The executive committee would like to draw your attention to the details of player insurance each season. Clontarf F.C. retains insurance cover for players under the IRFU Player Insurance Scheme.
This scheme covers club players for catastrophic injury only e.g. loss of limb, permanent disablement etc. The policy does not cover loss of earnings, medical expenses, accident and emergency visits or dental repair. It is therefore critical that all players or parents/guardians of players investigate their insurance options. The club recommends that players are covered by medical insurance from a recognised private medical insurer.
Rugby is a collision sport and regrettably injuries can occur. Clontarf F.C. is committed to providing a positive Rugby environment for all its members. This does not extend to financial support for medical bills.
The compulsory IRFU Player Insurance Scheme costs the Club approximately €2,300 per team per annum. That is €115.00 per player p.a. in a match day squad of 20 players. Clontarf F.C.’s current playing subscription for Mini/Youth players is €100 per annum. Unpaid playing subscriptions are not just a meaningless financial shortfall but are a significant annual expense.
Additional Top Up cover is available through the IRFU’s broker
