Ice Hockey UK, Scottish Ice Hockey and the English Ice Hockey Association have been working with partners from across the sport to provide guidance on how we may return to play following the easing of restrictions by the UK and devolved governments.
A full return to rinks plan is being developed in partnership with the Ice Rink Managers Association, Scottish Ice Rink Association, Scottish Curling, British Ice Skating, UK Active and the home nations sports councils.
We continue to show our support as a sport to the many front-line and essential workers who have supported us all in staying safe and healthy.
Whilst advice is continuing to change over time, we have developed a flexible plan to help guide us over the coming weeks and months allowing people to start to put in place the practical steps required for resuming ice hockey.
First and foremost, we will follow government advice to protect the safety of our community and work with UK Active to ensure we are following appropriate industry guidelines.
Season planning continues within the national associations and club officials are encouraged to continue communicating with their designated league managers.
