Rugby ATL Partners with Spratlin & Son Construction
Building the Future through Youth Rugby
(Marietta, GA: Monday July 19th- 2:00 PM) Rugby ATL has partnered with Spratlin & Son Construction to bolster the development of our communities’ youth through rugby.
Spratlin & Son’s focus on youth development starts with their creative initiative to incentivise our youth to get active and play rugby. Through the partnership, FREE tickets to Major League Rugby matches in Atlanta are provided to participants in Rugby ATL’s “Friday Night Youth Sessions,” a 1-hour rugby practice for kids from 5-19 years of age. These sessions are designed to develop the lifelong skills of teamwork, communication and friendships. Additionally, youth who participate in 12 of the remaining 20 sessions in 2021, will receive a FREE season ticket to Rugby ATL in 2022. The sessions are run by professional rugby players from both Major League Rugby and the Women’s Premier League, who are fully equipped to develop those who participate regardless of their skill level.
Mike Cartner and Jim Gaine’s commitment to providing opportunities for our youth to play active team sports supports one of three main priorities for Rugby ATL. Their commitment to our shared PACE values was at the forefront of the partnership agreement and Rugby ATL will proudly wear the Spratlin & Son Construction logo on the top back of their jersey next Saturday night in the Eastern Conference Finals vs. Rugby United New York.
“Spratlin & Son Construction is proud to support Rugby ATL in their pursuit of the Major League Rugby Championship and building youth rugby throughout the region. Mike Cartner and I forged our friendship on the rugby pitch as leaders of the Clemson University Rugby team more than 25 years ago. Our partnership at Spratlin & Son is based on the same high quality work, dedication to our team and commitment to those we serve. Like rugby, we value our culture, history and commitment to excellence,” said Jim Gaine.
Since 1952, Spratlin & Son Construction has been a leader in the commercial construction industry throughout Georgia and South Carolina. Building the future while restoring the past is reflected in our wide ranging portfolio from award winning state of the art fire stations, cyber training facilities and rehabilitated historic structures.
“Our commitment to developing leaders of the community through sport starts with our youth, and this partnership will bolster that effort. Mike and Jim are products of rugby and like-minded in our PACE values. We look forward to strategically using our combined presence across the southeast to elevate our youth, the community, and develop the game of rugby,” said Kevin McCorry II, of Rugby ATL.
Rugby ATL entered Major League Rugby in 2018 and began to play and influence the community through their commitment to their PACE core values. (People Development, Accountability, Creating Change & Execution)
