See here for ready4rugby guidance:See our Checklists below on what you need to do to get back to rugby at OC’s
What does this mean for OC’s
Whilst we would normally adhere to the ‘Out of Season’ rugby guidelines found in section 6 of the Age Grade Codes of Conduct during the summer months, the early finish of the season due to Covid-19 has meant that a return to fitness and activity by the seniors and some some sections has been permitted to take place at Horn Park following careful planning in accordance to the RFU, Kent RFU and government guidelines.
We are now currently preparing for our return on the 6th September for all sections and your coaches and team managers will liaise with you accordingly.
What do I need to do now – Checklists
In the meantime, take a look at our Covid-19 page for more info including Checklists to know what we are all required to do to get back to Rugby.

Kent RFU Survey on getting Back to Rugby -Kent have asked us to circulate this request, perhaps you have concerns about what will happen? Please could you fill out the survey to help Kent identify the key actions they need to take to help all clubs reboot the game in Kent when the Government and RFU give the signal that it is safe to do so. https://www.kent-rugby.org/news/survey-getting-back-to-playing-rugby-after-covid/
