The year 2020 was an absolute disaster not only for school rugby but all youth rugby, with players not being able to participate in hardly any matches and/or the different yearly tours due to the COVID pandemic. Even now the possibility of rugby tours during the April 2021 holidays seems as if they are not going to be permissible.
Therefore RK Rugby SA in conjunction with Universal Travellers is offering a once in a lifetime opportunity with an exciting International Rugby Tour to Namibia.
We will be taking 5 squads of 20 player’s each in 5 different age categories:
– U/13 players born in 2008 and 2009
– U/14 players born in 2007
– U/15 players born in 2006
– U/16 players born in 2005
– U/18 players born in 2004 and 2003
Some of the things they will experience:
– Four competitive rugby matches against the some of the Top School Teams in Namibia
– Dolphin & Seal Catamaran Cruise for a marine educational sightseeing tour in the bay area in search of the marine Big 5.
– Dune Sandboarding & Quad Bike Drives – just outside of Swakopmund on a perfect star dune towering 100m.
– Enjoy an Awards Evening at the famous Joe’s Beerhouse in Windhoek.
As part of our package we have available as an optional extra, Premium Travel Insurance cover as well as “Any reason cancellation” cover.
At RK Rugby SA and Universal Travellers the safety and well-being of the players are of the utmost importance, therefore we have hand selected the coaches that will accompany the players, whom we have known for a number of years and that we know will look well after the players. An international representative from Universal Travellers will also accompany the group to ensure the smooth running of the daily operations.
This invitational tour gives players from different schools and areas the opportunity to be part of this amazing experience. The reason for this is that it lessens the burden on a specific school to get enough players and by offering it to players from more than one school will make the tour a sustainable venture as well it creates bonds and friendships between players that would’ve never otherwise had the opportunity to meet each other or play together. It furthers the goal of solidarity in the game as well as the principals and values of the game of rugby.
Usually these kind of tours are only available to U/19 players, but we felt that we had to do more and make up for the lost time and opportunities players may have missed out in 2020. We have therefore put a package together whereas we want to provide this opportunity to more players and age groups in order to maximize their exposure and provide more playing opportunities.
This tour is scheduled for 01 – 08 October 2021. We have structured a payment plan which makes this opportunity very cost effective and affordable.
Hereunder you will find the TOUR BROCHURE, the TOUR INFORMATION as well as a TOUR INTEREST FORM.
Each player will receive a Match Kit with the following:
– Match Jersey
– Match Socks
– Warm Up Shirt
– Travel Bag
As well as a Universal Travellers Backpack and Travel wallet.
Although rugby is the main purpose of this tour we strongly believe that the players should experience true Namibian hospitality and a little bit of the historic sites of this beautiful country.
