Barnes Minis and juniors rugby is back on following lockdown at the normal times from Saturday 5 December, for Minis, and Sunday 6th December, for Juniors and Colts.
We are now at Stage E on the RFU Road Map for the return to rugby. You can see an explanation of the adapted rules we will be playing under for age groups up to U13 here and for U14-18 here. Covid-risk mitigations are still important – including the pre training health check on Teamsnap; recording attendance on Teamsnap availability function (for track and trace), and the additional hygiene measures. But contact rugby including tackling is now back with adapations, including no scrums and no mauls. Tag rugby also now returns for Under 5s to Under 8s.
