3. First Aid Cover

We strive to have first aid support in attendance at our training sessions and home matches, but this is not always possible.

4. Insurance

All mini and youths players that are registered with the club and have their yearly subscriptions paid are covered by the IRFU Group Scheme for Clubs. This insurance policy covers major incidents and is limited in its cover. It is recommended that parents have additional private health insurance in place to cover their children.

5. Vetting for Coaches

All coaches are required by law to complete Garda Vetting. This process has to be completed every three years. As part of the process for the current season, all coaches that have not previously completed the vetting process must provide copies of identification with their vetting application forms. The most up-to-date vetting forms are available on the IRFU Safeguarding page (link below). For those new to coaching for the current season, please download and have these forms completed in advance of the 1st training session. These must be checked and signed by the CWO.
