Planning Safe Hockey

England Hockey has  published an important new guide entitled Planning Safe Hockey.
 
The guide is intended to be used as a checklist by anyone delivering or planning hockey activity. England Hockey strongly encourages all clubs/organisations and their members to familiarise themselves with the guide and also to address any unsafe practices.
 
The guide was created in memory of Luke Hobson, a 14-year-old junior player who tragically died on 28 March 2019 having sustained a fatal impact head injury. The guide was created with the co-operation of Luke's parents.

 

We all have a responsibility to ensure the safety and enjoyment of all those who play hockey; it is therefore important that we take steps to minimise risk to all engaged in hockey, enhancing their experience and reassuring players, parents and guardians.
 
The rules of hockey are constantly evolving, therefore it is imperative that all those who plan and deliver hockey activity do so in a way that ensures the safety of all involved in our sport.

Face Masks

Face Masks for Defenders

The following is guidance only.

If your son/daughter wishes to wear a face mask when defending a penalty corner please purchase one from a recognised hockey supplier. You may wish to discuss with your child’s coach the need for a face mask.

If you decide the purchase is necessary LRHA Schools and Youth may be able to help with the cost.
