04 Sep 20  Return to Hockey  In preparation for a full return to League Hockey EH require that all participants, players and officials, must complete an "Individual Consent Form" prior to taking part in a match. This is to allow individuals to be located by the track and trace system in the event of a Covid outbreak folloing a hockey match. Once the form is completed details, will be passed to the  relevant club and/or organising body. To complete the form go to the following webpage:

Included on the page is a link to a "YouTube video" showing how to complete the form  

09 Jun 20  AGM  As there is no indication of the lifting of social distancing guidelines, it has been decided that the AGM should now take place prior to the start of the next season. It will be held at short notice (hopefully two/three weeks) once a venue can be booked. There is a vacancy on the committee for a Secretary. Anyone who is interested should contact Hon Sec. There are also vacancies on the general committee. Names to Hon Sec .

If it becomes apparent that we cannot hold a meeting, a virtual meeting will be held with all members given reports and the opportunity of electing new committee members by email. Proposals for appointments and rule changes to Hon Sec.

 07 Dec 18  Umpires Comment Sheet.  An "Umpires comment sheet" has been added to the printable docs section. It is to be used to report to CHUA any serious injuries that should be notified for insurance purposes. Neutral pool appointed umpires should also use the form to report any instances of bad behaviour or attitude by players and spectators, or poor hospitality and match  arrangements by the home club.

07 Dec 18   Spectators  Recently there has been several instances of poor/unsporting behaviour by spectators and coaches at matches. Umpires are reminded that in such instances, they should stop the match and require the team Captains to resolve the issue. This includes the issue of pitch encroachment. Should the situation not improve, a personal penalty for the team captain should be considered.

 1 Nov 18  Emergency Contact Info. Neutral pool umpires are advised to carry Emergency Contact info to improve aid given to themselves, in the event of an emergency, whilst away from home. A suggested format can be obtained from the "Printable Docs"  section of this website. It might also be useful to inform the home team of the whereabouts of this info prior to the start of a match.
