Safe Rugby:

We strongly encourage all coaches, players and parents to have a better understanding of concussion.  Concussion can pose a significant risk to the well being of players if not managed effectively.  Please use the following link  to the IRFU website  www.irishrugby.ie/concussion and fimilarise yourself with the signs, symptoms and management of concussion.  I would ask that you share Junior Player video with your child to ensure that they too understand concussion.

 Code of Ethics: 
Parents please read, discuss with your child & abide by the clubs code of ethics – See this link http://www.clontarfrugby.com/youth-mini-rugby/code-of-ethics/

Please get involved. Positive encouragement for all the children is vital, most players want to impress their parents, so please try to impress the children. Never be negative.

NOTE: If any parent/guardian has an issue or observation regarding their child please bring notice immediately to a coach.
