USA Rugby Release
USA Rugby has been actively monitoring the current status of COVID-19 as provided by the Center for Disease Control (CDC). Following further consideration, USA Rugby’s suspension of all sanctioned rugby activities will continue through May. The welfare of our rugby community and social contribution to limiting the effect of the virus remains the priority, as we hope everyone is remaining healthy and safe.
The current status of the pandemic has enforced a continued hiatus and projected return to play. USA Rugby will continue to monitor CDC guidelines as it relates to social distancing, community sporting events, and group gatherings. We will also continue to take into consideration USOPC and World Rugby’s advice through this process. If the CDC status changes and a potential return to play date is feasible, those details will be communicated to the membership immediately.
An update on the suspension of play and determination of the USA Rugby Club 7s National Championship will be provided by June 1, 2020.
USA Rugby would like to collectively thank every individual on the frontlines of this pandemic, from first responders to health professionals. Many of these advocates are members of our rugby community, to whom we send our best wishes and appreciation.
Members of the USA Eagles National Teams are leading LIVE at-home workout sessions with the community, where participants are encouraged to donate to foundations directly supporting those individuals on the frontlines. Visit the USA Rugby Facebook page every Thursday at 1PM ET to participate and remember to donate.
