Safe Guarding and other Junior policies

HRFC Safe Guarding Contacts

Safe Guarding Officer: Ananda Bodenstein / Lisa Strode


We at Hungerford RFC take the welfare of all our young people as a major priority, and as such we have appointed a Safeguarding Officer and a Child Protection Officer. The mini and youth sections of HRFC hold the RFU Seal of Approval status and as such must conform and operate to a set of standards laid down by the RFU.
All club members and visitors are expected to adhere to the codes of conduct published on this page. These codes of conduct are also displayed on the safeguarding notice board within the clubhouse.

In rugby union, young players are impressionable and their behaviour will often reflect that of the adults around them. Here at Hungerford we always welcome spectators on our touchlines who embrace the ethos of our club and that of the game as one of FUN, ENJOYMENT and SKILLS DEVELOPMENT.
Here at Hungerford RFC the following behaviours are always encouraged:

  • Act as a positive role model to all our young players
  • Be familiar with, and abide by the RFU code of conduct in relation to verbal and emotional abuse.
  • Respect the Rugby Club policy with regard to spectator behaviour.

Finally please, please remember that our young people play for FUN and the love of the game. Let us all encourage them to achieve that by adopting a positive attitude at all times.
