Return To Training

by | Sep 28, 2020 | News, Rugby

After many weeks of preparation including the formulation of our Return To Play (RTP) Plan, we are pleased to announce that we will resume training activities this week, Tuesday 29 September.

Training will continue each Tuesday and Thursday starting at 6:30pm at the Waveland softball fields just south of the golfcourse entrance and close to the tennis courts.

There are several conditions that must be fulfilled before, during and after training for anyone in attendance.


You must complete the USA Rugby registration. This is $25 and at this stage only the player/training option need be selected. This can be upgraded later if and when we resume playing activites.

World Rugby COVID Module

We are requiring all players to complete the COVID education module from World Rugby. While this is not required by the first training session, it need to be done in a timely manner and returned to the club.

Personal Equipment

Please bring hand sanitizer, wipes, your own water, and face mask. We will have sanitizing suplies for shared equipment but you are responsible for your personal hygiene and the safety of others.

Symptom Checker

All participants must complete the self symptom checker PRIOR to coming to practice. This is required before every training session and club activity.

Practice Plan

Unless all the above requirements have been met, you will be sent home from practice. Upon arrival, please report to the Compliance Officer who will take and record your temperature. If your temperature is above 99.5 degrees, you will be asked to return home and isolate.

  1. A list of prohibited activities as defined by the State of IL includes scrums, lineouts, mauls, rucks, tackles, touch rugby and other physical contact
  2. Allowable activities include fitness, skills and flag rugby (provided there is zero physical contact between players)
This season of training is voluntary.  Many of us have families, significant others, or work in healthcare and we don’t know what people are dealing with.  If you are not comfortable training, stay home.  Attendance this fall is essentially a wash.  If you aren’t able to make it to training it will not be held against you.  The club is happy to talk to you individually remotely if you can’t make training.
