COVID Information for Opposition Teams


Halifax Hockey Club welcome you to Park Lane. We are extremely happy to be operating at Step 5 of the England Hockey "Return To Play" pathway and therefore have a few extra rules and processes in place to allow us all to play hockey and all remain safe whilst doing so

All players, coaches and officials should follow NHS advice should you feel that you have symptoms. If you display any symptoms of COVID-19 after playing hockey, contact the club’s Covid Officer for further information (including contacting NHS Test & Trace).

Players, coaches and officials should self-assess before attending Park Lane and must not participate in any hockey activities should they be symptomatic.
