Sponsorship Announcement

The Board of Management are pleased to announce that the Association has recently agreed to terms that will see our relationship with local business Nepean CrossFit extend a further three years. The new sponsorship agreement commenced on 01 November 2016 and comes just a short time after the Board announced that our Major Sponsor Penrith Homemaker Centre had also extended their agreement. The ongoing support of these local organisations is vital in ensuring the longevity and continued success of our Association and its members, and the recent extensions will form a solid foundation for our members to perform both on and off the field in 2017 and beyond.

In announcing the new deal, Chairman Gary Haines said, "The new sponsorship agreement with Nepean CrossFit covers the provision of all Association training from the 2017 season through until 2019 and the training of the Development Squad throughout the same period. In negotiating the proposal, the Board took into account the continuity of the training program, which will allow both parties to plan an effective training program that is designed to suit the needs of all members. Nepean CrossFit employs fully qualified professionals who are committed to ensuring the fitness and well-being of all their clients."

Nepean CrossFit Co-Founder and Coach Dan Olford is no stranger to the physical and mental demands of rugby league officials. Dan is a graded member of the New South Wales Rugby League Referees Association and has compiled an impressive resume of achievements on the field at both a local and representative level. "Nepean CrossFit is proud to continue its partnership with the Penrith Referees Association", Dan said when speaking on the new deal. "We will be facilitating training for both the Development Squad and general membership. From pre-season with the Development Squad and into the season proper with the members, we will provide both indoor and outdoor training sessions and we will open up our six hundred plus square metre facility to these men and women."
