Finally, Ratoath RFC also recommends that school-going players take the option of joining a Schools personal accident scheme, where available, that covers the player out of school hours and outside school activities. The cost of these schemes is usually very reasonable, and they usually cover a wide range of injuries. In some schools these schemes are compulsory. Players or their parents should check what their school's scheme covers and whether they are members of it.
