Rugby NorCal has goals of playing in January.  Along with a number of other youth sports leagues, Rugby NorCal has petitioned the state to adopt and share clear, measurable, return-to-play guidelines.

In the meantime, we have an adopted practice plan that follows the California Department of Public Health guidelines.  This involves players in stable cohorts of up to 14 players and up to 2 coaches.  The practices would be based on non-contact drills and conditioning. In all cases so far, we have to commit to this plan in order to be able to rent a field.

Rugby Norcal is setting up a "Practice-Only" non-refundable Membership that allows players to pay fees to register for USA Rugby and Rugby Norcal for $45.  This allows us to get insurance for fields and coaches.  With this, we can begin practice in December.  Once games are scheduled, this membership can be upgraded. All funds will be applied to the full dues fees.
