The Uganda Rugby Medical Society (URMS) held a Return to Play workshop conducted by Dr. Joseph Kalanzi on Saturday at Kyadondo Rugby Grounds.
In attendance were medics from the various rugby teams, representatives from the referee society, facility managers and players.
“I would like to remind the players and officials to use the online resources on the World Rugby passport that give guidance for players, coaches and administrators on what to do to prepare ourselves to safely return to the sport,”- Dr Joseph Kalanzi said.
The objective of the workshop was to take participants through what the return to play guidelines looks like in regards to SOPs and the different roles of players, match officials and managers of the rugby facilities. This is in preparation for the resumption of the rugby league starting on 6th March 2021.
“We also had a run through the different personal protective equipment and things to do with sanitization, sterilization and disinfection as well as what is done in training sessions and during games,” Kalanzi added.
In his closing remarks, Dr Joseph Kalanzi encouraged the medics to educate the players on the various protocols of return to play to ensure safety for all.
