The role and responsibilities of the LeagueSafe Trainer during a game are restricted to:

Each junior rugby league teams must have a LeagueSafe Trainer in attendance for games to take place. It is a good idea for teams to have multiple people that are able to perform this role.
Individuals must be 14 years or older to perform the role of LeagueSafe Trainer.
Rugby league player and volunteer registration is now completed online via the NRL’s new MySideline system. Whether you are re-registering from previous seasons, registering for the first time or you want to request a transfer, you will need to use MySideline.
The NRL have put together this quick 'How to Register' video to help guide everyone through registering with a club via the new system.
Before you can perform the role of LeagueSafe Trainer, you must complete the online LeagueSafe course. This course will take you through the roles and responsibilities of being a LeagueSafe Trainer.
Once you complete the training, you will need to present the club with a copy of the certificates and cards you are sent for endorsement and for the club's records. These can be presented at the canteen during training.
The Club can supply you with a voucher code to access the LeagueSafe course for no charge. Email us at email@example.com to obtain a voucher code.
All LeagueSafe trainers must hold a current Working with Children Blue Card issued by the Queensland Government.
If you already have a current Blue Card, simply present this at the canteen on training night and we can link your card to Brothers Juniors Ipswich.

LeagueSafe Trainers are recognisable by their bright yellow shirts they wear.
Once you have completed your accreditation, you can come to the canteen during training to collect your LeagueSafe shirt.
This must be worn during games and must be on the outside of your clothing. If it is cold, we recommend that you wear the LeagueSafe shirt over a jumper.
Remember: The game can be be called off if your team does not have an identifiable LeagueSafe Trainer present.
All appointed LeagueSafe trainers must complete the NRL's Coach, Trainer & Volunteer Registration Form.
This form ensures that you are properly registered with the NRL and approved to LeagueSafe for a junior team. It also provides the NRL with your contact information so that they can send you information and opportunities relevant to your role as a LeagueSafe.
