COVID-19 Update!

COVID-19 Working Group Update

We are pleased with the governments announcement allowing ice rinks to reopen along with the Department for Culture, Media and Sport approving the NGB’s return to the rink plan.

We can also confirm the National Ice Centre is planning to open early September providing the successful installation of their new ice plant. A confirmed date will be available over the next couple of weeks.

The NIHC COVID-19 working group have been working to create a COVID risk assessment in line with the Governments Return to recreational team sport framework. Upon completion, this document will be rolled out to all club officials (Executive Committee, Coaches, Team Managers) as well as players and their parents.

We are hoping to have all the necessary documentation in a robust, workable format ready to begin on-ice training when the National Ice Centre re-opens in early September.
