ONGOING TRAINING AND CERTIFICATION

CONCUSSION MANAGMENT

All Sask Rugby staff, coaches, managers and therapists participate in mandatory Concussion Management training. Parents, players and anyone else involved in the sport is highly encouraged to take the Free Online Module from World Rugby so that we can keep our sport safe.

The message is simple: RECOGNISE and REMOVE. Recognise the symptoms of concussion and permanently remove a player displaying any of those symptoms. If in doubt, take them out. 

PLAY SMART

Rugby Canada PlaySmart is a Player Welfare program that aims to educate players, parents, coaches, match officials and administrators on the safety of Rugby across Canada.

The health and safety of every player across the country is of paramount importance and Rugby Canada strives to ensure a safe playing environment at all levels. It is everyone’s responsibility to ensure that all players are protected and ensure that the game is played safely. 

KEEPING CERTIFIED

Keep up to date with all your Coaching administration:

Coaches must be registered and insured to protect themselves and the athletes they work with.

Coaches not already enrolled as Players or Referees can register with their Club (or as non-club affiliated coaches) HERE.

Coaches wanting to add ‘Coach’ to their existing Player or Referee membership can do so by contacting Member Services

Every year, coaches need to ensure they complete certain courses to stay registered. These are:
