2021 WHSR Season Cancelled

The Westman High School Rugby 2021 Varsity 15s season is cancelled

 

The recent announcement from the government extending the Provincial level of Red restrictions to April 30th will take away three weeks of our season.

We are hopeful we will see a Return to Play document from the Provincial Sport Governing Body to allow teams to at least train (non-contact) and maybe hold some exhibition games before the school year is out.

We sincerely feel for the students, especially our graduating athletes who have missed out on their Grade 11 and Grade 12 seasons.  We are extremely frustrated by the decisions made by the government and hope that they will recognize the need for our young people to be able to engage in sport.

Any future announcements will be released as soon as we hear any official direction from the Provincial Government, MHSAA and Rugby Manitoba.

Regards,

WHSR Executive
