Fall 7's Season-Officially Cancelled

Dear CV Rugby Players and Parents,

 

On behalf of the coaches, administrators and advisors for Cumberland Valley Rugby Club, I want to provide an update on the fall 7’s rugby season for the High School, Junior and Youth Divisions.  On September 10, the below guidance was issued through Rugby PA:

On August, 28th USA Rugby restructured its Return to Play stages, altering the restrictions of stages 3 and 4. Rugby PA is currently in Stage 3 of the new Return to Play stages. This allows for limited contact (touch rugby) intra-squad competition only. Rugby PA will move to Stage 4 of the revised stages on Friday, September 18th. This will allow for limited contact (touch rugby) inter-squad scrimmages. No full contact inter squad competition will be permitted until Stage 5.

Based upon this information and no clear cut understanding of when stage 5 might be approved, the coaches have decided not to attempt to hold a fall season, instead preparing for our Spring season in earnest now.  We know that this decision may be difficult to understand with some fall sports playing now, including football.  Unfortunately with the touch format and limited opportunities for competition we did not believe there was a compelling expectation of a season getting underway this fall, or carrying one to completion. 

Assuming there is interest and we receive permission from the High School, we will begin spring workouts and fitness one afternoon each week in October.  We are also requesting space in the fitness center for weightlifting beginning in November.  If you are interested in getting a jump on spring fitness now, please respond to this message at [email protected] with the following information:

Player Name

Parent Contact name

Cell Phone for responsible Player or Parent

Email for responsible Player of Parent

As soon as more information is available about the early workouts, or the spring season we will be posting that information on the club website at cvrugby.org. 

You can expect that barring any significant setbacks from now, we will be opening registration in January of 2021 for the Spring Season. 

Until we can again gather on the pitch, please stay safe and well,
