Caledon Kids Sleepover at Newlands
These young rugby enthusiasts from Swartberg Primary and Overberg Primary in Caledon recently got to camp-out on the fields at Newlands as part of a fun initiative organised by The Caledon Casino, Hotel, Spa, and Entertainment and Club Newlands.
The youngsters pitched tents and participated in exciting activities, including some rugby training, before settling in for the night.
The partnership between The Caledon and Club Newlands forms part of the Tsogo Sun group’s Suncares initiative. Tsogo Sun, The Caledon Casino’s holding company, is the official accommodation supplier to WP Rugby.
The partners regularly host young learners from Western Cape schools on match days at Newlands to give the youngsters an opportunity to experience the action and thrill of live rugby. Many of the youngsters who attend the Match Day Experiences have never seen a live rugby game close up from the stands.
In addition to hosting learners from local schools at rugby games, the partners also host a series of Coaching Clinics for Overberg schools during the year. At the Coaching Clinics, young rugby players get to meet some of their Stormers Rugby heroes and are put through their paces by professional coaches.
Under watchful eyes. The youngsters attending the Newlands Sleepover were under the watchful eye of teachers from the Swartbergand Overberg Primary Schools, representatives of the casino and Club Newlands, and parents.
