Titans COVID-19 Update

Titans COVID-19 Update

The Titan’s Executive Board would like to reassure our members that we are dedicated to proceeding with planning a 2020 season, as we do hope to have a season. Rugby Canada has announced that the Novel COVID-19 virus spread has suspended rugby sanctioned events and play until April 10th, 2020. At that time, RC will reassess the situation, but we are hopeful that we will know more in the next 2 weeks about what the rugby season will look like. We are currently looking at all angles and are trying to be proactive with this situation. Please be patient, we will try to keep our community informed on the Facebook groups/page and Instagram

Thank you for your time,

Titan Up!
