The RFU issued further guidance on the 2nd June regarding a phased return to sport and recreation following updated advice from the Government on Sunday 31st May.   The RFU have issued their “Return to Rugby Roadmap” for Community Rugby which sets out a step by step approach to a phased re-opening for community-based clubs.

This, of course, is welcome news to us all, we know that everyone is keen to resume as soon as possible, given the abrupt end to our 2019/2020 season!  However, we must all still be mindful that we can only take these steps when we, as a Club, are confident that it is safe to do so.

From mid-June, we will be offering our out of season Return to Rugby Fitness Training to some teams.  Each coach will assess the process to ensure that their team can operate safely, but we have to be mindful of how many teams we can accommodate given the restriction of space available and ensure that the senior teams can also take part.  We know everyone is keen to return to rugby as soon as possible, but we would ask everyone for their patience, you can be assured that we will do everything we can, whilst maintaining the highest safety levels.

Players will be allocated to a coaching group prior to training and a pitch allocation within the Club grounds for that training session and players are reminded not to move between groups during training.
 
Groups will be given staggered times by coaches for arrival and when leaving so as to reduce risk of social distancing issues.   To take part in these sessions parents/guardians must complete a booking/consent form*.  Please ensure that you have also read our Return to Rugby Policy.
 
*Note parents/guardians only need to complete a booking/consent form once to take part in  Return to Rugby Fitness training.
