PLAYER WELFARE

Rugby Ontario is committed to providing all participants with a safe and welcoming environment in which to participate in the sport of rugby. Rugby Ontario has developed the Guide to Protecting Children Playing Rugby in Ontario. This document complements Rugby Ontario’s current policies and procedures, the Ontario Provincial Government under the Child and Family Services Act.

In response to the above provincial and union policies, the Caledon Cavaliers RFC has appointed Iain McRuvie as our Child Protection Officers (CPO), to ensure compliance and safety for all our members. Iain will be actively working with each program as well as monitoring our club compliance throughout the rugby season. Should you have any questions or concerns for Iain, he can be reached at info@caledoncavaliersrugby.ca.

It is everyone’s responsibility to ensure that all players are protected and ensure the game is played safely.

As of February 1, 2016, Rugby Canada implemented the PlaySmart Program, which recommends that everyone involved at all levels of the game complete the following:
