Covid- 19 update - 1st Jan 2021 - Tier 4

Following England Hockey’s guidelines our  expectations are as follows:


Adult Hockey

  • No league hockey is anticipated from January

  • No adult training will occur in January

  • Leagues will be shortened with the end of season extending into April

  • Teams are to be allowed 2 weeks preparation / training before league matches restart

  • No Adult membership fees will be charged for the Second half of the season due to the uncertainty of planning the season

  • Instead of this adult match fees will increase to £15 per match to compensate for membership costs


England Hockey guidance is that U18 Hockey is exempt from the restrictions, but not the virus so please be sensible as we return to training and please increase your focus on COVID Measures, TEAMO track and trace, handwashing, and social distancing before, during and after training.


 Colts Hockey – U18

  • U18 training can continue, but matches can only be within your local Tier 4 area so nothing can be arranged without agreement in advance from Rachel Green (Colts Coordinator) and Tracy Marsden (Colts Fixtures Secretary) to prevent confusion  

  • We will therefore restart Sunday Colts training on Sunday 10th January 2021

  • We will restart Hotstars training on Tuesday 12th January 2021

  • We will restart Hotshots and Hotsticks training on Thursday 14th January 2021

  • Colts membership fees will be due in full for the second part of the season

  • We will try to increase match activity as soon as the restrictions allow

  • New Colts training times are in effect for 2021. Please check out Teamo and our website for the slight changes which should help us to deliver more matches and camps in the future.
