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.
