viaSport Sport Specific Return to Sport Plans and FAQ: BC Rugby Return to Sport Plan Expected by Weekend, Early Next Week

viaSport which is the province's voice on Return to Sport guidelines has published a list of Provincial Sport Organizations that have submitted Return to Sport Plans (RTSP).

At the time of writing rugby isn't on that list of 38. Rugby Canada just approved their national plan last Friday and passed it down to the provinces, expect the provincial union, the BCRU, to approve their provincial plan by the weekend. We're expecting the BCRU Return to Sport Plan to be publicly available on the viaSport website by early next week.

The Return to Sport Plan for rugby is unlikely to have any surprises, they have to follow the viaSport guidelines. You can read the Football RTSP here. The 41 page document gives you a good idea of what a contact sport RTSP will look like, they even project to when BC will be in Phase 3 - "As noted, Phase 3 of the provincial restart plan is anticipated to be approved by the PHO for September 2020. It is anticipated that Phase 3 will allow for the contact sports to resume."

However it's wait and see with rugby if their RTSP will have any insights or projections.

Here are some links on the viaSport website.
