Return to Rugby

The BRFU continues to work in partnership with the Government of Bermuda in the development and delivery of its return-to-sport protocols

Clubs, youth groups, academies and national team programmes must adhere to new guidance when returning to training or competitive play. Each club, group or programme must ensure that the following criteria are met in order to return-to-sport:

  • Review all BRFU and Government of Bermuda guidance, ensuring you are aware of the phase that the sporting community is in, per the Department of Youth & Sport guidance
  • Identify two COVID Officers for your club, group or programme and submit their names and contact information to the BRFU
  • Complete a Club Declaration Form and submit to the BRFU
  • Ensure that all players are registered with the BRFU ahead of session training or competition
  • Record attendance at all training sessions or competition for contact tracing purposes
  • Ensure that all players attending training sessions or competition have completed lateral flow testing as per the Department of Youth & Sport’s testing guidelines
  • Encourage players to take a photograph of each lateral flow test showing a negative result as a personal measure, in the instance that spot checks are performed during competition by the Ministry of Health
  • Where requested, ensure that all players complete a Declaration of Participation

Clubs and Programmes must also continue to follow local government guidelines, along with any restrictions that may be implemented. The latest updates can always be found here:
