It is expected that all coaches have relevant RFU coaching qualifications and have been DBS checked. The club is a volunteer club. All the officers, coaches, administrators and parents who help out every Sunday do so on a completely voluntarily basis – without them there would be no club. We are NOT a creche. We like parents/guardians/accompanying adult to stay, watch and encourage the children during the sessions. If unable you must leave a contact number. It is absolutely essential that at the end of the session someone is there to collect the children on time.
The season runs from the first Sunday in September to the last Sunday in April at Dorking RFC. Fixtures, League & Friendly, are played throughout the season against other clubs on a home and away basis. There are no coaching sessions on Easter Sunday or on Sundays around Christmas/New Year depending on age-group preference.
Coaching may also be cancelled if pitches are frozen solid/waterlogged or in other extreme weather conditions. To save a wasted trip please check the website.
Coaching will not be cancelled if it is merely cold, wet and miserable, but if it is truly horrible we will limit the session length accordingly. However, truly horrible days are surprisingly rare.
Insurance for players is provided by the club through RFU. It is advisable to check your own insurance for additional cover.
Give your child time to decide whether he/she likes mini-rugby and wants to continue before paying the subs or buying any kit. A FULLwater bottle is essential in all weather to prevent de-hydration. Please make sure your child is adequately protected from the cold.
Tetanus – All players and coaches should have current tetanus cover – this is not usually a problem with school age children but if you are in any doubt please check with your GP.
Mouthguards/Gumshields – protect teeth, jaw and lips and also reduce the risk of concussion. It is advisable that all players have mouth guards that fit well. We insist on it for under-9s + above.
Boots – Boots should fit well and be in reasonable condition. Studs must be safe. The modern ‘blade’ type football boots are not illegal as long as they are rubber-moulded and not sharp.
Shin-guards – Shin-guards can be worn, and are especially advisable for the front rows of the contested scrums (under-10 and above).
