Nassau RC remains closed per recommendations from the BOC:
"The Bahamas Olympic Committee (BOC) stands in solidarity with National Olympic Committees around the world in doing anything within our power to halt the spread of Covid -19. In doing so, and in keeping with the resolutions to contain Covid -19 that have been revealed by the government of The Bahamas, we strongly recommend a suspension of activities within the country’s Federations, Associations, and clubs.We are certain that, as with other challenges, we will overcome this pandemic threat. Meanwhile, we encourage all athletes, coaches, and supporters to maintain the spirit of determination that has allowed us to overcome so many past adversities. We believe that the ideals of the Olympic movement will shine brightly in our actions, even in the darkest of times."
