Project Raithby

Project Raithby

Raithby is a small farming community, situated between the towns of Somerset West and Stellenbosch, just off the R44. Sport, and particularly Rugby is a very important component in the history of this quaint enclave. The Forward Foundation, together with the Raithby Primary School, Church and Sports Council, aim to develop an integrated residential sports development academy for children.

The academy will invite children from the region with particular talent in sport, that cannot be supported by their parents and school. These children will receive specialised sports development support, academic schooling, accommodation and community inclusion.

The sports development vision for Raithby is a life-long dream for Forward Foundation founder Le Roux Conradie, who permanently lives in the village. His career in sports management and his diverse network of sporting coaches, officials, professional players and support organisations make him an ideal person to lead this vision.

Project Raithby will offer a number of sports development services and facilities to also include daily coaching, school sport clinics, camps and tournaments. Our plan is to create a sporting hub in Raithby, where the South African sports champions of the future can start preparing.

We are currently raising funds for the land and infrastructure development, which we hope to complete in 2023.
