“At some point we must realize our local players must be put on the radar of international clubs. How else would our plays get the attention of these clubs?” – Peter Philogene, Reduit Football Club Vice President
Jogar Bonito FC particularly was established to introduce a unique approach towards local football. Knitted within the culture of JBFC is a responsibility towards social and youth – in particular – development, through the sport of football. JBFC recognizes the importance of developing the holistic individual.
Becoming a successful athlete is not limited to merely technical and physical capabilities, but a true competitor must also mature mentally.
Respect, discipline, team work, humility, resilience, honesty, trust and camaraderie are just some of the principles polished through football. The social well-being of an individual is equally as important as their technical capacity.
