Code of Practice

For Club Officials and Volunteers

The essence of good ethical conduct and practice is summarised below. All volunteers must:

  • Consider the wellbeing and safety of participants before the development of performance.
  • Develop an appropriate working relationship with participants, based on mutual trust and respect.
  • Make sure all activities are appropriate to the age, ability and experience of those taking part.
  • Promote the positive aspects of the sport (e.g. fair play).
  • Display consistently high standards of behaviour and appearance.
  • Follow all guidelines laid down by the national governing body and the club.
  • Hold appropriate valid qualifications and insurance cover.
  • Never exert undue influence over performers to obtain personal benefit or reward.
  • Never condone rule violations, rough play or the use of prohibited substances.
  • Encourage participants to value their performances and not just results.
  • Encourage and guide participants to accept responsibility for their own performance and behaviour.
Tuesday 5 January 2021
Following the government's announcement yesterday that the country and indeed Gloucestershire would move from Tier 4 to Tier 5 with immediate effect, this now means that both adult training/matches and all age-grade rugby training and matches is canceled until further notice.
Our clubhouse remains closed whilst we remain in Tier 5. However, we are accepting bookings for social events in our clubhouse with the caveat that bookings will very much depend on the situation at the time of the event and we reserve the right to cancel.
We recognize that this is hugely disappointing for everyone, but as soon as we are permitted to do so you can be assured that we will open our clubhouse to our members.
