Bracknell moves to South East Conference
A message from BIHC Chairman Rory Gavin:
I am pleased to announce that with effect from season 2015/16 Bracknell Ice Hockey Club will be moving to South East Conference.
The reason for the move is that there is a lack of clubs in SE region and the board of EIHA need one SW club to switch to SE. This year I received a invite from Geoff Hemmerman (EIHA Director) and Allison Taylor (Chair SE).
Having reviewed the current situation and bearing in mind that OHA are planning on introducing an U14 team in the next season or two I felt it was in the interests of our members to switch. A meeting of coaches was held and those present agreed a switch would be beneficial for our members.
Before agreeing to accept the invite I also held a meeting with the parents of current SW U13 parents to explain the situation and they also agreed the move would be in their interests.
Following this consultation I formally accepted the invitation which then needed to be ratified at the EIHA Board meeting being held on 21/22 February 2015.
I have had confirmation today that the board have agreed to Bracknell switching to SE
There will be a meeting in the next few weeks where the officers of SE Conference will attend Bracknell to answer any queries from parents, players and coaches. I will advise date and time as soon as it is confirmed.
I believe this is a positive step forward for our members, however if you have any queries please feel free to contact me.
Level 2 coaching Course
With concussion being one of the most common injuries within ice hockey Kate Cady, Head of Physiotherapy for the EIHA, is promoting awareness of this condition
with management being the key for this life threatening injury.
Pittsburgh Penguins’ Sydney Crosby was perhaps the game’s most high profile player to suffer with concussion and he remained out for two years after trying to ice too quickly and suffering from returning symptoms, while skier Natasha Richardson sadly died from her injuries following a fall and there have been several high profile cases in the media with the medical team for Tottenham receiving criticism for sending goalkeeper Hugo Loris back to play after losing consciousness.
The recognition of concussion is not only important but also the management and safe return to play.
Monitoring of players should last 48 hours as symptoms may be delayed and players should never return to the game if they have symptoms.
Information about the management and recognition of this life threatening injury will be available on the medical section of the EIHA website.
A new twitter account for headcheck has been launched and information will be tweeted regularly to provide any updates. Please follow eihaHEADCHECK
