglio Foundation’s RugbyWorks programme engages young people at increased risk of long-term unemployment, criminality and imprisonment, to make them more employable through a three-stage journey designed around the core values of rugby.
Lawrence Dallaglio OBE, Dallaglio Foundation Founder said, "I am delighted to have Under Armour on-board as the kit partner for my charity; a good quality, professional kit to keep our coaches equipped to do their job.”
Under Armour Teamsports is tasked with taking the Brand to grassroots sports and the RugbyWorks programme that the Foundation offers typifies that ethos. The kit supplied is built for performance, with efficient sweat–wicking capabilities and a tight stretch fit for comfort and durability.
Former England Rugby Captain and 2003 World Cup winner Dallaglio set up the Dallaglio Foundation in 2009 with a core objective of supporting disengaged young people become more employable through the power of rugby.
Damian Cooper, MD UA Teamsports said, “Under Armour Teamsports are excited to partner up with the Dallaglio Foundation for 2015-16. Lawrence is one of the true icons of British Sport and one of the outstanding figures in England Rugby history; it is a real privilege for us to have him as a UA Teamsports Ambassador. It is important for us to support the great work they do with disengaged young people in Pupil Referral Unit’s throughout the UK.”
Rachel Roxburgh, Dallaglio Foundation CEO added, "As a charity, having Under Armour believe in the work we do using the game of rugby to help disengaged young people gain confidence, belief and become more employable, is invaluable. We’re thrilled to be entering this partnership.”
