SG Wealth Management is delighted to have become principal sponsors of the Ipswich Rugby Academy at Ipswich RFC. Our support allows the club's volunteer base to continue to develop and improve their coaching and player development for the hundreds of young players from the local community.

As an element of our sponsorship of the newly launched IRFC Academy, we’ve been delighted to recently provide ‘Record of Achievement’ logbooks for all Under 6 to Under 16 club players. 

The Academy concept, designed by Rugby Development Director Marcus Tobin, is a framework of player and coach development to help build on the great work of the club’s coaches to bring consistent and regular improvement on and off the pitch – focusing not only on rugby skills, but also important life lessons and personal skills.

Based around the "3F" principle of Fun, Fitness, and Flawless Fundamentals, players will be able to build up their records of achievement by completing certificated skills awards and learning workshops suitable for their age grades, plus complete modules on ‘tackle safety’, ‘concussion awareness’, nutrition, hydration and healthy living. 

Chief Investment Officer and Director, Henry Gaskin – who is also a player and Vice-Chairman of the club – says, “The folders will be important journals for the young players to help chart their progress on their rugby development journeys.  We hope they will form a wonderful lasting record of their rugby career!”  

We’re really looking forward to seeing how these young players develop!
