As 2020 comes to an end and we look forward to 2021 with hope of a more normal world, I want to update you on Club happenings and where we are at as a Club and Community.
I want to thank all of you who registered for our short “compressed fall training season”.
Despite the weather conditions, late start and the restrictions imposed by the Provincial Health Office, BC Rugby, and Rugby Canada, we managed to get out on the field, run some drills and play touch.
My deepest thanks to a Coach Andrew for his work getting us COVID Compliant.
Thanks to to him and Coach Ged for running practices Tuesday and Thursday and special thanks to Ged for stepping up when Andrew couldn’t attend for a couple weeks due to more restrictions by the PHO.
I also want to recognize and thank Joe, Taryn and Walter for coming out every week to help set up the fields per the COVID Safe Rugby Plan.
We gained a few new players interested in either coming back to or starting a rugby career.
Thank you to Fiona for continuing a Brit Lions tradition of sponsoring a Christmas Family from Delta that are in need this year. Many thanks to all the members and their families who donated over $1000!!
Amazing community involvement!!
We have some other community initiatives planned for Club Members to get together and help out folks in Delta.
Check the social media for more details.
Finally, I Want To Wish All Of You The Best For The Holiday Season.
All The Best To All Of You In 2021!!!!
Brit Lions Rugby
Moving forward into the New Year we have plans in place to continue as soon as the current restrictions are lifted January 7th 2021
. To help plan and provide BC Rugby important data we have posted a poll to all Club Members on our Social Media Survey Monkey and Facebook groups)
This survey is asking if you will be comfortable returning to a planned contact rugby format in the Late Winter/Spring 2021.
Please take the time to respond and also please share with any Club Members who may not be aware or following currently on SurveyMonkey and Facebook and Instagram.
This survey is not just important to Rugby BC so they can plan and schedule but is also important to the life of the Brit Lions Rugby Club(est.1929).
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.
