Player Welfare Overview
At Yale Rugby, great focus is placed on our players well being at all times. Therefore, we have added great emphasis surrounding key procedures to maximize growth & development in the safest environment possible. Education & understanding relating to nutrition, strength & conditioning and concussion play a major role in adhering to this mindset.
On the field, technical skills are constantly monitored relating to the collision / contact area, to make sure that each individual is performing an effective action in order to reduce injury and stay safe. This is the highest priority point for the coaching staff. New and approved techniques are constantly being implemented as we strive for excellence within our program.
Each player at Yale Rugby completes a pre cognitive and PPE test with our medical staff. This information is essential post injury.
