Parents

This page aims to bring together useful information for parents and guardians of age grade (up to U18) players.

Some of the information will be particularly useful to parents who are new to the game of rugby and the rugby community, while other content will be relevant (and hopefully, useful) for everybody.

Safeguarding (and especially, safeguarding children) is critical and taken extremely seriously by the rugby community.
