3rd Dec (2020)Impact of Local Restriction Tiers on return of hockey from 2 December

02.12.2020
Following on from the government update for sport issued on the evening of 1 December, England Hockey can now confirm details for clubs, players, officials and associations.
In general terms the news is positive that clubs will be able to train and play matches, however there are now significant challenges related to travel that are likely to interrupt adult league activity.
The revised Tiers set out by government are more restrictive than the ones introduced in October. A key change announced relates to travel arrangements in Tier 2, where car sharing is now not allowed outside of your household or bubble and will apply to adult teams travelling for hockey.
For clubs in Tier 3, training and matches can take place but only for players and teams within the same Tier 3 Area. The same restrictions on car sharing apply as in Tier 2. Clubs are encouraged to welcome players that cannot access their usual club due to the restrictions.
The key changes are as follows:
Junior (under 18) and disability hockey has exemption and can continue across all Tiers. Cars can be shared if necessary as long as safer travel guidance is followed. Volunteers supporting junior hockey can travel.
Adult hockey is more restricted, as below:
Adult hockey in Tier 3:
• Players can only travel within their Tier 3 area to reach their club or to play matches within the same Tier 3 Area.
• Players that are members of Tier 1 or 2 clubs cannot leave the Tier 3 area to get to their club.
Adult hockey in Tier 2:
• Training and matches can take place.
• Car sharing is not permitted, meaning that teams must travel individually or in households/bubbles to matches.
Adult hockey in Tier 1:
• Training and matches can take place.
• Car sharing is allowed if following government safer travel guidance.

11th Dec (2018)Urinating at the side of a hockey pitch.

We are seeing an increasing number of complaints regarding urinating at the side of the pitch. As we are sure you will all agree, this behaviour is not only unpleasant but also a contravention of the EH ‘Respect – Code of Ethics and Behaviour’ – Disrepute Offence, not to mention in some cases a criminal offence. We expect all members to refrain from such behaviour. However, in the event of such incidences, in keeping with the revised Disrepute Complaint Regulations, we kindly ask that these be referred to EH as a Disrepute Complaint in the first instance. It is likely that offenders will face a suspension.
