We welcome players, carers and volunteers of any and all backgrounds; asking only that they treat each other, and visiting teams and officials, with courtesy and respect.

MPU

Our volunteers working with children hold current DBS checks in line with RFU policy.

Our volunteer youth and mini coaches are encouraged to take RFU training courses (coaching, refereeing, safeguarding, first aid) at an appropriate level, and are supported by the London Scottish professional coaching staff in their coaching development.

Equality and Welfare

We welcome players, carers and volunteers regardless of gender, ethnicity, religion, family background, sexual orientation or socio-economic background.

We will not tolerate bullying of any sort.

We recognise that in a contact sport accidents do occasionally happen.  We have RFU first-aid trained volunteers, and there is a duty physio at the RAA when we play at home.   We encourage all players and carers to complete the appropriate RFU online concussion education course.
