**Please be aware that if you have not completed the below actions, you will not be allowed to train/play**
We are really pleased that England Hockey is now moving towards at Step 5 of their Return To Play Guidance. This means that, with government approval, competitive hockey can be played, both training and matches – outdoor and indoor. This is great news as local fixtures can take place.
What does this mean for me?
In order to adhere to Government regulations all players & clubs are required to follow Guidelines.
As such, every member who wishes to train/play hockey for Isca HC needs to do the following:
2. Read, understand & sign England Hockey's "Individual Consent for Participating in Hockey under Covid-19 Restrictions" form - University of Exeter students, you will need to make sure you have stated Isca on this form.
3. Make sure you are signed up to our club website and can login. We will be transitioning to selecting players via the website so you will not be eligable for match selection/to attend training if you have not signed up. It is your responsibility to update your availability via the website to let your captain know if you can play or not.
If you have not signed up already, please do so via here: https://iscahockeyclub.clubbuzz.co.uk/join
