The aim of this section is to provide information relating to our age grade players (6-18)
Hopefully all will find it fun and easy to use. We want our younger members to check in and contribute frequently to get, and give, information about their club and teams. Coaches and helpers are also urged to provide team reports, photos, articles, results and fixture schedules early and often.
Message from our Child Welfare Officer – Susan Mulcahy
The President and General Committee continues to support our youth and mini sections in many ways, not least of which is ensuring compliance with the protocols of the IRFU Child Welfare Policy – which is available here. All of the coaches, managers and helpers of our youth and minis squads have signed the IRFU Declaration of Intent Form and are required to submit information for the Garda Vetting procedure.
Our Club Constitution embraces the recommendations contained in the “Code of Ethics and Good Practice for Children’s Sport” jointly sponsored by the Irish Sports Council and the Sports Council of Northern Ireland – hhttp://www.irishsportscouncil.ie. We have also established an anti-Bullying Policy which can be viewed from this link – and is also available in hard copy in the Clubhouse foyer (please do not remove). Other protective policies are in place or are in the process of development.
The Club’s “Perfect Pitch” project is now in phase 3, we ask for your continued support. All of our members, players and visiting clubs are benefiting from our upgraded and improved facilities. This is one more facet of our Club’s commitment to providing a safe and healthy environment for all players, members and visitors to enjoy Rugby in our community.
If you do have any concerns it is important to understand that it is not disloyal to the players, coaches or our Club to express those concerns. Your loyalty is to the principles of safety, protection and welfare of all players and members and, in particular, of all our youth and mini players at all times.
I wish all our young members the very best for the coming season and I am sure they will have lots of fun playing and meeting new friends.
Please check out all the links on this page for further details of our activities regarding our Youth and Mini members.
