Changes to the England Hockey Leagues
eh_shield_blue.jpgChanges to the England Hockey Leagues
www.englandhockey.co.uk 04.04.2018
At the March 2018 board meeting, England Hockey agreed changes to the structure of the Investec Women’s Hockey League and Men’s Hockey League. The changes will be implemented in the 2019-20 season. These changes are the first step in adapting to the evolving landscape of the Hockey Pro League (and international player availability) and requests from clubs to review the domestic structure.
The most recent consultation (February 2018) strongly supported an interim restructure to the leagues and this is outlined beneath. More than two-thirds of teams in the England Hockey Leagues responded to the consultation as well as more than 50 Regional Premier League teams.
The changes will be revisited again after the Tokyo Olympics in 2020 (and after two years of the Hockey Pro League) with a view to further developing the structure to support domestic hockey to progress for years to come.
England Hockey is ambitious about creating a structure that encourages clubs to continue to develop, strive for success at the highest level of European competition and support our international success objectives.

The General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR)

www.englandhockey.co.uk 21.03.2018
GDPR will come into effect on 25 May 2018 and will replace the Data Protection Act (DPA). Legal advice suggests that GDPR does not present a drastic overhaul to the current DPA framework but rather, it plugs gaps, or strengthens existing rights and obligations and defines certain concepts more precisely.

Yorkshire Senior League Hockey Bad Weather Rearrangements for 17 March 2018
yhalogoblue.jpgYorkshire Senior League Hockey Bad Weather Rearrangements for 17 March 2018.
Fixtures postponed due to bad weather on 17 March 2018 have been moved en bloc to 7 April 2018.
Any of these ‘en-bloc moved’ fixtures can be rearranged to another date TO or BEFORE Sunday 15 April 2018.
Once you have confirmed start time and venue information with your venue, confirm match details with your opponents and then update the fixture on the YHA Website.

END OF SEASON DATE
PLEASE NOTE: The end of season date has been extended to Sunday 15 April 2018
ALL FIXTURES MUST BE COMPLETED BY SUNDAY 15 APRIL 2018
All rearranged fixtures (not those postponed fixtures moved by the Competitions Committee from 17 March to 7 April) must be approved by Division Representatives. This includes any 7 April fixtures moved to a different date.
If you have any problems or queries contact your Division Representative.

AGREED POSITION ON RELEGATION AND PROMOTION
Relegation and promotion will be in line with the Yorkshire League Rules.
Two Key points of note:
1. If extra teams are relegated from the North league then extra teams will be relegated through the Yorkshire divisions
2. The league committees reserve the right to reorganise teams in the bottom divisions in order to give the best regionalised groupings
.

Potential Bad Weather Postponements 10 & 11 March 2018
yhalogoblue.jpgPotential Bad Weather Postponements 10 & 11 March 2018
The weather forecast for 10/11 March (as of today, Sunday 4 March) is much better and unless there is significant change during the week it now looks likely that pitches should be OK.
If this changes, and if there are difficulties in rearranging fixtures to the deadlines shown above, all clubs will be advised of any further extension to the end-of-season date.
Before then please try to rearrange fixtures by the current (extended) end-of-season date of Sunday 25 March 2018.

Bad Weather Postponements 3 & 4 March 2018
yhalogoblue.jpgBad Weather Postponements 3 & 4 March 2018
There are still fixtures for 3 & 4 March that are not shown as postponed or with a score added; PLEASE UPDATE THESE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE TO AVOID FINES. When shown as 'postponed' with reason, we will move them to 24 & 25 March respectively.
Fixtures postponed due to bad weather on 3 & 4 March have been moved en bloc to 24 & 25 March 2018.
PLEASE NOTE:
  • A note has been added to each of these fixtures stating the date they were moved and advising the home club that they need to add the start time and venue information and then confirm the match with your opponents.
  • Any of these ‘moved’ fixtures can be rearranged to another date TO or BEFORE 25 March 2018.
HOME TEAMS WILL NEED TO:
  • Confirm start time and venue information with their venue.
  • Confirm match details with opponents
  • Once start time and venue information is confirmed with your venue and has been confirmed with your opponents, update the fixture on the YHA Website, remove the note, and add any pertinent match info to the fixture.
  • Rearrange any fixtures that were previously moved to 24 or 25 March 2018 to a date BEFORE 25 March (if there is a fixture clash for either team). You can play league matches in the evening if needed, or even play two games in a day to get them in before the end-of-season deadline of 25 March (it’s been done before)!
If have any problems or queries contact your Division Representative.

YYHL Boys & Girls Under-10s at University of Leeds on 4 March 2018
yhalogoblue.jpgYYHL Boys & Girls Under-10s at University of Leeds on 4 March 2018
The Boys & Girls Under-10s YYHL Session on 4 March 2018 at the University of Leeds has been called off
"From Carl Smith, Head of Hockey, University of Leeds:
To all Hockey customers and partners of Sports Park Weetwood, University of Leeds,
Unfortunately due to the severe weather, Weetwood has been forced to close as all pitches are unplayable. The facility will re-open on Monday 5th March meaning that all bookings and fixtures due today, Friday, Saturday and Sunday are cancelled.
We hope that we have made the call early enough to give you all plenty of time to get the message out to home teams, travelling teams and officials."

Bad Weather Postponements for the Weekend of 3/4 March 2018
yhalogoblue.jpgBad Weather Postponements for the Weekend of 3/4 March 2018
The weather forecast for this coming weekend, 3/4 March 2018, is not good and if the forecast is right we could lose the entire league programme to snow covered/frozen pitches.
All Clubs are urged to make a decision about fitness of pitches as early as possible to prevent unnecessary journeys.
Please make sure that you update any postponed fixture on the YHA Website to show as 'postponed' with the reason for postponement.
If 75% of fixtures in a league are postponed due to bad weather all postponed fixtures will be moved en bloc to the slip date of Saturday 24 March 2018.
Clubs that have already rearranged fixtures for Saturday 24 March (13 matches in the Men's League, six in the Women's League) will need to rearrange those matches for Sunday 4,11 or 18 March 2018.
Please note that the official end of season date is the weekend of 17/18 March. Matches, other than bad weather postponements moved en bloc to 24 March, not played by 18 March may be declared null and void.
The weather forecast for the weekend of 10/11 March is also not looking promising This could entail further en bloc movement of postponed fixtures from 10 March to Saturday 7 April 2018.
More information will be made available once we know the full impact of bad weather postponements over the next two weekends.
Please Note: Matches postponed on Saturday 3 March CAN be played before 24 March if clubs so wish. Clubs could also choose to play evening matches, or play more than one game in a day, as a way of completing league programmes. (You would obviously need your opponent's agreement to do this!)
