We also have a well stocked first aid kit and ice pitch side for minor injuries, bruises etc. We also have a documented accident procedure and form in place.

Can I watch the camp?

We advise that for children to settle into the camp and so they are not too distracted, it is better if their parents want to watch that they come along to the last hour for match play. We also request that parents watch from outside the fence for safety reasons.
