Inline Hockey Ireland has put together this guidance to give clear instructions to teams and players on how the 2021/22 season will begin in light of the Covid-19 situation. We are committed to a safe continuation of competitive inline hockey and believe the procedures outlined will help ensure any risks are minimised. It is imperative that all comply and take responsibility to maintain hygiene and social distance where applicable. Any teams that fail to comply with the procedures will be disciplined accordingly.
Persons must not attend if:
If a team is heavily affected by Covid-19, potential contacts or local lockdowns allowances will be in place to postpone games.
All persons should monitor any symptoms up to 7 days after the game day.
Team managers are responsible for ensuring that team lists are up-to-date and attendance accurately recorded. These will serve as contact tracing for team staff & players.
Spectators will now be allowed. This will initially be restricted to parents/guardians of underage players. An increase to this will be now considered at the start of January.
All spectators must fill in The Rink’s Covid Track & Trace form, which can be found here.
People allowed to enter the venue:
Face coverings are mandatory for anyone aged 13 or older and should be worn on arrival and throughout your visit (including while changing), unless you are eating/drinking, or exempt.
Face coverings do not need to be worn while playing.
Be Distance Aware
We ask that you are respectful of others around and keep your distance from other people as you move through the venue. Whilst the requirement for social distancing has been removed whilst playing & spectating, distancing is still required in certain areas around the venue, including at toilets.
Sanitisation and Cleaning
We ask that you sanitise your hands on arrival and regularly wash and sanitise your hands throughout your visit. The Rink will have enhanced cleaning before and after game days and additional cleaning during the event.
