Born and raised in Cape Town, Jordan Chait attended one of South Africa’s oldest rugby-playing institutions, South African College High School (SACS). An accomplished water polo player, he first grabbed the attention of rugby scouts by leading SACS to a shock victory over powerhouse Pretoria school, Affies. Following in the footsteps of his father Anton, who played flyhalf for Western Province in the 1990s, Jordan was one of the standout recruits at the U18 Academy Week of 2015, earning a junior provincial contract with Western Province in the process.
He enrolled at Stellenbosch University and quickly became a team leader winning 2019 Varsity Cup Title. Most recently Chait played for the Tel Aviv Heat in the Rugby Europe Super Cup. Chait was named in the Sharks side for the 2022 Currie Cup Premier Division.
