We would like to introduce our OLMJ Parental Attendance Policy. This is based around the England Rugby ‘Parental Attendance at Rugby’ guidance but finalised to take into account the vision of our Mini and Junior’s committee and section; To be the best M&J section in Warwickshire.

It is vital all coaches, AGC’s, parents and volunteers read this policy and fully understand it.

To summarise:
All children from micros-U14’s must have a parent/guardian or responsible adult present at all times when they are participating in rugby activities at our club or at another club (another responsible adult can be nominated by parents if they cannot attend). Parents do not necessarily have to be pitch side at all times if they have siblings on other pitches, but they must be present at the club and immediately contactable.

Players from U15’s upwards can transport themselves to and from home sessions if their parents agree but all parents/guardians must be available on the end of a phone to attend swiftly if they receive a call so all GMS emergency contact information and secondary contact information must be up-to-date and accessible.

Players from U15’s upwards can attend away games/matches/tournaments without parents as long as parents have agreed with another responsible adult that will be present to take full responsibly for them during this period (this may include a coach or other volunteer if they agree to do so).

We hope this guidance is clear and clears up any ambiguity.
