Pitchside Practitioners

Pitchside Practitioners CPD sessions

These continuous professional development (CPD) sessions are for Healthcare Professionals, i.e. Physiotherapists, Sports Therapists, Sports Massage Therapists, who are working in a pitchside role with rugby clubs within Northumberland County RFU. They do not replace the need to keep your First Aid or Pre-hospital Immediate Care in Sport qualification up to date. It is your responsibility, along with your club's RugbySafe Officer to ensure that you are qualified appropriately for the level of rugby at which you are working. These sessions are designed to refresh knowledge and skills and give you an opportunity to practise implementing and building on these.


The programme for season 2019-20 is still being finalised at the time update (22.07.19) in the meantime, pitchside practitioners are welcome to join the Northumberland RFU Pitchside Practitioners facebook group (you need to answer security questions to be added by Cathryn Clark).
