All HS rugby players that are not in a winter sport. We will begin to hold practice outside at Ken Dukes Stadium for the 2021 season at Medina High School. The practice schedule is subject to change as we will be sharing the facility with other spring sports currently practicing. In the case of weather with snow, ice or rain; practice will be moved indoors.
Outdoor Practice Schedule:
Through 3/31/2021: Tuesdays & Wednesdays from 7:30pm-9:30pm and Thursdays from 3pm-5pm outside at Ken Dukes Stadium. Check the Google Calendar link below for any changes/updates.
Our practice sessions will be a combination of conditioning and skill work, progressing into advanced aspects of rugby such as; rucking, lineouts, phase play and defensive structure.
As part of the Return-to-Play program, we must continue to adhere to the same COVID guidelines outlined below.
Athletes can arrive 10 minutes prior to the start and must depart 10 mins after practice ends. Athletes & Coaches must wear a mask to and from training. All athletes must bring their own water (no team water supplied). Carpooling is discouraged. Athletes & Coaches must remain 6ft apart until instructed to do differently. All participants will have their temperature taken upon arrival and must answer symptom questionnaire. This info will be logged. As we move through phases we will be able to change how we train.
Thank you for your understanding as we work through the Return-to-Play protocol. We are following strict guidelines from the Medina City School District, the Medina Athletic Department and the Ohio Board of Health. We will do our best to keep all our athletes up to date on training so they can get their own work in.
