RAP Rule Clarification Rule 7.1 (iii)

In March 2009 a Rules Query regarding treatment of injured players during two minute stoppages was considered by the RAP and a response was circulated to all Members on the 25th March 2009.

Later that year another Member wrote seeking clarification on the RAP response circulated.  RAP responded in June 2009 confirming their earlier advice was correct.

At its recent meeting the IFNA Board considered these responses and agreed that the interpretation circulated in March 2009 was correct and was also in accordance with the International Umpire protocols.

RAP therefore wishes to re-confirm the following clarification:

“Rule 7.1 (iii) The first stoppage for each team in each quarter or half (refer Rule 2.1 and 2.2) shall be up to two (2) minutes from when time is held to decide whether an injured or ill player is fit to continue. The decision shall be left to the Primary care personnel. No other Team Official from the Bench is permitted on Court.”

During this stoppage, other players from either team who are injured or ill may receive treatment from their Primary Care personnel. The length of the stoppage is determined by the treatment required by the player for whom play was stopped.

Either team may make Substitutions or Team Changes.  Refer:  Rule 6.1.1 and 7.1 (v).

                                                      C.R.B Checks

Following the recent announcements in the press we have decided to continue with our present policy until we are advised otherwise

The main message is nothing has changed, checks are not required next month and at present, all our current good practice in terms of safeguarding remains: personal disclosures, references and CRBs where applicable. We  will keep copies off ALL CRB checks if we arrange transport then the driver MUST be CRB checked if parents arrange their own then they don’t have to be we can offer to get them done for parents, see Vanessa.
