12/14/2020 Season Update and Covid Information

Greetings and Happy Holidays to our Back Bay Youth rugby family !!

I hope this finds you well and staying safe !!

I wanted to get out a quick update on where we are currently and what we hope to expect going forward . Firstly , as we try to return to play , which has not yet been presented to us from SoCal Youth Rugby, we need to understand that each region is different and are under state guidelines of what you can and cannot do.

I have submitted to Costa Mesa, our anticipated practice plan which would start up in January ( I have a zoom call on this 12-16-20) with Covid getting worse I'm not sure what info will come out of that but I'll be sure to pass along .... what has been proposed by SoCal is :


ALL age groups from U8-18 would start up games in middle of March and conclude in May prior to Summer 7's in June starting up -

Rules this year possibly could be altered as the main focus is to get kids back playing as much as possible as many as possible -

Starting out we will be only allowed small groups to train , spread out, coaches masked , and will be under strict protocol from the city .... I understand their are some discrepancies from area clubs , but we set the standard here at Back Bay and do not compromise it . We will be diligent in our safety to align with what the city requests as we can lose our fields should we not .


We are a long standing club , with plenty of great history, and its going to important that we all work together to get this train rolling on down the tracks as we look for normalcy and a return to the competitions we all crave to play in our great sport !! Have an excellent holiday season and as soon as I hear any news I'll be sure to let everyone know !! GOO SHARKS !! 


Thank You,
Jeff Bonnett
