6 steps for community rugby clubs to follow before they resume training

6 steps for community rugby clubs to follow before they resume training

From Monday 29th March 2021 contact training and activity (except scrum and maul) can take place in training and inter-club Tag, Touch and Ready4Rugby fixtures can restart in England.

6 Steps for community rugby clubs in the Return to Rugby roadmap:

  • Step 1: All community rugby clubs should carry out an appropriate risk assessment - to take into account additional considerations that may be required during the Covid-19 pandemic.
  • Step 2: Clubs should ensure they are appropriately setup and prepared for safely welcoming individuals and other clubs to their facilities.
  • Step 3: Plan training sessions accordingly. Focus on building players general fitness levels and rugby skill development along with non-contact game play such as Tag, Touch and Ready4Rugby.
  • Step 4: Audit the rugby kit and equipment that you have already and plan what you need for each stage of the Return to Rugby roadmap.
  • Step 5: Plan and execute accurate and effective communications to all club members of when you plan to being training, how training will be adapted and what you expect from your members.
  • Step 6: Contact training activities should be introduced incrementally, building up to a maximum of 20 minutes duration per session.
