Rugby Aware Evening

By Sarah Kearney

This Tuesday 1st November England Rugby will be hosting a ‘Rugby Aware’ evening

This Tuesday 1st November England Rugby will be hosting a ‘Rugby Aware’ evening at Sandown and Shanklin Rugby Club between 19:00 and 20:30 latest. I understand it is short notice but it would be great to see you there.

I invite you to join us for an informal evening to discuss what is being done in our game to make the game safer. The purpose of rugby aware is to open a forum with a cross section of the island rugby family specifically regarding the RFU’s commitment to player welfare and the role of professional staff, clubs and schools in ensuring player safety.

With the rise of media attention to issues surrounding player welfare it is important to share key updates with the game about how we are making our game safer, more accessible and how we can all work together to ensure our players stay involved in the game for longer.

The session will also provide an update on the work being done on the Isle of Wight across schools, colleges and clubs to support the game in addition to opportunities for questions on any of those topics. Please encourage your fellow coaches, referees, managers, parents, players and teachers to attend.

The short session will cover several key themes:
• The Why - Putting player welfare at the heart of the game, More players rugby played more often by more people.
• The Tackle - Safe and effective technique
• Law Changes – Update for 16-17 season
• RugbySafe – Increasing Awareness
