The club encourage our coaches to take as many courses as possible. You can get your course fees refunded by contacting treasurer@wmrfc.co.uk. Please get pre-clearance from your age group head coach/chair of youth and let the treasurer know you are doing it. This way Nick, the treasurer, knows that your course is supported by the club and he can track courses and also know that a bill will be coming.

The Wimbledon RFC Disciplinary Policy is to be found on this page. It caters for all age groups (adult to minis) and covers players, parents, coaches and visitors. This pdf is the policy in full . Any questions to Meg Gardiner, Wimbledon RFC Hon. Secretary meg.gardiner@cantab.net

As part of the RFUs plans for improving player and spectator behaviour it has put together a document (see attached below) - This is Rugby . It simply states what rugby is, and most importantly, what it isn't. Please take a moment to study it, especially in light of the renewed focus on discipline this season - http://wmrfc.co.uk/rfucorevalues. Let's help everyone enjoy our sport to the full.
