Important information – Please read

The information below sets out the basis upon which we are able to offer summer hockey camps. Please ensure you have read the information below before signing up and follow it when attending. Compliance is essential if we are going to be able to run all of the sessions as planned.

Format of half-day summer hockey camps

To ensure we offer safe, fun, quality coaching that follows England Hockey and Government COVID-19 advice, the half-day summer camps will run for 2.5 hours with a maximum of 20 players per session. For those that have been enjoying the summer evening hockey for Juniors, the summer camps will run on a similar basis. There will be groups of 5 players with 1 dedicated coach for the whole session. Each group of 6 will play on a distinct area of the pitch and will not mix with other groups. Players will be asked to remain 2m apart from one another, not to touch equipment other than their own and not to bring kit onto the pitch (other than a water bottle).

Please ensure your contact details are up to date on LoveAdmin when registering for Summer camps as we will use these to contact you. If parents/guardians are not on site, the coach will assess the injury and call the parent/guardian to ask them to return to the club. In case of serious injury, emergency medical assistance will also be requested.
