The Ospreys have confirmed details of the new-look Kids Club, which has undergone an overhaul ahead of its relaunch for 2010.
With the cost of membership frozen at just £10, Kids Club members will enjoy a host of benefits, including a new quarterly newsletter that will feature exclusive quizzes and competitions, along with birthday messages, player profiles and Ospreys information.
In addition, members will receive a Kids Club membership card that gives them 10 per cent discount at the Ospreys Superstore and for all coaching camps run by the Community Department throughout the calendar year. As well as an exclusive Ospreys poster, every member will also receive a card on their birthday, signed by their favourite player.
Another new addition to the Kids Club package this year will see all members going into a regular draw ahead of each home game, to win the chance to be mascot for the day and lead the team out at the Liberty Stadium.
Ospreys Managing Director, Roger Blyth said that the Kids Club is an important part of the Ospreys set-up:
I can't stress enough how important to the Ospreys our younger supporters are. I know it gets said a lot but they really are the future of this region and we want to do everything we can to encourage them to develop a lifelong passion for the Ospreys. We have shown this in the season-ticket packages we put together in the summer, and with the New Year Six Pack deal, which offer youngsters the chance to watch the Ospreys for free, and I think that the relaunched Kids Club follows on from this and offers them a real chance to get closer to the Ospreys for just £10.
I've no doubt that the package will prove to be extremely popular with youngsters in Ospreylia, and there will be a great response to the new package. Very few kids will ever be fortunate enough to pull on the shirt and play for the Ospreys, but everyone in the region can be an Osprey, whether you are an administrator, coach, referee or fan.
Ospreys star Shane Williams added:
It's vital that we encourage youngsters in the region to show their support for the Ospreys. It's clear to see when the team runs out at the Liberty Stadium on a match-day that the Family Stand is always packed with kids enjoying cheering the Ospreys on, which shows that we are heading in the right direction. The Kids Club has always proved popular, and I'm sure that will be the case again this year, as it offers real value for money for younger fans, who experience tells me can't get enough of the Ospreys. Hopefully, the children who sign up for it will go on to be Ospreys for life!
