SYDNEY'S STRIKERS TAKE UP THE RREPP ETHICAL SPORTS BALL CHALLENGE

Welcome to our monthly newsletter.

And what a challenging month it has been as covid restrictions and lockdowns continue to test the resolve of so many Nationwide.

An added reason why it is always so motivating and encouraging for a small business like RREPP to hear from our wonderful customers about their own stories, and who even during difficult times, continue to have a focus on social justice, equality, fairness and community. Thanks Dave Mule for the following testimonial. Your support for a socially conscious local business like RREPP is what keeps us encouraged as more schools and sporting clubs Australia wide start to see the amazing benefits of supporting Fairtrade and purchasing with purpose at the grassroots where it counts. You can also read more of our customer testimonials on our website HERE    

"Looking back some thirty five years ago, I can still remember those cold winter nights at training. We would always begin with a warm up, a run around the field and the same routine ball drills. The memory of fifteen young boys sprinting as fast as possible to the big bag of soccer balls is still fresh. All had one mission in mind; to grab the best balls first! It was always a mixed bag filled with only one or two nice, soft, balls. These were followed by the remaining hard, torn, worn and outright atrocious ones. 

Fast forward thirty five years. Having two daughters it is only natural that I’ve become a huge supporter of women’s football. Being asked to coach at the C/C Strikers is a job that I have truely embraced. I’m coaching a great bunch of girls and have tremendous support from parents and extended family. Unfortunately, the training kit I received at the start of the season reminded me of that same kit from thirty five years ago.

However, partnering up with Scott has changed all that! His provision of the RREPP Fairtrade balls has encouraged myself, the team and the parents to not only start thinking ethically but it has also improved our football as a team in a way that has surprised many. This new kit has taken training to a whole new level. Made with high quality materials, the RREPP balls provide a sweet strike and superb foot control making training both enjoyable and rewarding. Having sixteen RREPP balls of the same bright colour and with an alluring design not only gives the players a great sense of professionalism but also an immense sense of pride as a team.

As the coach it’s my job to not only advance the team in football but also encourage equality. I believe that is exactly what the RREPP ball represents. I look forward to partnering with RREPP for many years to come."

David Mule
W14/3 Coach CC/Strikers

So if your School or Sporting Club would like to make the change in 2022, we are starting to take orders in August for all of our Fairtrade certified Sports Balls, with deliveries being made at the beginning of the new year in 2022. Match quality Soccer Balls, Netballs, Rugby Union, Rugby League, Touch Footballs and Futsal balls are RREPP's speciality sporting codes. You can check out our range and ball specs on our website HERE

We look forward to hearing from you, and make sure you ask about our 20% off School and Sporting Club discounts.

Christian Football Victoria Making Their Choice & Raising Their Voice

Welcome again to our newsletter as we continue to shine a light on some of our amazing Corporate clients whose purchasing choices are making a difference in the world. The Victorian Churches Football Association is a not-for-profit, volunteer run organisation that has been running soccer competitions since 1983, and is the Victorian Branch of Christian Football Federation Australia. A wonderful community based organisation who every year creates friendships between players, officials, and supporters through the uniting world game which is soccer.

The VCFA have been using RREPP's ethically made Fairtrade certified Match and International Match Soccer Balls for over 5 years. 200+ teams throughout Victoria every weekend making their Choice their Voice through the ethical purchasing policies of their Association. Below are a couple of testimonials from the VCFA and also their governing National body the CFFA:  

"We chose to use RREPP's Fairtrade match balls because not only are they high-quality, they are also highly empowering. We are well aware that purchasing Fairtrade certified products can assist in reducing poverty, encourage environmentally friendly production methods, and safeguard humane working conditions. All of which are important to us as a Christian Organisation. We are proud to support small businesses like RREPP who are trying to change the world, one soccer ball at a time."

Nicola Westwood - General Manager - Victorian Churches Football Association (VCFA)

"We've discussed with our elite players about their thoughts on RREPP's Phoenix Pro ball, and watched them move it around. Every player that we spoke with said similarly - the ball is outstanding. It holds shape, responds equally well in both hot and cold temperatures and has a controllable flight which eliminates unexpected and unwanted loss of direction often found in other top balls. Players want to feel confident that when they hit the ball correctly it will respond to the touch so that delivery in patterns of play can be precise. Elite players spend hundreds of hours developing technique so that execution is first-rate when it counts. They need the ball they're working with to be at the same standard of excellence, and in the RREPP Phoenix Pro, we are confident we have such a ball."


Matt Jorgensen - National Director of Coaching Christian Football Federation Australia

So thanks again team. Your support and the work you do at a community level from the grass roots up, is truly inspiring. 

And if your School or Sporting Club would like to step away from convention and start backing your Corporate Social Responsibility Statements through your sportsball purchasing, then don't hesistate to make contact with us at [email protected] Throughout August and September is when we will be starting to compile orders for Schools and Clubs for 2022 deliveries. And for larger orders we can professionally print your School, Club or Sponsors logo onto every ball.

South Aussie Soccer Club Breaks Into The Fairtrade Champions League

Welcome to our monthly newsletter update for May 2021.

It's always so inspiring when a new School or Sporting Club reaches out to us and says they want their players playing with ethically made RREPP Fairtrade certified sports balls. Salisbury East Junior Soccer Club in South Australia is the latest addition to our growing family of socially conscious clubs and schools making a difference through their actions rather than their words. Below is from Rachel Griffin, a spokesperson from the Club: 

"The Salisbury East Junior Soccer Club is based in the northern suburbs of Adelaide, South Australia. We are a relatively small club, averaging 7 teams each season, and try to keep registration fees low to enable any child to play. We are part of the Elizabeth and Districts Junior Soccer Association, affiliated to the South Australian Amateur Soccer League Inc. The ages of our players currently range from 5 through to 12, although this varies year to year.

In 2020, despite an interrupted season and a lot of uncertainty, the committee began to discuss the need for equipment for the following year. Part of this was the need for some replacement balls. As someone strongly interested in Fairtrade items and buying ethically where possible, I raised RREPP’s soccer balls as a choice for replacing our tired and worn out ones. We already had our own family RREPP soccer ball (kept on top of the fridge away from our dog when not in use!). So I knew that the quality and most importantly the ethics of the company were excellent. This was met with some resistance due to the higher price compared to our normal choice. However, with some good discussions over a number of months and a successful grant application, the committee voted in favour of buying enough Fairtrade balls to meet the needs of three of our teams. While this is just a start to moving all our balls to Fairtrade, it makes me smile every time we train, knowing that we’ve adjusted our budget to the benefit of others."

So from RREPP to Salisbury East Junior Soccer Club, welcome to the Fairtrade Champions League. It's great to have you on board.

RREPP - Taking It To The Next Level In Football !

Well the next shipment of our ethically produced Fairtrade Certified Sports Balls is presently making its way down the east coast of Australia. In this new post Covid world where freighting by sea rather than air is going to become the norm for RREPP, we will now be organising our future orders around 6 weeks earlier to allow for the extra time frames to ship our products by sea. One of a number of business model adjustments we've made to help take RREPP to the next level over the coming years. And we are determined to do this without raising any of our prices. On the understanding that the last 12 months has been extremely hard on the budgets of so many of the businesses that we are so grateful to have as our clients. 

And speaking of taking it to the next level, on our immediate shipment that will be docking into Sydney mid month, there is a load of our newly developed Hi-Tech multi coloured Hybrid Match Soccer Balls. So with the Soccer season about to start in Australia, and for all the soccer fanatics in your family, why not grab one of these amazing footballs to start off the new season with. In our view, the Best & Fairest Soccer Balls on offer here in Australia. 

Take a look at the Specs of our Size 5 Ball in our online shop HERE . These are next level and will remain part of the RREPP collection for many years to come. Pre Orders taken for this upcoming shipment though have been strong. All Size 4's have already been sold out, yet we still have a small number of Size 5's and Size 3's left that haven't been preordered.

So order now in our online shop HERE . We've also just put in another new order, yet unfortunately they wont be landing on our shores for another 4 months. So grab some from our upcoming shipment arriving in 2 weeks while you can
