Sports First Aid

We need you….really!

St Edmunds Rugby maintains a first aid tent, occupied by a qualified first aid person at all home games.

We would like to expand this service by having a trained sports first aid person attached to every team. This will allow our boys to have first hand support both at home and away games.

Consider becoming your son’s (rugby team’s) first aid person! It doesn’t really matter if you can’t make every game, you may be able to share this duty with another interested parent. The first step is to get qualified.

St Edmunds Rugby invites people interested in becoming a sports first aid trainer for St Edmunds Rugby and or expanding their sports first aid knowledge to complete the registration form and upload a copy using our contact form so we can assist in arrangements.

Please refer to the Safer Sports Program calendar for upcoming course dates.
