COVID -19 UPDATE Jan 2021
HQ Army have confirmed that the current cessation of sport in the Army will extend until at least 15 Feb 21 and will then be reviewed in line with the current Government guidelines. Be aware that even if England Hockey allow the resumption of play at club level ahead of the review we as an association would have to apply to HQ Army for authority to resume playing before any hockey could be played in the Army. Individuals would be allowed to play for their local clubs but this would be an off duty activity.
Anyone who has submitted paperwork for authority to undertake sporting activities before 15 Feb 21 should take this as confirmation that they are not authorised.
Once we are again able to restart sport in the Army the process for authorisation will be the same as previously with Admin orders/Risk Assessments needing to be submitted via AHA to HQ ASCB for authority to undertake activities. Even when this begins everyone is reminded that participation in these events will be in line with government guidelines and therefore anyone in a Tier that has travel restrictions will not be permitted to travel and participate (travel for sport is not an essential journey).
We will of course keep you all informed of any further developments.
Any questions please do not hesitate to contact the AHA Office.

The Army has 3 Men’s teams; Senior, Masters and U25 and 2 Women’s teams; Senior and Masters. The Army teams compete regularly at Inter Service and national level as well as overseas.
