University of Leeds Women's 8s looking for friendly fixtures
leedsuniv_blue.jpgUniversity of Leeds Women's 8s looking for friendly fixtures
University of Leeds 8s (Development Squad) are looking for a couple of fair friendlies against other development teams or teams that had to pull out of leagues due to inability to put a squad out every week. We are looking to enter this team into the yorkshire league next year so any friendlies would be greatly appreciated to get them prepared for the standard of hockey for next season. We are fairly flexible on dates also.
If you think your club and team would be interested in a friendly then please contact me asap.

Rules Changes 2015 – Your Views Please
eh_logo01.jpgRules Changes 2015 – Your Views Please
The following e-mail has been received from England Hockey and you are encouraged to participate in the consultation process by visiting the surveymonkeys website and completing the survey.

"As you’ll be aware, the International Hockey Federation (FIH) has announced some changes to the Rules of Hockey. Details can be found on pages 5 - 7 of the  2015 FIH Rules Book.
These changes take effect at International level from 1st January 2015 and will be implemented in the Investec Women’s Hockey League (IWHL) and the Now Pensions Men’s Hockey League (NPMHL) upon the resumption of the outdoor season on 31st January 2015. 
Beneath the IWHL and NPMHL, the changes will not be implemented in England mid season, with one exception - we will allow the use of the new style face masks at all levels of the game with immediate effect.
We are now seeking the views of the hockey community to determine whether there are any overwhelming reasons why we should apply to FIH to opt out of the introduction of any of the new Rules beneath the IWHL and NPMHL and, if so, at what levels and/or age groups.
Click here to read the full article about the Rules changes

We would therefore appreciate you completing the survey which can be found at Hockey Rules Survey


This survey should take approximately 10 minutes to complete and will close at 5pm on 23rd February 2015.
When the survey has closed, the feedback we have gathered will be analysed and then considered by the England Hockey Board at its meeting on 17thMarch.  We will confirm our decision on the adoption of the new Rules beneath the National Leagues by 31st March."

North Masters Hockey
North Masters Hockey
As coordinator of Masters Hockey for the North I have been pushing the organisers of our age group teams (O-40, O-45, O-50, O-55) to organise open trials where anyone that their club or county association thinks might be of a good enough standard can come along and try out.
The first such of these  for Over 40's - born 1976 or earlier - the age group eligibility is one year lower this year to facilitate England Hockey selecting teams for the 2016 World Cup, will be held at Brooklands this coming Sunday, 25th Jan, from 12-3pm.
Please pass this message on to anyone you think might be interested or who might be able to identify talented Yorkshire players who should get a trial for the North O-40's team?
Anyone interested should contact Brad King at -email- .

I am trying to establish county level Masters Hockey at O-40 and O-50 level, and organised the first Inter-Counties tournament at Timperley in November.
Unfortunately there was no Yorkshire representation as it clashed with the Yorkshire Vets Cup and I couldn't find anyone in Yorkshire to organise teams.

Rearrangemnt of Matches Postponed on 17 January 2015
yhalogoblue.jpgRearrangemnt of Matches Postponed on 17 & 18 January 2015

All league matches postponed on 17 January 2015 due to the cold weatherhave been moved en bloc to Saturday 28 March 2015.
Clubs will need to book pitches, and add venues and start times (once agreed with opponents) to fixtures on the YHA Website. You may if you wish by mutual agreement play these fixtures earlier than 28 March.
Any fixtures already rearranged to 28 March (only three, all in the Men's League) will need to be rerarranged to another date prior to 28 March.
Fixtures postponed on Sunday 18 January will need to be rearranged in line with League Rules. These must be rearranged within the next seven days to be played within 15 days of date of postponement.
There are still a couple of games games from 17 January with no result and not marked as postponed. In order to allow us to move these, if postponed due to the weather, clubs need to enter the games as 'postponed' with a reason for postponement on the YHA Website.
The outstanding matches are:
Men: Div 2 City of York 3 v Wakefield 3 and Div 4 South Kingston-upon-Hull 3 v Wakefield 4
Women: Div 5 Bradford University 1 v Louth 1
If you encounter any problems with any rearrangments contact your Division Representatives.

Rules of Hockey - 2015
eh_shield_blue.jpgRules of Hockey - 2015
12.01.2015 www.englandhockey.co.uk

In December 2014, the International Hockey Federation (FIH) introduced changes to the Rules of Hockey designed to enhance the experience of players and spectators.  These have been available for worldwide adoption and effective at international level from 1st January 2015.
Following consultation with the England Hockey Rules & Regulations Advisory Group, National Programme Umpires Association and England Hockey League Committee, England Hockey can confirm that the rule changes announced by the FIH will be implemented in the Investec Women’s Hockey League (IWHL) and the NOW: Pensions Men’s Hockey League (NPMHL) when the outdoor season resumes at the end of January 2015.
The changes will also apply to the remaining three rounds in the Investec Women’s Cup and NOW: Pensions Men’s Cup, noting only IWHL/NPMHL teams remain in the competitions.
As previously advised these are the only domestic competitions where the new rules apply apart from permitting the use of new style face masks at all levels of the game which is introduced with immediate effect across the game.

As previously advised England Hockey will be consulting more widely with the hockey community as to whether we apply to FIH to opt out of the introduction of any of the new Rules for 2015-16 for the wider game and, if so, at what levels and/or age groups. A decision will be made on adoption of the new Rules after this consultation.
