The three year partnership, worth a total of $75,000, will provide support to not only the current Canadian Rugby Championship holders, the senior Rock squad, but also to all the Rock’s age group squads, both male and female.

“Rock Rugby is an excellent fit with the sports and education portions of Heroes of Tomorrow,” says Hege Rogno, VP of Canada’s offshore office in Newfoundland. “The Rock Rugby Program has experienced great milestones, including being Canada’s Rugby champions, and we’re proud to be part of this success.”

Throughout their worldwide operations, Statoil have supported talented young people via sponsorships under their Heroes of Tomorrow programme. Rock Rugby helps develop heroes through outreach programs that educate our community’s youth in active lifestyles, fitness, self-esteem and health. It provides youth with competitive experiences in a team environment, which builds trust, confidence and responsibility. 

Rick Graham, Honorary Manager for The Rock Senior Men’s team is excited about the opportunities this sponsorship provides for its players and the community. “We are delighted to have Statoil as our new partner. Our values are very much aligned in the areas of teamwork, fitness, self-esteem and healthy living.”
