Statement from England Hockey concerning COVID-19

eh_shield_blue.jpgStatement from England Hockey concerning COVID-19
Please see below a statement from England Hockey concerning COVID-19 and the current suspension of domestic hockey. This is also available through the main website.
Domestic hockey activity suspension extended until June 30
England Hockey has today taken the decision to suspend all hockey activity until June 30.

Currently hockey activity is suspended until April 15 but, with the continuing social restrictions caused by Covid-19, this extension is pragmatic in the circumstances and provides clarity for our clubs, players, officials and volunteers. We have asked that this national position is replicated at a local level by counties, leagues and independent hockey providers.

It is hugely disappointing to curtail hockey activity in this way and there will be many league and cup competitions which will not now reach their natural conclusion. The implications of the decision affect different areas of England Hockey activity in different ways, details of which can be found below.

We are continuing to offer support to our clubs in this difficult period and our local Relationship Managers are available as normal to support in any way they can. A list of our Relationship Managers and their contact details can be found here. We are also in contact with Sport England to best access the support they are putting in place for clubs, and will communicate more in the coming days.

Finally, the health and wellbeing of those in the hockey community is our overriding concern so please follow the government guidance and stay safe. Please search #StayInWorkOut on social media for tips on how to stay active indoors.

England Hockey suspends national hockey activity
England Hockey suspends national hockey activity

ehbnews.jpgIn light of the ongoing effects of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and government advice, England Hockey has taken the decision to suspend its nationally run hockey activity.
This includes our competition and domestic events programme, Player Pathway activity and national youth programmes until at least 15 April. We have already issued an update with regards to our AGM on 17 March.
We would urge leagues, clubs, schools, Player Pathway centres and others who deliver hockey on a local level to support this approach.
This decision will impact activities at differing levels and scale. We will continue to monitor the situation carefully and react as best we can during these unprecedented times. We'll keep everyone in the hockey family as up to date as possible and look forward to hockey returning to normal when the time is right.

In relation to schools activity, it is of course up to individual schools what they deliver in schools. However we would not recommend playing fixtures against other schools.
n.b. No decisions have been made for any England Hockey events scheduled for after 15 April.

Umpires need to be aged between 13-21 years, ideally having already achieved their Level 1 unassessed (or above) umpire award. However if they are actively working towards this, they will still be considered for selection. Any umpires without a current qualification will be required to have completed and passed the online rules test prior to the event.
The successful Young Umpires will be on camp from the evening of Saturday 25th April preparing for the games on Sunday 26th April. Accommodation and meals will be provided and each umpire will receive an umpiring shirt. There is an entry fee of £40 for the Young Umpire Challenge if an umpire’s application is successful.

Ball Patrol at the 2020 FIH Hockey Pro League
eh_ball_patrol.jpgBall Patrol at the 2020 FIH Hockey Pro League
06.03.2020 www.englandhockey.co.uk
Applications have now opened to volunteer and become a member of the Ball Patrol team at the FIH Pro League Matches and other England Hockey events in 2020.
We are looking for young people aged between 15 to 18 to be in our Ball Patrol team for all the Great Britain home matches from 2 May to 14 June.
Ball Patrollers must be fit, have a good knowledge of hockey and the rules, be able to follow play, understand umpire decisions and have good concentration levels during matches.
In addition, there are other match protocol requirements that require the services of the Ball Patrol Team and therefore there may be some match days where a team members role will solely be delivering these
You can apply as an individual or as a group from a club, school or other organisation. A group can be from four to eight participants. Applications close on 21 March 2020
A briefing pack and presentation will be supplied to support all interested applicants to prepare for their training and assessment and it will outline the role and skills required to be a Ball Patroller.
Shortlisted groups and individuals will be invited to attend training and assessment at England Hockey events in 2020, including the matches/tournaments identified in the Ball Patrol registration pack.
Ball Patrollers will need to be available for a minimum four of the eight match days. However it helps if you can give as much availability as possible across the event days.
Due to the time period of the league and its proximity in relation to crucial exam time,  the Ball Patrol squad will be larger than has traditionally been appointed at tournaments. Therefore there is some flexibility around appointments for each match day and this will be done in a timely fashion.
For more information and to register you / your groups interest please complete the short registration form here
We look forward to hearing from you. If you have any queries or require any additional information please contact -email-

Harrogate Boys Under-18 finish as runners-up in EH Boys Under-18 Indoor Finals

harrogate_u18.jpgHarrogate Boys Under-18 finish as runners-up in EH Boys Under-18 Indoor Finals
Over the weekend Harrogate U18 boys played in the EH indoor national finals at Telford finishing runners up to a very strong East Grinstead HC.
Beating, Ashmoor, Belper and Saffron Waldon in the pool stages and Seven Oaks in the semi final, the final against EG was a close and hard fought match. Harrogate subbed their goalie with 3 minutes to go in search of an equaliser only to lose a late goal to make the final score 1-3.
Given these boys came from 7 different schools and given the total lack of training they did incredibly well being the highest team goal scorers over the weekend with Ben Collinson winning the individual highest scorer with 11, 5 more than anybody else. They showed incredible attitudes and did Yorkshire and the North proud.

Harrogate Boys Under-18 Results: 7-0 W v Pelper; 10-2 W v Saffron Walden; 4-1 W v Ashmoor; 2-3 L v East Grinstead; 3-1 W v Sevenoaks (Semi-final); 1-3 L v East Grinstead (Final).

Final: East Grinstead 3-1 Harrogate.
Semi-Finals: East Grinstead 2-1 Bowdon; Sevenoaks 1-3 Harrogate
Pool B Placings: 1) Sevenoaks P4, 12pts (GD +8); 2) Bowdon P4, 7pts (GD +5); 3) Team Bath Buccaneers P4, 5pts (GD 0); 4) Repton P4, 3pts (GD-5); 5) Ip[swich - East Suffolk P4, 1pts (GD -8)
Pool A Placings: 1) East Grinsted P4, 12pts (GD +15); 2) Harrogate P4, 9pts (GD +17); 3) Ashmoor P4, 6pts (GD -6); 4) Belper P4, 3pts (GD-11); 5) Saffron Walden P4, 0pts (GD -15)

Sunday 12 January 2020: Girls Under 10 Week 4 v2

yhalogoblue.jpg Sunday 12 January 2020: Girls Under 10 Week 4 v2
Division 6 of yesterday's Girls Under-10 Week 4 (v2) session has been amended to show as a four-team division after the withdrawal of Thirsk 3.
In four-team divisions all teams play each other twice.
All results previously entered by teams have been copied into the newly revised fixtures.
We would be grateful, therefore, if all teams would check the results entered for accuracy and correct if necessary.
We would also be grateful if all teams would enter any missing results to the updated Divisions 6.

Thank you - Andy Pettigrew, YHA Web Manager

League Fixtures Postponed on 30 November 2019

yhalogoblue.jpgLeague Fixtures Postponed on 30 November 2019
YHA Men's and Women's league matches postponed due to frozen pitches on Saturday 30 November 2019 have been moved en bloc to the slip date of Saturday 15 February 2020.
Teams may decide to play by mutual agreement on a vacant Saturday or Sunday between now and Sunday 5 January (at the latest). This would leave other Sundays in January and February free in case of more bad weather postponements without using even more weekends up to the end of the season for this purpose.
All teams are reminded that start times and venues shown on the YHA Website for 15 February 2020 have been moved from the original 30 Nov fixture and will not necessarily be correct.
Home teams will need to reconfirm start time and venue with your venue admin and your opponents and then update the YHA Website as necessary.
Once match details have been confirmed please remove the "
Fixture moved from 30 Nov 19 - home team to re-confirm match details with opposition" note from your fixture(s).
If you have any issues with reconfirming start time and venue with your venue admin or opponent’s please talk to your Division Representative as early as possible.
There are still fives matches from 30 November with no result input, nor showing as postponed.
We would be geateful if the clubs involved: University of Leeds (1  x Men and 1 x Women), Kingston-upon-Hull (2 x Men) City of York (1 x Women) would add a result or 'postpone' the fixtures and we will move them to 15 Feb 20.
Failure to do this by the end of the week will mean that these fixtures will need to be rearranged according to the League Rules.

Women's League Division 5 South - Chapeltown 3 and Rotherham 2

yhalogoblue.jpg Women's League Division 5 South - Chapeltown 3 and Rotherham 2
The Women’s League have approved the amalgamation of Chapeltown 3 and Rotherham 2 for the remainder of season 19-20.  This amounts to 9 matches.
Both of these teams were supported teams, relying on players from the team above to support and develop the play of others in the teams.  When they asked for supported team status, both teams believed they could honour the rules for supported team status.  However both teams have discovered that is not sustainable, not least since Rotherham lost many of their players after the divisions had been decided.  In addition, all Division 5s have 10 teams which mean they have 4 blank dates with no fixtures.  If both Chapeltown 3 and Rotherham 2 withdrew from the league, then that would mean even fewer matches, which is why the decision was made.
June Smith - Women's League Secretary - 28 Nov 19
