Rugby is BACK
Training to commence next Tuesday in groups of ten, Geoff will take one group, Alex will take one and Mat is keen to take a group with possibly Mark, you need to arrive at 7pm on the dot and head out to a trainer, don’t mix with other groups but hopefully this will change in a couple of weeks
If you haven’t let us know your coming then do let us know in case we need to organize an extra trainer
All official details below
PRIOR TO TRAINING
Any person showing signs and symptoms of COVID-19 must not attend training and must seek medical advice. This MUST be communicated forcefully to your players.
Get in, train, get out – Training is not a social occasion
Players must be prepared for training prior to arrival so as to minimize the need to use change rooms, bathrooms
Ideally, changerooms are to stay closed. Players are not to congregate indoors at any time
Players are to bring their own water bottles
Players are to register as normal via the Fusesport Rugby App
Players are to download the COVIDSafe App
Training must be in groups of no more than 10 people, including coaches. Those 10 people must have adequate spacing, maintaining a distance of 1.5m while training where possible.
Training is non-contact – No tackling of players, no rucks, mauls, scrums or lineouts. Accidental contact will inevitably occur but there is to be no deliberate body contact drills
Emphasis to be on fitness and skill drills using a ball, kicking and passing. No touch football or Oztag.
Clubs can have multiple groups of 10 training at once but they must be entirely distinct and separate, properly spaced apart and the groups are not to interact or mingle with each other before, during and after training
Footballs and tackle BAGS (not hit shields) are allowed, but must not be shared between groups. (e.g. do not set up a tackle bag station which each group takes turns at.)
Players to go home ASAP and shower
No socializing or group meals
Clubs to clean equipment
Rugby competition kicks off in July
