Dear Fans and Supporters,

On March 11th, 2020, Governor Inslee of Washington state took unprecedented steps to put in place restrictions and guidance on large gatherings over 250 people based on the recent spread of COVID-19. Similarly, King County Department of Health extended those restrictions locally to gatherings under 250 people.

These are uncertain and rapidly changing times and our Seattle Saracens Rugby Club has been carefully monitoring these developments. To ensure the health of our fans, staff, players, families and others in our community, we have made the decision to postpone all training, games, camps, and events until further notice.

We are collaborating closely with BC Rugby Union, who are also taking appropriate precautions. Together, we will be working to put a plan in place should we be able to continue with the 2019- 20 season.

We have also informed our membership to take this time to be healthy, stay positive, enjoy family time and work towards a safer and healthier community. The club moto of TSPDS – (The Stuff People Don’t See) – and the common catch phrase we use “control what you can control” have never been more meaningful than they are right now.

Please continue to check back with us through our social media pages and our website at for updates as this situation evolves. We look forward to the opportunity to return to the pitch soon and be back with our dedicated fans.

Yours in rugby,

Kevin Flynn
