COVID-19 requirements

Rugby is a high-contact sport, so we are requiring player vaccination in order to keep our teammates and community safe. All players need to receive at least one dose of an approved COVID-19 vaccine by November 6th to keep playing with the Mermaids. Vaccine information for Santa Barbara can be found here. Please contact us with questions; we will gladly help anyone navigate the vaccination process so that they can play with us!
