GET RUGBY READY
Physical preparation is an essential component of sports performance at every level. The fitter you are the better you will train and play, and you will also reduce your risk of injury.
Reduce your chance of injury with correct technique. Remember, practice makes perfect, so talk to your coaches and remember your mouthguard!
WARM UP & COOL DOWN
You can reduce your chance of injury by 30-50 percent by following RugbySmart’s warm up programme. Preparation counts.
It’s important that everyone in rugby knows the signs and symptoms of concussion and rugby’s Graduated Return to Play protocols. Make sure you have the knowledge to recognise, remove and refer.
NUTRITION & HYDRATION
What you eat and drink affects how you play and train. Carbohydrates, protein and plenty of water are key.
RESPECT & RESPONSIBILITY
Being a good member of the rugby community is more than just playing well. Head to RugbySmart to learn about developing healthy relationships on and off the field.
