All coaches of minis and youths and anyone working with children in our club must apply for vetting through Rugby Connect. The Directors of Mini (Shane Keown) and Youth Rugby (Robbie O’Neill) and our Club Welfare Officer (Pearl Healy), can help with any questions.
Please note there are two options, please ensure you select the correct option:
- For occasional work with children (this does not include coaching underage teams)
- For regular work with children. This would include all minis and youths coaches.
Any coach of underage teams who has not completed the vetting process will not be allowed to work with children in our club.
Only members of St Mary’s College RFC can apply for vetting, through Rugby Connect, as members of the club.
