Latest Advice from England Hockey

Posted by Martyn Webb on 15 December 2020

For clarity, please note the guidance has not been amended since being published on 2 December following the introduction of the Local Restriction Tiers, merely reissued for the benefit of anyone moving into a different Tier from 16 December.

For clubs in Tier 3, training and matches can take place but only for players and teams within the same Tier 3 Area. As in Tier 2, car sharing is not allowed in Tier 3 outside of your household or support bubble and applies to adult teams travelling for hockey. Clubs are encouraged to welcome players that cannot access their usual club due to the restrictions.

Junior (under 18) activity and disability hockey has exemption and can continue across all areas. Cars can be shared if necessary as long as safer travel guidance is followed. Volunteers supporting junior hockey can travel.

Adult hockey is more restricted in Tier 3, as below:

  • Players can only travel within their Tier 3 area to reach their club or to play matches within the same Tier 3 Area.
  • Players that are members of Tier 1 or 2 clubs cannot leave the Tier 3 area to get to their club.
