HARLEQUINS AUGUST 13TH Update

aPPROVED FOR rUGBY oNTARIO RETURN TO PLAY!

As of August 13th, 2020, the Harlequins have been approved by Rugby Ontario for Return to Play protocols. This is based on RO's official "Return to Play" (RTP) guideline for sanctioning.

Based on this approval - we'll be providing the following for Players and Parents:

  • Instructions to upgrade Social Memberships to Non-Contact (Sanctioned) Membership. Link to register through SportLomo here
    Please be certain you have the discount code - if not please email dmclean15@gmail.com
  • Updated practice guidelines for Players & Parents - including equipment, what to bring, the protocols for the field, check-in and the clubhouse. While these involve more work for both player/parent and coaches - it is intended to keep us ALL safe & healthy!
  • Instructions on PER SESSION COVID-19 Attestation procedures through SportLomo - this is MANDATORY to attend any sanctioned rugby event. This is NEW and DIFFERENT from our Google Forms used for Social events.
  • Instructions for Check-In and Contact Tracing - both both Players/Parents and Coaches
  • Coaches instructions for PER SESSION attendance tracking & player groupings.  We encourage everyone to visit the website for more information. We are working with our Coaching Staffs to prepare & update our planning, and include how this modifies our rugby planning and progressing from fitness to skill-training to small games to RUGBY!

We are also in constant communication with Rugby Ontario on modified programming we are looking to offer as Ontario moves through our Stages. We continue to hope & plan for rugby programming and will update as our plans finalize.


PRACTICE SESSIONS

You must be registered in order to participate in practice sessions (see above). The practices sessions will be announced solely through TeamApp - please email dmclean15@gmail.com if you do not have access to TeamApp. This includes cancellation of practices due to weather, etc. Also in TeamApp will be the proposed practice plan for the session.

Stay safe and take care!

Rugby Values

TEAMWORK
Teamwork is essential to our sport. We welcome all new team members and include all because working as a team enriches our lives. We play selflessly: working for the team, not for ourselves alone, both on and off the field. We take pride in our team, rely on one another and understand that each player has a part to play. We speak out if our team or sport is threatened by inappropriate words or actions.

RESPECT
Mutual respect forms the basis of our sport. We hold in high esteem our sport, its values and traditions and earn the respect of others in the way we behave. We respect our match officials and accept our decisions. We respect opposition players and supporters. We value our coaches and those who run our clubs and treat clubhouses with consideration.

ENJOYMENT
Enjoyment is the reason we play and support rugby union. We encourage players to enjoy training and playing. We use our sport to adopt a healthy lifestyle and build life skills. We safeguard our young players and help them have fun. We enjoy being part of a team and part of the rugby family.

DISCIPLINE
Strong discipline underpins our sport. We ensure that our sport is one of controlled physical endeavour and that we are honest and fair. We obey the laws of the game which ensure an inclusive and exciting global sport. We support our disciplinary system, which protects our sport and upholds its values. We observe the sport's laws and regulations and report serious breaches.

SPORTSMANSHIP
Sportsmanship is the foundation upon which rugby union is built. We uphold the rugby tradition of camaraderie with teammates and opposition. We observe fair play both on and off the pitch and are generous in victory and dignified in defeat. We play to win but not at all costs and recognise both endeavour and achievement. We ensure that the well-being and development of individual players is central to all rugby activity.
