Corporate Games South Africa has been involved in this unique programme and adopted Siyabulela Primary School, based in Langa township outside Cape Town for the past two years. As sponsors and supporters of Corporate Games you have an opportunity to Adopt your own School and become personally involved in this successful CSI programme.
Siyabulela is now a part of the national SARU Grassroots Development programme that will give the school the opportunity to play in leagues and to enter Tournaments run by the Tag Rugby® Association.
With the Tag Rugby® Adopt a School Programme, we are attempting to get children off the streets and away from the ills they are confronted with on a daily basis to enjoy sport with other children.
Muhammed Ali said “Champions aren’t made in gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside of them – a desire, a dream, a vision…. they have to have the skill and the will. But the will must be stronger than the skill.”
By using Tag Rugby® (which requires no infrastructure and rugby experience) the learners in under-privileged areas with no facilities enjoy the feeling of running with a ball in their hands and having fun with their peers. Tag Rugby® can be played by boys and girls and there is no contact in Tag Rugby® so the fear of injury is removed from the game.
Your company can adopt a school it’s immediate area or can select a specific school. In many instances, especially regarding sport, the donated resources are often stolen, lost or put into a cupboard and forgotten about.
With the Adopt a School Tag Rugby® Programme, your company will have someone accountable for the donation and the learners at the schools will benefit by virtue of the fact that they are getting exercise whilst having fun. We have found that Tag Rugby® due to the very nature of the game improves learners’ eye-hand co-ordination and concentration levels in the school environment.
The programme qualifies for 100% tax relief in terms of a donation and all relevant documentation will be provided.
