Dear Members 

Following a board review of the Covid-19 situation and based upon the Government’s ongoing plan to ease social restrictions, the following has been concluded.

Changes to the 2020 season 

We have plans to return to competition on the 22nd of August. This will be a tournament format and will complete the season in the available time. The specific format details will be shared via your stakeholder committee member. 

We will follow government and Sport England guidance on ‘Returning to Play’ and have provided frameworks and guidance for your clubs via your stakeholder members. We have also released our venue protocols to ensure required social restrictions are preserved. Please contact your stakeholder committee member for referenced guidance and documentation. 

BISHA are committed to bringing hockey back to you as soon as possible in a safe environment for members.
