The Government announcement on Mon 25th May allowed community sport to resume with groups of 10 or less. From Fri 28th May at 12.00 noon that increases to groups of up to 100 people. This means clubs can resume full training’s but with guidelines and protocols that clubs must adhere to. This puts us in the “prepare to play phase” until Fri 19th June. While still in the prepare to play phase, clubs can start pre-season games from Sat 13th June. Stage 3 or the “play phase” commences on Sat 20th June.
The WCJRB is yet to decide as a board when our Junior rugby will officially start. Before anyone can train or play, all clubs must have a health and safety plan approved by the WRU. In most cases this will have been done by the senior committee of your club. One club, one plan. Please check if you are not sure. The responsibility lies with us as junior administrators to ensure guidelines and protocols are followed by our junior members.
Below are the documents that the senior clubs received. If you haven’t already seen them, please read and understand your responsibilities. You do not need to sign and return. We all need to fully understand what is required to return to play safely.
The board will meet Sun 7th June to determine dates. The WCJRB will expect to have confirmation soon around how and when Small Blacks will be done. It is still a requiremnt for all coaches and managers to be compliant for 2020.
