    PLAYER REGISTRATION GUIDELINES

    Dual registration is a competition rule that does not apply to youth and schools rugby but we understand that being registered to more than one club may be appropriate in some circumstances. As such the SRU have drafted some simple guidelines to provide clarity around player registration for youth players.

    • Players under the age of 18 can be registered to up to 3 organisations in SCRUMS with the following restrictions;
    • A player cannot be registered to more than one club that participates in the national competitions that are managed by the Schools & Youth Competitions Committee (Tier 1-3 Conferences and National Cups)
    • A player cannot be registered to more than one that participates in regional/local competitions or friendly fixtures (Tier 4)
    • A player can also be registered to one school

    SCHOOLS AND YOUTH RUGBY - MANAGING MISMATCHES

    Rugby is a game for everyone; all ages, levels of experience and body types. Children can prosper through rugby in an environment where having fun, learning and building confidence are prioritised.

    It is the responsibility of all adults in the game to create an environment that is player-centred, development-driven and competition-supported. This applies to coaches, parents, teachers, volunteers and supporters.

    Please see the Managing Mismatches Information leaflet for all the details


    CONCUSSION GUIDANCE

    Updated guidance on concussion management for sports.

    https://sportscotland.org.uk/clubs/scottish-sports-concussion-guidance/

    The graduated return to play process should start after 7 days for an adult and 14 days for someone under 19.
