The Rugby Support Program

About the Rugby Support Program

Since 1997 the Club has raised and contributed more than 520,000 for local Rugby.

In 2012, the Hawthorne Club introduced the Hawthorne Club Rugby Support Program. The program builds upon its ongoing commitment to support local Ruby and aims to increase Rugby activities for Juniors, increase Club support and further work with Australian Rugby Union and the Hunter Academy of Sport.

Through strategic partnerships with Australian Rugby Union, the Hunter Academy of Sport and Newcastle Hunter Rugby Union, our program will:

  • Improve player pathways
  • Recruit and retain players through talent development
  • Provide programs for referees and coaches
  • Support rugby clubs throughout the region
