Welcome to The Cambodian Federation of Rugby

Since its creation in 2001, Cambodia Rugby is a French registered non-profit organization that works in Cambodia assisting disadvantaged and disabled children to develop and build themselves through sports. Non-political, non-religious and non-profit, Cambodia Rugby is registered as an association in France and is currently in the process of registering in the Kingdom of Cambodia. Our objective is to use sport as a tool of social inclusion and education for children. Through sports and Rugby in particular, children are able to develop essential human qualities like sharing, mutual respect, tolerance, team spirit and team work, as well as other social skills.

Making children smile with sports

Although Cambodia is a fast growing country, public schools and non-governmental organizations are unable to provide sufficient access to physical education. A broad lack of resources such as funding, facilities, public transportation, manpower, Will are recurrent, and deprive children from basic sports activities. Thirty-one percent of the population in 2011 is between 0-35 years old (World Bank Data).

 

Why Rugby

 

Rugby is like no other sport. It is not great, it is not a past-time, it is a brief, awe-inspiring conflagration where no one man is a hero. The essence of rugby is the team. The honor and skills inherent in working as a team are some of the best that can be taught to children.

Given that sports are used around the world for education, socializing and peace building, Cambodia Rugby sought to use those established methodologies with rugby as the tool. Our team has years of experience playing and coaching rugby and Cambodia has been a part of the International Rugby Board (IRB) since 2006 as an Associate Member. Together, with Cambodia need for the development of future rugby players, makes Cambodia Rugby's mission two fold.

Where other sports highlight the individual, rugby is about the team. For without teammates a player has no chance of scoring a try. Without teammates a player has no one to pass the ball to, no one to enter a scrum with, no one to lift him or her up. Hooliganism and nonsense are not part of the game nor the culture of the sport, but of course a good sense of humor is always encouraged, instead an honorable and responsible attitude is promoted.

In our country, true teams rarely exist social barriers and personal ambitions have reduced athletes to dissolute cliques or individuals thrown together for mutual profit Yet these rugby players. with their muddied, cracked bodies, are struggling to hold onto a sense of humanity that we in America have lost and are unlikely to regain. The game may only be to move a ball forward on a dirt field, but the task can be accomplished with an unshackled joy and its memories will be a permanent delight. The women and men who play on that rugby field are more alive than too many of us will ever be. The foolish emptiness we think we perceive in their existence is only own.
