Statement from Department and Federation

NOTE: The following is a statement from the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development and the Nova Scotia School Sport Athletic Federation.

At today’s meeting between the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development and the Nova Scotia School Sport Athletic Federation (NSSAF) we worked together on a plan for student-athletes to keep playing rugby safely.

Rugby Nova Scotia has agreed to manage the rest of this rugby season, including regionals and provincials, with the support of NSSAF.

Over the summer, NSSAF will work with government, Rugby Nova Scotia, medical experts and others on safety in sports. NSSAF and the department will also work together to review the memorandum of agreement over the summer on how it can work best for student-athletes and everyone else involved.
