Player safety and expectations:
Macclesfield rugby Under 8’s request all players must have a responsible adult present for all training and matches.

We are lucky to have such well-behaved children overall. However, we want a fun, competitive and most importantly safe environment and will therefore be strict in our encouragement of players to stop when the whistle blows, to listen/concentrate to coaches and to pay attention. Please reinforce this message on the way to the club on a Sunday morning.

Many thanks,

Under 8’s Coaching Team
