The future of Rugby League in Auckland is being given a boost by Instant Finance, thanks to its sponsorship of the Junior Educational Training (JETS) Camps for the region’s up and coming young League stars.

Established in 1998, the JETS player development Camps provide targeted elite players, aged between 12 and 14 years, with the opportunity to receive coaching from Warriors coaching staff, first grade players and New Zealand Kiwis. And it’s not all about drills and skills. Players also participate in sessions on goal setting, attitude and leadership.

Some of New Zealand’s most successful League players, including Stacey Jones, Awen Guttenbeil and Monty Betham had their first taste of specialist training at the JETS Camps.

Football Development Manager for Auckland League, Duane Mann, said: “Our goal is to provide an opportunity for young talent to grow and improve, both ‘on and off the field’.

“The Instant Finance JETS Camps help to instil a positive attitude, strong character, work ethic, values and discipline in young players. Our aim is to develop young men who are not only great League players but who can also contribute positively to their communities.”

CEO of Instant Finance, Mr Richard de Lautour, said: “The Instant Finance JETs Camps are a fantastic opportunity for young League players to build on their skills and personal attributes. We are delighted to be involved with sponsoring these Camps and look forward to following the careers of these young players as they develop into the future stars of League in New Zealand.”
