Greetings Brit Lions and all our extended rugby family!
I am happy to announce that we will be OPENING REGISTRATION FOR SPRING TRAINING AT JOHN OLIVER PARK APRIL 08th!!
We will be taking to the field on Thursday, April 15 @ 7pm (other practice days TBA)
This has been a long and drawn out closure for our sport and I, like the rest of you are itching to feel the grass under our feet and see our rugby mates again.
I want to thank all of you for staying safe and communicating with me and the Executive. We hear you and can't wait to be back.
We have had to adjust to the changing restrictions and guidelines that the Provincial Health Office and Via-Sport have placed on all clubs. They haven't been easy and at times frustrating for everyone. Safety for our members is the utmost importance and we know you all feel the same.
Getting back on the field next week under the current guidelines may not be what we are used to but it will give us the chance to shake off the cobwebs and maybe some of that Lockdown Blues at the same time start getting into shape for some big plans coming this Summer.
RETURN TO JOHN OLIVER
We will be following the Phase II guidelines and Provincial Health Officer's Orders for the time being. This means the following regulations MUST be followed;
Please log into your SPORTLOMO site starting April 07 and closing April 22 and select
Brit Lions Training Spring 2021
You will also have to RSVP to each training session as we did in the fall.
Training will run for 12 weeks which will take us to July 8th.
Hopefully by then we can get back to something more normal. If restrictions are lifted before then we will of course adjust as needed.
Yours in Rugby,
Located in the heart of the Lower Mainland the Brit Lions Rugby Club plays out of Delta BC and is only a 45 minute drive outside of Vancouver. We have all your BC Rugby needs with our Division 2 Senior Men's Rugby Team, Division 1 Senior Women's Rugby Team, Junior Rugby Team (ages 13-18yrs), Mini Rugby Team (ages 6-13yrs) and NEW Rookie Rugby Programs (ages 3-8yrs) offered through the City of Delta.
The COVID-19 Pandemic has changed how we train, play and celebrate the sport of Rugby. Rugby Canada, the national governance body for Rugby, Rugby BC the Provincial body and the Provincial Medical Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry have provided guidelines and protocols to lead our sport in making rugby safe for all players and coaching staff. The Brit-Lions have embraced and met the designated protocols. We welcome back our veterans and new members as we navigate the new face of rugby.
