Kyle's Reach For a Dream Ireland

Kyle's Reach For a Dream Ireland

Personal message

My name is Kyle Saunders.  I am a 22 year sportsman who has been selected to represent South Africa in the TagBoks team tour of Ireland in July 2019 taking part in a 3 test series.  Tag Rugby is a minimal non-contact form of rugby. This sport is not well known to all however it is on an upward curve in the country and the world.  Being from Mitchell's Plain, I would like to inspire hope through my actions of being selected as part of the South African squad.  Many young athletes who faces a sense of hopelessness because of the environment they find themselves in will be able to recognize that with hard work and dedication they too can strive for their dream which ultimately will be a stepping stone to a better future.

I am currently a student teacher Panorama Primary where I am rugby coach for the under nine squad. I graduated from the Stellenbosch Rugby Academy in 2017 with the help of my loving parents. Respect, hard work, commitment and inspiring others is part of my DNA.

In 2018, I was privileged to be selected to play in the Tag World Cup that took place in Coffs Harbour, Australia. We ended up in 10th place but was defeated by Great Britain for the plate final.

Funds raised will go towards the cost of flights, accomodation, transport while there, kits and food. 

It could make me move to the next level of my Rugby career. I have also been asked to the Co-captian for the team. Been approaced by different rugby clubs for 2020.

My name is Kyle Saunders.  I am a 22 year sportsman who has been selected to represent South Africa in the TagBoks team tour of Ireland in July 2019 taking part in a 3 test series.  This is a great opportunity for me, but unfortunately the trip is self-funded and a teacher's salary doesn't go far.
