about Titans Rugby Development Vision
Titans Rugby as the ultimate choice for rugby development
The newly launched Rural Sports Development Programme, launched by the Department of Sport and Recreation, is expected to develop and provide a platform in rural areas and provide a platform for more talented sportsman and women to showcase their talent. This highlights the need to develop and invest in previously disadvantaged communities, especially in rural communities.
Titans Rugby main initiative is Rugby, which aligns to one of the five identified sports in Minister’s Mbalula’s Programme. Hence Titans Rugby has initiated to support boys from these areas which would otherwise not get the opportunity to play in a team such as this and at tournaments, festivals and participate in clinics such as the ones held by Titans Rugby. Previously, Titans Rugby has done work with the boys from Nooitgedagt Primary and others, and is currently looking for additional schools such as these that would be interested in Rugby initiatives to further develop their players and in return obtain greater exposure for this players through our events. Please contact us if you have such an initiative as Titans Rugby would like to discuss further.
Titans Rugby Development plan is envisioned to be;
1 – The development and representation of a full previously disadvantaged team. With the backing of and sponsors, Titans Rugby would like to field not only a fully fledged team from previously disadvantaged backgrounds, but additionally, for this team to be highly competitive and to do well.
2 – To host NPO Clinic days and to run these clinics with the before mentioned minister’s priorities and initiatives in order to grow the sport of Rugby in rural areas and assist in the identification of the stars of tomorrow.
3 – Most important, Titans Rugby would take pride in the continuation of assisting these boys/ players with higher education at a high school level by ensuring that these boys are put on the correct platforms to be seen by exceptional schools that would offer financial aid to these boys in order to obtain a higher level of education and not be “lost to the system”.
In alignment with this, Titans Rugby would love to hear any ideas or suggestions that you may have. Please feel free to contact us and share with us your ideas.
An important feature of Titans Rugby is that the program is affiliated with multiple bodies and institutes. The core principle being that if good enough, every player should get a chance to show case their talents and receive as much exposure into a high level of the game as possible.
