COVID-19 and Return to Play

7th August 2020: "England Hockey announces Hockey is now at Step 4 of our Return To Play Guidance. With the right steps, competitive activity can resume - both training and matches – outdoor and indoor."

However, Derbyshire Player Pathway activities are not yet ready to move to Step 4. We are reliant on the facilities that we use being open, ready and available, and we will need time to work through  and implement the EH requirements for safely restarting larger group training sessions. 

As we will not be holding any Development Centre coaching sessions this year, all players will be invited to attend for Academy Centre assessment at the restart of our Player Pathway activities. We hope that this will be in October.

For your diaries, the dates identified by England Hockey for us to hold Academy Centre activity are listed below. Where possible, we will endeavour to use these dates in order to avoid clashes with other hockey activities.

Should the start of the season be delayed further we will review in line with EH guidance.

The Derbyshire Player Pathway Handbook for 2020-21 will be circulated to all registered on the EH Player Pathway website, once details have been finalised.

In the meantime, please familiarise yourselves with the information available from England Hockey regarding measures that need to be in place and adhered to regarding Covid safe hockey, here: England Hockey Getting Back on the Pitch - Step 4 Guidance

All players, coaches, managers, officials, etc, will need to register on the EH Participation Agreement prior to taking part in any Player Pathway activity, select option 4. This only needs to be done once.
