All matches are going ahead as planned this week, however, we would like members to read the advice on the England Hockey Website regarding the latest Covid-19 advice:
In addition we would like to draw particular attention to the following part of this advice and ask HHC members to follow this:
- 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: https://twitter.com/Xenioshockey/status/1235819830562832384. A warm smile and thanks of appreciation to officials may be more appropriate at this current time.
- For government advice please go here
Junior training and fixtures will be going ahead unless otherwise advised – please keep checking email and teamo for updates.
Naturally we expect members to follow Public Health England advice regarding your own health and care for others. Please help us help each other in this unprecedented time for all.
