Clark Jets Rugby Sports
The Award Winning Clark Jet Rugby Sports Program
Clark Jet Rugby Sports is committed to educate and motivate underprivileged children through the introduction and promotion of rugby in the Philippines.
History of the Clark Jets:
In 2011, Clark Jets started organizing coaching lessons for the former Bahay Bata children who were too old to be under the care of the orphanages. The team put together a comprehensive training program to give these children an opportunity to participate in organized healthy team sports that can cultivate positive character building attributes. We believe that through sports, we can instill and cultivate successful, life changing habits that will help individuals excel in life.
Through professional and well-planned training sessions, with the help of committed volunteers, the participants are taught the positive values of discipline, hard work, and commitment. The passion and commitment to help these children has evolved into the formation of the Clark Jets Rugby Sports – a rugby sports club that believes in harnessing the potentials of each and every one of these disadvantaged children through the education of the sport.
Clark Jets Rugby Sports, with the fervent and committed support of our sponsors and good volunteers supporting the program, have continued with its charitable works of engaging and educating the underserved children of Angeles, Pampanga, and Subic. We also invite children from different social and ethnic backgrounds to provide an all around education through interaction and integration.
Clark Jets believes that the participation and education of sports teams will assist the children in learning and developing a positive mental, physical, and psychological skillset that will augur well for their future. They will learn to set targets and work hard to achieve them through planning and determination. We aim to provide an extended classroom in the outdoor field as an alternative for these children to showcase their talents and learn respect, discipline, teamwork, and all the good virtues that can be harnessed through organized activities aimed at giving them confidence.
We provide a safe setting for these children to try without worrying about failure and to let them experience what a small success can become with the habit of motivation.
There are currently 250 individual boys and girls from this program ages 8 to 18 years old. These underprivileged children are from barangays in Angeles City, street children, abandoned children of parents who discarded them, and children from the orphanages.
Clark Jets believes strongly the benefit of giving these children a well-balanced education to equip them with the necessary skills they need in order to confront challenges that they will face when they grow up.
The goal of the program is to increase the number of beneficiaries from 250 to 500 children by the year 2018 with the support of more sponsors.
The Clark Jets will be looking to defend their title at the Manila 10’s International Rugby competition this March 25th and 26th. Go out and show your support. For more information visit facebook.com/clarkjetsrugbysports, manila10s.com, or prfu.com
