FIRST AID and TEAM ASSISTANCE

Each team management may ask members to assist with game day duties. Teams will be required to supply a manager and assistant ref for every home & away game. At home games teams will need to supply a field marshal and the junior club may request a first aid person that holds the minimum of Apply First Aid. The committee also ask members if they can help in the canteen at our own home games. If offering to help email clubrooms@rrufc.com.au and we will guide you through the process.

Please note some roles such as manager, field marshal and assistance refs require an ONLINE accrediation process that must be carried out before games start. Coaches will decide what number of trainers may be required. If interested in helping your own team discuss with your coach.

CLUBROOM ASSISTANCE

As many would have seen we open the clubroom at Friday junior training and we will also open on game days. When we have junior home games, teams will play Saturday & Sunday from 8:30am and depending on the number of games to be played as to game times and how long we stay open. We kindly request assistance from anyone that would like to help. Don't feel shy. On game day we encourage assistance before your game. Come into the canteen the game before your game. IE. If your game is 9:20am, come in to help from about 8:30am, than when your game starts, leave to watch. We request adults only wearing enclosed shoes.

CLUB HANDBOOKS (CLUB RULES)
The senior and junior club rules / handbooks are available on the INFO page of the website. These are updated as required and always useful to find relevant information.

WET WEATHER

The number one confusing thing to most people is what happens at rugby when wet weather.

We have a simple process. The club has a wet weather training policy and game day policy. Available in the Club Handbook (Club Rules) on the INFO page of the web site.

Summary as follows.

Training:-

Don't assume just because it is raining that training will be cancelled. That may not be the case.

Once we have all member contact details we relay this to team management. It is then up to each team management to decide what happens with TRAINING if wet weather. (Unless a total field closure.)

The club management will decide in certain circumstances such as massive rain events or a total field closures but on the whole the teams will decide what they do with training. Remember just because the rugby fields may be closed, team may still choose to do off field training. We also have several fields available to us so two may be closed but two may be open.

A few rules of thumb to follow.

-Look on club FB or the web site as we will try to post as much info as we can.

-Teams may use a team FB or mobile phone app so follow your own team instructions as they may vary on what they may decide.

-Dont assume and if you have doubt contact your own team management.

Game day:-

The club decides what happens on game day, not the teams.

We rarely stop playing just because of rain. Players love rain. If raining, still expect games to be on somewhere.

The governing body (BJRU & QSRU) can make competition decisions that override clubs desires but normally only in the event of major rain.

Just because raining in Redcliffe doesn't mean it is raining at your away game location.

Assume games are on until known otherwise, look on the club FB and web site for any postings. Team management will be kept informed on club and governing body decisions as they may arise on game day so communicate with your own team management on the game day procedures and importantly be appreciative some decisions can be made late simply due to "waiting to see what may happen".

It is worth noting in the early part of the year some contact details may not be relayed yet so we apologise if there may be some communication issues but over time all parties will be on the same page.
