Some good news for our Sport: re-start for youth, until age 20, from March 1st.
Zurich, 25/02/2021 - Finally some good news for our sport!
The Swiss Federal Council has decided on February 24th, that the following new rules will be valid for sports from Monday, March 1st:
Youngsters up to the age of 20 (born 2001 and later) can train and play sports without restrictions (including contact, including competitions).
Those who have not had any contact training over the winter, must follow the Player Welfare guidelines of returning to light contact training, then full contact training, then returning to competitions, over the course of a 6-week cycle.
Adults born before 2001 can now train outdoors in groups of maximum 15 persons, without contact, while keeping a distance of minimum 1,5 meters between them. Competitions for these groups remain forbidden.
All outdoor sports infrastructures and installations will re-open as of March 1st, 2021.
As usual, we have updated our “Return to Play” documents. They can be found HERE.
The FSR is also finalizing the youth competition calendars for the re-start of competitions for young players, as well as a proposal for a new U20 competition, and will share those with the clubs as soon as possible.
In anything they do, all members of the Suisserugby Family are asked to stay very attentive and keep following good sense and good hygiene guidelines.
