The purpose of a player profile is to help coaches and trainers make sure that players are ready to perform, so they get the most of the game.
It helps coaches to determine players’ fitness, establish a baseline and identify any risks of specific issues. It also allows coaches to tailor training to the needs of players.
At a minimum, the screening should cover:
- Emergency contact information
- General health and wellbeing
- Physical health
- Rugby- specific skills and knowledge.
