Hello Lions Community,

I wanted to confirm what is happening with Lions Rugby and the Washington State Rugby. We are following the lead of our state and schools are suspending any rugby activities for at least two weeks. RugbyWA is doing the same thing; there will be no matches at least through March 28th. As a club we have decided there will be no practice for at minimum of two weeks with the hope of returning the week of March 29th. 

This is very fluid and somewhat of a moving target. As we get closer to our target dates we will continue to monitor our surrounding and will make return-to-play decision based on the health an safety of our athletes and their families.

This culmination of events is new to all of us and your understanding and flexibility going forward is very appreciated. Our hope is for everybody to participate in a worthwhile season, send our high school team to nationals, host our annual auction and finish with our year end BBQ. Our intention is to have complete season. But we don’t know what we don’t know. 

We will continue to use TeamSnap for our communication. There will be an update sent by the end of next week. If you have any questions in the meantime please reach out to any of our board members.

Thank you in advance,

Hugh Gladner

Lions President
