Lean On Me – Vikings Rugby’s Well-being & Performance Program


In 2021, Vikings Rugby are proud to launch our ‘Lean On Me’ program, a holistic initiative that will benefit all members of our Club and extended Vikings family.


Our Lean On Me program provides access to valuable resources on mental health, nutrition, strength & conditioning, rehabilitation & recovery and cultural recognition & mentorship to Vikings Rugby players, support staff, volunteers and our extended network. The program will encapsulate all of the elements listed above, with an aim to expand our Rugby Club’s service offering to current and potential members. The program’s aim is to improve the well-being of our club members, while also enhancing their ability to perform on the Rugby pitch.


We believe that better people make better Rugby players. We have launched Lean On Me to make our people better off the pitch, so that they can perform to their best of their ability while on it. We also understand that Rugby is only one key element in our members lives. Lean On Me provides our Vikings family with essential tools to succeed in all facets of life, so that they can look after themselves, their family, their friends, and improve their overall quality of life.


The following core components will form the basis of Lean On Me. We will have more information on each component shortly.
