The Provincial Health Office (PHO) ‘Provincial Gatherings and Events Order’ has been amended with this latest revision active from Sunday, December 19 at 11:59 pm to at least January 31, 2022. The PHO Order revision restricts the BC Organized Sport Sector in the delivery of tournament play and associated tournament travel. As a result, please note the following:
- Tournaments are not allowed, until at least January 31, 2022. The definition of “Tournaments” requires some clarification, however, where field hockey is concerned tournament structures such as the indoor tournaments traditionally held during the calendar month of January cannot now take place.
- Regular league play continues to be allowed, as is travel for those games. Further clarification as to the diversity when considering the broader definition of “regular league play” is being sought, however a green light (cross-referenced through viaSport BC) for regular league play remains in place at the time of this circulation.
Note: Field Hockey BC will make a determination as to the scheduled hosting of the BC Women’s Senior Indoor Tournament (Duncan, BC) over the weekend February 5/6, 2022 in the New Year. All Tournament registrants to date will be contacted directly and registration for this event remains open.
