Players to Follow Various Guidelines for Training Resumption

Hockey India to allow training of upto 6 players in one group

Players will be allowed to go home and there will be no physical contact outside of what is required during normal play at training, according to the Standard Operating Procedure for resumption of training at the Sports Authority of India (SAI) Bengaluru centre.

Teams can train in groups of maximum six people in an area of 40x20m. Players are allowed normal physical contact during training but celebrations such as high fives, first bumps are banned. They have to carry their own training gear, hand sanitiser and towel. All training equipment will be sanitised after each session. Players are also not allowed contact with those from other teams.

The probables for the Indian men’s and women’s senior hockey teams have been placed in the campus since before the start of the lockdown on March 25. Hockey India stated that players and staff who are feeling homesick shall be allowed to go home.

“Government of India, SAI and Hockey India will determine the duration of this leave in consultation with the respective Chief Coaches. Each party has the option to change the duration based on information at hand. At all times the safety of the athlete and staff member is paramount,” says HI in the SOP.

If person has the virus, then that person will stay in quarantine and follow medical guidelines provided by designated medical personnel.
