Lamo Players and Parents,
Great News! We WILL be having a rugby season this year! The Lamo board and coaches have been working furiously to create a COVID compliant program for our youth players.
When is it?
The youth (U8/U10/U12/Middle School) program will run monthly for 3 months from December 7th - February 27th. Practices will be Monday/Wednesday evenings (U8 only Monday) and Saturday afternoons. Looking for High School info? It is tentatively scheduled to begin after the shifted High School football season ends - check back here in early 2021 for an update!
Where is it?
Practices will be held at Wilder fields (Fields #1 & #2)
How is it COVID compliant?
Similar to other youth sports programs running through Fall, Lamo will run a series of “camps” with strict limits on the number of players (12 max) in each camp. There will be 3 camps per age group. We have created a system of safety protocols which will need to be strictly followed.
Note: We are limiting player numbers this year (max 36 per age group), so it will be first come/first served.
What is the cost?
Cost per player will be unchanged from 2020: $250 for U8, $300 for U10/U12 and $375 for Middle School. These costs include your USA rugby registration. Our primary expense is renting the Wilder fields. We are anticipating the fee will cover costs with the reduced numbers.
But is it really rugby?
Our coaches have crafted a number of COVID compliant drills, exercises and challenges. Ball sharing is allowed, but contact is not. We will focus on skills and conditioning to keep our players sharp, fit and ready for a return to rugby matches, as soon as permitted by county health guidelines.
