Q: How does the new Government rule of 6 impact hockey off the pitch?
A: Off the pitch participants must remain in socially distanced (2m) groups of no more than 6 people. Each group must be clearly separate from another and not mix. This includes whilst waiting to access the pitch, after you have finished your session/match and left the pitch or in the clubhouse pre or post the session/match.
Spectators need to register, upon arrival - with the NHS QR Code or via the written register. As players are deemed spectators when not within the pitch all over 16s (participants and spectators) should register on arrival.
In addition to the advice above, please note
- Ensure that all participants (players. coaches, managers, physio etc.) have completed a Participation Agreement
- Forward your attendance register to your club Covid Officer for forwarding to EH Track and Trace.
- Ensure your participants have performed a self-screen health assessment before leaving home.
- The bar may is open for drinks and snacks (please see bar guidelines) but we are unable to provide post-match teas at present.
