Information about returning to play and an important survey for you to complete

We are all excited about the easing of lockdown and the news that we should be able to start playing hockey again soon. Whilst we are still waiting for full guidelines from England Hockey who await clarity from Government we are making plans for getting back on the pitches at ISSC Rushmere.

With this in mind we would like our members to complete a short survey to tell us how you feel and to help us plan activity over the spring and early summer. The survey is accessed from the link below, please complete it before Monday 15 March.

Adult East Leagues

We have been notified that the adult league will not continue this season. Full details here:

We are hopeful however that we will be able to arrange local friendlies, and we anticipate entering teams into the Summer League which we expect to go ahead from mid-May.


Junior Competitions

We are yet to hear from England Hockey about any resumption of junior competitions.


Training, social hockey & fitness

We are arranging midweek sessions in April so we can all get back on the pitch, and see our many hockey friends.
