Welcome to Rush Athletic Football Club

REGARDING THE FIXTURES, please check club facebook page. By and large, the Herald on Monday and the Daily Star on Tuesday are the bibles in terms of your teams fixture, we copy into the website from the newspapers, so typos can always creep in.




 

Parents, please read the Club Players Insurance summary below.

This is the best policy currently available to soccer clubs. Please note the low amount available for Dental and Physiotherapy, also note the excess.

Essentially what this means is that Dental is covered only to 350 because of the 150 excess, and the cover is for emegency dental only, so basically any costs incurred on the day of the injury.

We have checked with the insurers to see if there was an option for parents to pay a higher individual premium if they wanted to fully insure their children in the case of a serious dental issue. The answer was 'No', they would have to take out Private Health Insurance for this.

We mentioned to the insurer that the GAA have made this option available to parents, the answer was that because of the risks involved with hurling, the GAA have negotiated this deal for their sport, but it is definitely not available to soccer clubs.

This is not an ideal scenario, but we feel it is our duty to point this out, so that parents are aware that the decision is completely for themselves to make regarding their child's participation in soccer. If they feel that the risk is too high, then the only two options seem to be, pay for private health insurance, or tell the child that they can't play soccer as the risk is too great.

If we find an insurance offering for soccer clubs that gives us better cover, we will look again at this, but there are currently only two insurers for clubs, and they have very similar policy offerings.

Team Managers:

Please refrain from letting teams do sprints etc on pitches, it cuts the playing surface unnecessarily.

Also, if you have training equipment like poles etc, leave them in the clubhouse.

Do not use the Training Area or pitches for doing dynamic warm ups, it's damaging the pitches, please use the sides.

 

Recommendations when using the Clubhouse Hall

Bring runners to change into in the clubhouse to keep them dry.

The first team up training should open doors and windows to air the room. If surface is too slippy, don't train on it.
