Treble activates Captain’s Run and War Room Experience for Cell C

On Friday, 7 May, Club Newlands invited their valued sponsor, Cell C, to the inner sanctum of the DHL Stormers, before their big game against the Brumbies at DHL Newlands.

Cell C and their guests were invited to enjoy a unique occasion that is only available to a few very special people.

They attended the DHL Stormers Captain’s Run. This is the final team training session, normally held a day before kick-off. It is held behind closed doors – not open to the public, nor the media. The Captain decides which specific drills he would like to finesse, while the coaching staff simply looks in, to ensure that everything runs smoothly.

Chippie, the DHL Stormers team manager, made a special appearance and gave the esteemed guests insight into what truly happens behind the scenes when managing a rugby team.

Thereafter, they were invited to join the DHL Stormers War Room experience. This is a unique opportunity where the DHL Stormers head coach, Allister Coetzee, takes you through his thoughts before the big game, and takes the time to give you insight into his plans for such a major game.

We would like to thank Cell C for their continued support of Club Newlands, and we sincerely hope that they enjoyed this incredible and unique experience.

Treble Group and Club Newlands activate the Annual Club Newlands Sleepover

Over 350 young DHL Stormers supporters (and their moms and dads) descended on DHL Newlands for the annual DHL Club Newlands Sleepover. The event gave Club Newlands members and supporters the opportunity to sleep on the hallowed turf of the DHL Newlands pitch whilst enjoying some amazing activities throughout the evening.

The event kicked off in fine style with the children participating in a coaching clinic with members of the DHL Stormers squad and the WPRU development coaches. The players put the boys (and a few girls) through their paces teaching them valuable skills such as running from depth and the art of the tackle. The clinic proved not only to be very educational, but loads of fun for all those who were there.

After the clinic the entire group received rugby balls, which was signed by the DHL Stormers in attendance.

With the DHL Stormers’ players making their bow; it was time to get ready for a fun-filled evening ahead. Dad’s got busy putting their tents up while the kids played on the field with their new Club Newlands Rugby balls. It was then time to eat with Spur, kindly providing all the juniors with burgers as part of a tasty dinner. The father’s had to work a little bit harder for their dinner, but only as much as cooking their Checkers meat packs on the braai’s provided. The evening continued with loads of entertainment .No one was left bored on this evening and fun was had right up to bedtime.

After a very long night, the families were woken to a hearty breakfast provided by Pro Nutro. It was then, unfortunately time for everyone to pack up their tents, make their way through the famous Newlands tunnel to collect their goodie bags and head home after what was another brilliant Sleepover at the famous old stadium.

A big thank you must go out to the our sponsors; DHL, Landrover, Momentum, Adidas, Castle, Oudemolen, Powerade, Spur, Ola, PostNet, Bokradio, TJ’s Lekka Braai, Checkers, Bokomo, J&M, Cape Union Mart and Flickaball for their unwavering support.
