To all members,
Well, I think it's fair to say that none of us thought we would be in the same situation a year down the line (literally to the day!) Thank you for your continued patience and support while we navigate the ever-changing situation. It has been a truly challenging time for all of us and we are very much looking forward to welcoming you all back on the rink very soon!
We have been working with the DCMS and UKActive to gather the facts before sharing our plan with the wider community. Unfortunately, a lot of the detail remains to be seen but we will share what we know so that you can start planning as best as possible. The expectation we have is that more details will be released at some point next week, once we pass step 2 of the spring roadmap.
To summarise our plan: -
We have been working to ensure as smooth return as possible and fully understand that everyone's situation is slightly different when it comes to inter-club activities; therefore, please liaise with your regional exec and local training facility to ensure you have the most up-to-date information available.
The dates contained within this communication reflects and is conditional on the government's 'Spring Roadmap 2021' and is subject to change without notice.
RETURN TO PLAY: We will update our RTP and risk assessment template at the earliest opportunity once this information is made available. All previously submitted RTP acceptance forms are now deemed null and void. Teams are required to update their acceptance and risk assessment to reflect the guidance once published. As per, the responsible person in each team will receive an automated approval email from the National Exec once the submission has been reviewed and approved, only after which are you authorised to return and for your insurance policy to be deemed 'active'. The email will contain a link to a PDF which can be forwarded to your facility as proof. If you don't have the approval email then you are not insured nor able to adopt the BRHA's RTP.
Looking for an event in the coming months? We are committed to posting the regional and national events we know of on our website so that our members have a central reference point. Keep an eye on our website for details as they become available: https://brha.co.uk/news/372.
As ever, if you have questions or need pointing in the right direction, you can email us: firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do what we can to help.
Director, BRHA Ltd.
On behalf of the BRHA National Executive Committee.
