Important Reminder - FHC Has Not Lifted Ban on Organized Field Hockey Programming

Posted by CLFHA on Jun 12 2020 at 03:17PM PDT in 2019-20 Indoor

UPDATE AS OF JUNE 30, 2020 – Field Hockey Canada has advised that the insurance broker is continuing to negotiate on our behalf and indicates it may be another few weeks before this is resolved.

By now, many of you have seen emails and information in the news about the reopening of sport and other amenities in our province. Although we are all excited to get back to field hockey we need to have a prepared and safe return plan.

Important Reminder

*Field Hockey Canada has NOT lifted its ban on all organized hockey programming and activities.

FHC has no insurance due to the COVID-19 pandemic.* We are working closely with FHC and the other provinces to provide a safe return to hockey as soon as possible.

If you are coaching players, you will be personally liable for any injuries or illnesses incurred by the players.

We anticipate a comprehensive COVID-insurance policy to be available and will notify you when this happens. You must have attestations, waivers and be fully insured, including COVID indemnification before you return to play.

Kind Regards,
Field Hockey Alberta, CLFHA, CJFH
