Following the IHUK, EIHA & SIH-UK joint statement yesterday the NIHC executive committee have discussed the implications and the way forward for the club.
The executive committee is disappointed that our teams will not be able to complete their competitive seasons, especially knowing how tirelessly our players have worked all year to get to the positions they are in. However, we support the decision of the National Governing Bodies as the health and wellbeing of our members is the number one priority.
After looking over the joint statement, Sport England guidance and the government updates, the committee has agreed to continue with club training for the near future. The executive committee will continue to monitor the situation as well as the guidance provided by the relevant bodies.
We would like to take this opportunity to remind all of our members good hand hygiene is essential and should you feel unwell, fall in to a priority group or have recently travelled please follow the government guidance. Further guidance is available here – gov.uk
The NIHC executive committee would like to take this opportunity to thanks all members, including coaches and managers, for their hard work, commitment and determination throughout the 2019-20 campaign.
