As elsewhere in society, the Coronavirus is impacting the current

and future activities of England Hockey. Below details England

Hockey’s position in relation to community hockey, the England

Hockey AGM, international fixtures and England Hockey offices.

Community hockey

Community hockey will continue to take place unless we are

advised otherwise by government, and we will continue to update

the Hockey Family on the situation. Please check with your local

league if you are unsure if the game is going to take place. We

would encourage all players to follow the widely available

guidance of public health with regards to people maintaining good

hygiene to avoid spreading of the Covid-19 virus.

In a hockey context, we would advise clubs and other hockey

venues to ensure washing facilities have appropriate provision of

hygiene products and urge players to follow the public health

guidance in environments where they are in close proximity to

others. If any players, officials or coaches are feeling unwell,

please follow the government’s advice to self-isolate and

therefore do not take part in hockey-related activities. We also

recommend our more elderly players and officials consider whether

they should take part in hockey activity.

All players and officials are responsible for their own safety

equipment (goalkeeping kit, facemasks, mouth guards, whistles,

shin pads etc) and we would encourage everyone to ensure they are

clean and not shared amongst team-mates.

Instead of the traditional handshake at the start and end of the

game, we are encouraging players to tap sticks – watch the video here Tap sticks

A warm smile and thanks of appreciation to officials may be more

appropriate at this current time.

England Hockey AGM – Tuesday 17 March

The AGM will take place as planned unless circumstances change.

The meeting at Bisham Abbey begins at 7:30pm. If you are

uncomfortable attending in the circumstances then duly authorised

representatives are advised that you can instruct a proxy to cast

your votes until 7:30pm on Sunday 15 March. Please click here for

more information.

FIH Hockey Pro League & England Hockey domestic Finals

England Hockey is continuing to monitor government advice in

relation to the hosting of events. At this juncture, there are no

changes to our advertised programme. We will keep participants,

ticket buyers and other stakeholders informed if this position

changes.

International teams’ tour to South Africa

The GB men’s and women’s squads were both due to travel to South

Africa on Sat 13 Mar for warm weather training camps (with match

play for the women) as part of their Tokyo preparations. After

due consideration, it has been concluded that this is not in the

best interest of players and staff, and they will not be

travelling. With no international programme activity over the

weekend of 13 and 14 Mar, players are available for selection for

the final Men’s and Investec Women’s Hockey League matches of the

season.

England Hockey Offices

England Hockey offices remain open for business. In the event the

situation escalates and we need to close the offices, we are

confident we have the capability to continue to provide services

to our customers, through home working and mobile applications.
