Links with Black Swans
Coventry Bears and Bears in the Community CIC are proud to have strong links with Black Swans RLFC, a recently formed Junior Rugby League Club based in Pershore, Worcestershire. The coaches, led by Stuart Hood, work hard to provide opportunities to local children from under 9's all the way up to under 15's at Pershore Rugby, Mill Lane Wyre Piddle Nr Pershore Worcestershire WR10 2JF. The opportunities provided include festivals and camps throughout the summer of 2018, which children from any location are welcome to attend. Please see the exciting school holiday rugby camps, festivals and lots more information about the club by visiting the website www.blackswansrlfc.com
The Bears' Community Section is a Community Interest Company operated under the name 'Bears in the Community CIC'. This not for profit organisation has the aim of promoting Rugby League opportunities to citizens of Coventry and beyond, of any age and ability or experience, to raise the profile of Rugby League in the non-traditional area of the sport. We are very proud to be supported by McDonalds in this endeavour.
Our community strategy is based upon 4 pillars of development.
CREATE A LEGACY
We are aiming to increase participation in not only rugby league but all sports and believe that through this peoples lives can be enriched and children can develop better skills and well being for their future. Through people participating in one of our community programmes we want make a positive impact to the community of Coventry and Warwickshire.
Through further engagement we want to give people the opportunity to watch more sport and indeed rugby league with Coventry Bears. We want to give people the opportunity to be part of a club and community that can not only help create a professional pathway but allow people to enjoy the sport at all levels as a spectator or volunteer.
Improving our club and our standards is core to becoming better at what we do and what we can offer. We want to constantly challenge ourselves to improve and more forward in the future.
Create a legacy
We want to create a legacy and create history so we can look back and see that we have made a difference and been successful. We also want to provide a pathway from a child playing touch rugby in primary school in Coventry right through to playing for Coventry Bears full professional team and beyond, perhaps Super League or NFL!
Our motto is simple, it is "in this together" as we believe that if everyone is moving forward together then success will follow and take care of itself!
