Community Rugby Association

CRA was founded in 2008 to engage with underprivileged children and offer them something positive to focus on. The Association aims to nurture and identify talent at an early age, maintain focus, develop rugby skills and prevent indulgence in drugs. Drug awareness and education is a primary pillar of the CRA and continues to make a positive difference in their lives.

The CRA has been organizing age grade rugby matches and competitions for young children from the urban slums in and around Nairobi. Five teams comprising Runda, Ngong, Bulbul, Matasia and Arise (Dagoretti) fall under the organization of the CRA with a mix of boys and girls teams ranging from 8 to 16 years of age.

Training is run from open fields in the wider Nairobi area and takes place on Saturdays and Sundays. Each team has coordinators and supporting volunteers. Hemingways Collection contributes financially to the Association to support their vision of establishing a national program with adequate remuneration for coaches thereby creating a bridging structure for the children within the age grade structures to be able to progress into the established clubs and thereafter the national teams.
