Great initiative from our member, Playr-Fit who have announced Lewis Bellew and Siofra McCreesh from St. Joseph’s HS, Crossmaglen as the first Playr-fit Elite Athlete Scholarship recipients of the new year.
The main sport for Lewis is Gaelic Football and Siofra is a dual athlete taking part in Ladies Gaelic Football and Camogie. Both athletes also participate in cross country running and other sports. Being involved in a range of sports gives these athletes many transferable skills in sport and life.
Playr-Fit based in Newry are happy to support these athletes, helping them perform at the highest level in their range of sports and there is no doubt that you will be hearing their names a lot more in the years to come.
The Playr-Fit Elite Athlete Scholarship was introduced to financially help students with their extra training expenses and allows them to focus on their sport and studies.
In the current cost of living crisis, Playr-Fit are making school PE uniforms more affordable for parents. Offering 5 items, a full tracksuit and a full playing kit from just £55.00 or €65.00. More than 50% cheaper than other suppliers.
If your school is interested in getting involved in this scholarship programme you can inquire with your rep or email email@example.com.
