Bridge the Gap Grant Update – Lindsay Rugby Club

On behalf of the Board of Directors, Members and Volunteers of the Lindsay
Rugby Football Club, we would like to offer our sincere thanks for your support of youth
rugby, in the form of the $6000 award, through the Bridge The Gap Youth Rugby Grant.
This grant money will used to fund youth rugby programs in the City of Kawartha Lakes.
In 2014, we initiated a youth Flag Rugby House League for boys and girls. We ran
sessions in May and August of 2014, involving over 80 youth. Funds from the Bridge
The Gap Youth Rugby Grant will be used to cover the cost of certifying coaches,
equipment, uniforms and compensation for coaches and referees. We hope that this
successful program will be bigger and better next year. We are also exploring
opportunities to partner with local public schools to get more youth involved in flag

Support from the Canadian Rugby Foundation and other community partners has made
this years program possible and will allow us to introduce the great game of rugby to
area youth in coming years.

Thanks again for your support.

Rob Brouwer
