Further to our announcement earlier in the week that the CHC management committee is currently reviewing England Hockey guidance before we can move to Stage 4 of the EH Return to Play plan, we are able to confirm that we have started addressing the risk mitigations required by EH.
One of the key prerequisites for Stage 4 compliance is for all participants (players, coaches, officials, volunteers) to sign a Participation Agreement. This agreement is signed only once and it indicates the individual’s agreement to the terms and conditions and Code of Ethics and Behaviours. Only individuals who have signed this agreement will be permitted to participate in hockey activities when we move to Stage 4. There will be NO exceptions.
In order to avoid any unnecessary delays, we are advising members to sign up now here.
Once signed up you will receive email confirmation. Please ensure that you keep this confirmation email safely on your phone and/or print it and keep a copy in your stick bag. You will be required to show it prior to each session (match or training session) in which you choose to participate.
We shall make further announcements in the coming days. In the meantime, we remain at Stage 2 and we urge all club members, despite their eagerness to progress to Stage 4 as quickly as possible, to please continue to observe and respect the guidelines currently in force. These guidelines are for the protection of all.
