Return To Play: Update: 10/01/20

Inverleith Hockey Club
The Scottish Government have imposed a national COVID-19 lockdown. This means all our hockey provisions are now on pause.

A happy new year to all. We hope you are keeping well.

Following the introduction of the latest COVID-19 lockdown, the government has stopped hockey for people over 12. Under 12’s are permitted to practice, but the required social distancing rules and attendance restrictions make it impractical to run our sessions for this age group.

This means that all our hockey programmes are now on hold and it looks unlikely at this time that there will be a return to hockey before 1st March.

We are looking at how we can deliver as much hockey as possible, when the COVID-19 situation improves. This may involve running youth sessions through April rather than breaking up at Easter, and extending the season for all into July. We will also look at operating youth camps in April and August.

We have put on hold collecting the planned second subscription payment until the COVID-19 position is clearer.

Stay safe.

Paul Bowyer 

Club President
