**CLUB UPDATE: Covid Restrictions 15th Oct’20**

In light of the new restrictions being introduced by the NI Executive, we would like to inform all members, at youth and senior levels, that all hockey activity at Bangor Men’s will temporarily be suspended with effect from tomorrow, Friday 16th October.

While Ulster Hockey is currently seeking clarification as to whether hockey training would be allowed, even in limited numbers, we have decided, in the best interests of all our players and coaches at all levels, that no training will be conducted during this restricted period.

We do understand, in particular at youth level, that this will be disappointing, however we will endeavour, circumstances permitting, that the same number of training sessions are delivered across the season.

The Club will continue to monitor developments and will get everyone back on the pitch as soon as it is safe to do so.  Thank you for your continued understanding, stay safe and hopefully we will be back in action soon.

Junior Hockey Update – 2020/21 Season

COVID-19 Update (2nd Sept’20):  BMHC Youth 2020 / 2021

Due to current restrictions we are down a significant amount of pitch time, unfortunately we will not have access to the BGS pitch and Aurora is closing earlier than normal in the evening. There are also restrictions on numbers attending sessions.

As a result we are proposing to postpone the start of U9 (P3,4,5) and U11 (P6&7) groups until the beginning of October, by which stage BGS will hopefully be available. We would propose to run this group for an extra month in 2021 to make up for the delayed start. U9 and U11 to continue on a Tuesday evening – venue and time to be confirmed.

We are aiming to commence U13 (Y8&9) and U15 (Y10&11) groups in September as follows:

  • U13 Aurora Tuesdays 6pm to 7pm beginning 15th September
  • U15 Aurora Thursdays 6pm to 7pm beginning 10th September

Unfortunately due to current restrictions in place and reduced pitch availability we may have to restrict numbers, therefore we require pre registration via Spond (link on Junior Hockey page) in order to gauge numbers, confirm places and finalise details.
