EIHA STATEMENT ON GOVERNMENT’S INDOOR SPORT RESTRICTIONS ANNOUNCEMENT

EIHA statement

Today’s announcements from the UK  government will have an impact on the return to play for ice hockey in England.

The primary change is that adults (over-18s) need to adhere to the rule of six if playing a team sport indoors.

Going to the gym and fitness classes will be allowed for over six people, so long as there is no interaction or mingling between different groups of six.

Outdoor sports and activities played formally under approved guidance can carry on.

All organised activities for children – including indoor team sports – will continue to be exempt from the rule of six.

The EIHA are awaiting clarification from both DCMS and Sport England on three points before updating our official guidance.

We expect this to be published tomorrow (Wednesday).
