British Ice Skating, the Ice Rink Managers Association, Ice Hockey UK and English Ice Hockey Association can provide more details on the return to training as part of step two of the Government’s roadmap out of lockdown. These measures will come into force no earlier than 12th April.
It has now been advised that all disability sport can take place as part of step two. This means that all persons who have a disability will be able to take part in both individual and group training.
As has been already revealed all under-18 activity will be allowed to resume. The cut off for under-18s is measured from 31 August 2020, in line with school years. So those who were under 18 on or before 31st August 2020 will be able to train in step two.
Government rules do not currently allow for any adult skating to take place as part of step two. This is still being challenged by all organisations.
We appreciate your patience as information is released, we are continuing to work with the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport to get as many people back to ice sports as soon as possible.
