Your child's welfare is the most important factor for you when planning their extra-curricular activities, and is also the most important factor for Ratoath RFC in the running of our club.
When registering with Ratoath RFC for the first time, all players and parents are required to sign up to the IRFU Code of Conduct.
Once your child joins the club, they will come under the care of club personnel.
Coaches and Volunteers having direct responsibility for your children have received training on Child Welfare, and on Coaching from the Leinster Branch of the IRFU.
They are signed up to the IRFU Code of Conduct for Coaches, and have been subject to a Garda Vetting check.
