Dear Members and Budding Waratahs,
I hope that this finds you all safe and well, social distancing, and adjusting to our new “normal” world.
On the good news front, the SJRU is aiming for a July 26th start date for the recommencement of rugby at both Shute Shield and Junior level (as long as government restrictions allow).
They are anticipating that training will be able to commence from the end of June. Again, this is what we are hoping and planning for but it is obviously dependent on medical guidelines going forward.
I hope that everyone is able to get out and pass a ball with your child. For those wanting to do a little more then the NSW Rugby website has masterclass’ online.
Please all stay safe and as more and more details are released we will let you know.
Update 29th May:
Another week and another COVID update! Nothing new in terms of changes to Community Sport, so we continue in the initial stages of training and await further confirmation of when we can go to the next stage.
Many clubs have been formulating their plans to get back into training and in doing so comply with the NSW Health orders and follow the checklists we have provided. Some have already made it back onto the training field – so well done to all. Perhaps as expected, given we do not yet have a set of State Government endorsed guidelines or framework for the return of Community Sport, there is some variation between the requirements and conditions of different councils. I understand there is Club frustration, but I commend the hard work many of you are doing to put together robust and effective plans to get your players back into training in these groups of 10 or less, the non-contact phase we are in.
HAS THIS WEEK CHANGED THE COURSE OF THE SJRU PLAN?
In short no.
Our plan is still to be confirmed but includes a 9-10 week home and away season of XV’s Junior Rugby. Our intended start date remains the weekend of 24-26 July, but we are looking at the potential to commence a week earlier, which would give us a 10 week XV’s comp. Frosty’s (subject to canvassing Clubs) will have an 8-week comp starting on 25 July. We also plan to run our Springs 7’s competition for 8 weeks from the weekend of 17/18th October, and in Season 2020 this will offer a Girls Wave of Spring 7’s, as well as Boys.
We will present more detail on this to Clubs/Districts in webinars which are planned for the next week or two – I will be back to you on Monday with some planned dates for these. These meetings will afford Clubs/Districts the opportunity to ask questions – we won’t know all the answers but we will do our best, and it will provide you with the tools to brief your participants on what the Season plan is.
We of course cannot guarantee that these date targets will be met – when we have the government ok for when Community Sport can start again, you will be the first to know!
