Player Welfare Roadshows (2017/18 Season)

Improving the standards of player welfare within clubs and schools is one of Scottish Rugby's primary objectives. In order to communicate key player welfare messages, including concussion management, child protection and anti doping, a series of Player Welfare Roadshows are being delivered throughout August.

These roadshows are aimed at club and school representatives with responsibilities for player welfare, which could include Directors of Rugby, Head Coaches, Phyios, Child Protection Officers, and Youth Convenors. Up to 3 representatives from each club / school can register using the links below.

The roadshows are free of charge to attend.
