Suttonians along with the IRFU seek to promote the welfare of all Age Grade Players, so that they develop to the best of their ability in a safe and fun environment.

We want to welcome young people to Suttonians and to the game of rugby, so that they thrive in our care. Young people are the lifeblood of our game and their welfare and protection is the primary concern for all adults involved in Suttonians and the IRFU.

Anti-Bullying Statement:

Suttonians and the IRFU values of all its members, especially Age-Grade Players and will not tolerate repeated, aggressive behaviour (verbal or physical) by an individual or group against others. Respect is one of our core values!

Suttonians alongside the IRFU is committed to tackling bullying so that Age-Grade Players can feel safe within their rugby club and among team players. Incidents of bullying are breaches of the IRFU Codes of Conduct.
