As we all stare down the barrel of a huge delay in a return to any form of normality it’s important to understand and support those among us who may be struggling or need help. Everybody will react differently to the current global situation and local restrictions. We at Norfolk RFU want to help our community in these times, so Norfolk RFU have teamed up with MIND and UK Coaching to provide a Mental Health awareness for sport and physical activity CPD course.
In a sport often thought to be built on bravado and physical strength, the core values and real strength of our sport is often overlooked. Teamwork, Respect, Enjoyment, Discipline and Sportsmanship. Together we will play Rugby again but, in the meantime, hopefully this training will help us look after each other in a way that has never been more important.
“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.”
― Leo F. Buscaglia
