With the increased announcements of sports not going ahead in 2020 due to COVID-19, SIRU is pleased to announce that our Junior Competition will be going ahead.
Following recent meetings with both the SIRU Board, and all SIRU Junior Club Presidents, a final list of dates has been set, and we hope to top that off with a list of locations to match in the coming weeks.
Some of our clubs have commenced training already, under the guidelines set by ACT & SNSW Rugby Union and the NSW Office of Sport. Most clubs will return to training this week however, as of 1st July, all clubs can return to regular training, with some COVID-19 protocols still in place.
The 2020 season will commence on Sunday 26th July, with six Gala Days to be held, finishing on 20th September (all dates are below).
Locations and further details are to be confirmed in the coming weeks.
With a commitment from all 11 Clubs to compete in 2020, the SIRU Board and staff are extremely pleased to still be able to offer a competition for the participants.
The SIRU Junior Season will have a non-competitive focus in 2020, with the removal of Finals and Champions for 2020. The aim of this is to allow all participants to go out and focus on participation and enjoyment, rather than results.
This will also allow SIRU to reduce the travel for families, which is all important during this time as travel for sport over a season can become quite expensive, especially in a zone as large as ours.
