COVID 19 - UPDATE 27.4.21
Following guidance from Government the RFU have moved rugby to Stage D2 as of Monday 26th April
This means we can move to some contact training (still excluding scrum and maul) and adult and age grade matches with Adapted Laws (no scrum and maul).
A copy of the RFU Roadmap can be found HERE. Please go to our dedicated COVID-19 page for further details of the club's updated policies and processes.
COVID-19 RETURN TO RUGBY POLICY AND GUIDANCE 2021 (Version 7) 10.3.21
These are truly unprecedented times and Oakmeadians RFC is committed to return to rugby through all age groups and sections when it is safe for everyone to do so. Government guidelines are changing from week to week, with the gradual easing of the latest lockdown, training will be possible from 29th March 2021, as long as we take care and follow all the health and safety guidance. The following procedure is a working document and can change at any time. Oakmeadians RFC has taken advice from RFU, government and the local council.
‘All other age grade rugby must remain at Stage A until 29th March - meaning individuals can exercise alone or with one other from another household until Monday 29th March.
We are pleased to be able to publish our provisional plan for a phased return to full contact rugby. It’s wonderful to see light at the end of the tunnel and we are as delighted as clubs and players across the country that they will soon be able to resume training and, subject to each step on government’s roadmap being achieved, progress towards contact fixtures and an exciting season of rugby for 2021/22 from September. Please note the Return to Community Rugby Roadmap has been revised to follow steps on the government roadmap. Please therefore disregard previous versions and only share the new ‘green for go’ roadmap below. We have removed Stages B and C as they are no longer currently relevant due to changes in government restrictions. Over the next couple of weeks, we will provide stage-by-stage guidance on our Return to Rugby page which will include all the information you’ll need for a gradual return to contact rugby. Guidance will include equipment that can be used at each stage and videos with our coach development team.’

We have removed Stages B and C as they are no longer currently relevant due to changes in government restrictions.
While we are all incredibly excited about getting back out on the pitch, we should also be conscious of the need to build-up gradually after a long lay-off. The focus for all activity over the next three months should be on player retention and player safety.
