Equipment - Whilst it is not mandatory, we and the SRU consider it essential that players playing
contact rugby (P4-7) have a mouthguard. We have dentist contacts within the Club should you require advice on this.
Mouthguards are also available from supermarkets, sports shops and online and we do hold some spares, available at
minimal cost. On the grounds of safety, we would recommend that P4-7 players without mouthguards do not take part
in contact training and matches, although ultimately, that choice is yours. We also recommend that you consider protective
headgear. Players should adopt a layered approach to clothing (including waterproofs) for training and festivals in all
weather conditions and bring an adequate supply of water.
Parents are encouraged to stay and watch the training sessions. Your son/daughter will
appreciate your interest and will gain a lot from your encouragement. In all cases it is essential that you
have provided the club with appropriate, IMMEDIATE, contact details. It is vital that we are able to contact you
should there be any problem with your child. Mobile phone and landline numbers are a minimum requirement.
Cancellation or amendment of calendar dates - All dates are subject to alteration. These
will be updated in the weekly newsletter, as required. Whenever possible we shall send out an email. Alternatively, if you
are unsure, contact either the coaches or conveners (See details below). Whilst our default setting is to train if at
all possible (we do have poor weather indoor alternative plans if required), sometimes sessions do have to be cancelled
at late notice – please do not leave your child at the Club or any other venue without first checking with one of the
coaches that the session is on.
Festival/Tournament Information – For each tournament in which players participate, and sometimes for
joint training sessions, there is a £3 Match Fee – this goes towards the replenishment of first aid kits and the purchase
of equipment. This will be collected on the day of the event. If a player uses a club shirt at a festival or tournament,
they will NOT be expected to launder the shirt. This will attended to by the club.
