Welfare and Safeguarding
Your child’s welfare, and safeguarding are at the forefront of the camps delivery. You can be assured your child is in capable hands, all of our coaches are DBS cleared. We also have a dedicated welfare officer at each camp to ensure the quality of our Tigers Rugby Camps and childcare is maintained at the highest level. There is a sign in and sign out system, no child can leave the camp without being signed out by a parent or previously agreed adult.
Safety is our top priority and all of our camps have designated first aiders who are present throughout the day. Parents are requested to provide relevant medical history or details regarding any previous injuries upon booking to ensure our first aiders are as best informed as possible. We work hard to ensure that everyone has a fun-filled, week complete with challenges suited to their age and ability. On site we have trained first aiders that are highly experienced in sports injuries, so in the unlikely event of injury you know your child will be well taken care of.
What about contact?
From U9’s and above, we begin to introduce young players to the contact-based games and technical skill breakdowns within managed sessions, that we believe are important for each player to develop their own awareness, understanding and decision making abilities. Exercises such as tackle techniques, wrestling techniques and a player’s bodyshape at the breakdown are important skills that introduce and prepare young players for contact, before implementing in game-based scenarios.
