COVID-19 Return to Play Update

29th July 2020

Hi All,

Hope you're keeping well.

Allow me to update you on the status of our national return to play policy. It is with the DCMS for approval and we await their response (and, hopefully, their approval of our return!).The policy includes a quick reference summary and four detailed phases - 3 for a phased return to training, and 1 for game days. All teams wanting to adopt this policy will need to sign an acceptance form and the respective team managers will need to assist the national and regional committees in enforcing this once approved.

A risk assessment guide and template will be included in the policy document to help teams carry out their own assessment for their members. It is strongly advised that teams complete this process sooner rather than later - plenty of information can be found on the, Sports England and UK Active websites.

Insurance details:

- Teams, officials and players registered in BRHA South for the 2019/20 season will continue to be insured up to and including 31 August 2020 subject to the acceptance form being signed and received;

- New teams entering BRHA South for 2020/21 will need to ensure all documentation is signed and logged on our system ahead of their return to play; however, team liability and personal accident cover won't commence until 1 September 2020. NB: I am working closely with our insurers to see if we can extend this to new teams joining the league but, as yet, we haven't received confirmation of this so please assume insurance won't be in place until September;

- Uninsured parties will need to present a copy of an insurance certificate if they are adopting the BRHA policy. If this is not received at the time of signing the acceptance form then the adoption of our policy won't be possible;

- Parties not adopting the BRHA's policy will need to comply with Bordon Roller Rink's policy and the BRHA South Executive Committee will not be involved in any capacity unless an acceptance form is signed after which time the team falls under BRHA guidance;

- Insured parties will void their insurance if found to be non-compliant with the return to play policy;

- COVID-19 is excluded from the scope of our policy as it cannot be proven where the virus was contracted. Specific wording is being added to this affect in the new policy documentation.

In terms of timescales, the honest truth is we don't know when we will hear back from the DCMS and how many iterations we may need to go through. Rest assured that as a player and committee member at both national and regional level, I am doing everything I can to move this forward as timely as possible. I knew it wouldn't be an easy task but it has taken considerably longer than originally anticipated to get to this point.

Stay safe,

Dave McGill
Director & Secretary, BRHA Limited
General Secretary, BRHA South

BRHA take over Inline UK

League Winners Announced

27th May 2020

*** STOP PRESS ***

Following our recent consultation period and latest COVID-19 update, the BRHA Executive Committee has finalised the league standings for the 2019/20 season.

As teams had all played an odd number of games, this has been calculated using a points-per-game average with the goal difference average playing the deciding factor in the event of a points tie.

Player awards and our first ever BRHA Junior Dream Team will be announced imminently!

Our website has been updated -

We now move full steam ahead in preparation for 2020/21...


Details for our AGM at the end of June will be announced soon.

Official statement regarding COVID-19 (Coronavirus)
Published: 17 March 2020
Update: 1

In light of the global pandemic of COVID-19 (Coronavirus), the Executive Committee of BRHA South would like to issue all members with a formal statement regarding the remainder of the 2019/20 season.

It goes without saying that we are closely monitoring the advice of heath and government organisations and ensure you that the health and safety of our members and spectators is paramount; under no circumstances will this be jeopardised.

Given the changing dynamic of the situation, the following is based on the information we have at the time of writing (17th March 2020). We will continue to review our position and provide you with updates as and when we feel necessary and with as much advanced notice as possible.

a) All league games and competitions have been postponed with immediate effect.

b) We intend to restart on Sunday, 17th May 2020. The already-scheduled fixtures on Sunday, 17th May 2020, and Sunday, 24th May 2020, will remain unchanged. We are working with Bordon Roller Rink on available dates for those that have been postponed; although, we note that it is highly likely these will need to be played on a Saturday due to the lack of available rink time.

c) The 2019/20 Senior National Championships will go ahead as planned and are due to take place at Bordon Roller Rink on the following dates: -

· 1st & 2nd August = B Nationals
· 15th & 16th August = A Nationals

d) Any participant that shows symptoms of COVID-19, or anyone that has been in contact with someone that has, must follow the advice of Public Health England (PHE). You are not permitted to partake in league activities for a minimum of 14 days. We strongly advise you to keep fully up-to-speed with the latest developments of this pandemic by visiting one of the following links:-

i. NHS Direct:

e) In the interest of their own health and safety, we strongly advise anyone over the age of 60 years old, or anyone with an underlying heath condition, not attend including team and match day officials.

f) Any member, regardless of role, that has returned from another country must avoid participating in all league activities for a minimum of 14 days.

g) Team training is at the discretion of the respective club and the players themselves but by doing so may nullify insurance policies held via the BRHA.

h) Members and spectators have a duty of care to themselves and their counterparts and must respect the health and safety of those around them at all times: -

i. Maintaining a distance of 2 metres where possible;
ii. Avoiding handshakes and bodily contact where possible;
iii. No spitting;
iv. Regularly washing their hands;
v. No sharing of water bottles;
vi. Supplying their own sanitiser gel;
vii. Coughing/sneezing into a tissue and disposing of it immediately or into a bent elbow;
viii. When not on the rink, please ensure flip-flops or other appropriate footwear is worn at all times.

i) The Executive Committee has been working with the management of Bordon Roller Rink to ensure they are taking all necessary measures to ensure the health and safety of our members including but not limited to anti-bacterial hand wash in the toilets, plenty of hand towels and clean showers. Any related queries should be directed to Bordon Roller Rink themselves as this is in the control of the BRHA.

j) The 2019/20 Annual General Meeting has been postponed and more information will be released in due course.

Coaching & Officials Course

10th August 2019

To help improve the standard of hockey, safeguarding, and consistency of officials for the 2019/20 season onward, the Executive Committee are implementing three important initiatives.

1) BRHA Coaching Foundation

Date & Location: 

Saturday, 7th September

1pm - 5pm

Crowne Plaza Hotel & Conference Centre, Basingstoke, RG21 3PR

Light refreshments will be provided, optional lunch menu is available at the lounge/bar.


To help to improve the overall Club experience and game days, we're hosting our first annual coaching course which is a scaled-down version of EIHA's Level 1 course. This is hosted by Pete Winn, a senior and very experienced coach of the IIHF and EIHA organisations, so you can expect professional and thorough content.


Bench Management

Game Management

Training Management & Planning

You will receive a hand-out of training drills and useful information to help improve the planning of your training sessions.

Who needs to attend?

This course is compulsory for all team managers and coaches in all age groups (including seniors) with junior players on their roster (17 years of age and younger), unless you are able to present a valid EIHA Level 1 (or above) coaching licence. Certificates by themselves won't be accepted due to expiration. Those without juniors on their roster are strongly encouraged to attend.


£30 per person which includes a DBS Enhanced check if needed.

£20 per person to attend the course only but excludes DBS Enhanced.

For existing EIHA qualified coaches without DBS Enhanced, we can arrange this on your behalf at a cost of £10 per check.

Register here:

2) Match Day Officials Workshop

On the morning of 7th September and preceding the BRHA Coaching Foundation course, we are holding our first annual officials workshop. This will be held at the same venue (Crowne Plaza, Basingstoke) and will cover important topics such as handling difficult situations on the rink, making confident and timely penalty calls, general officiator tips and behaviours, how to properly drop the puck for a face-off, etc.

Register here:

The aim is to improve the consistency of and set a new standard for match day officials in the BRHA.

After sitting the 2-hour course, you will receive a certificate of attendance. We may need to send a copy of the certificates to our insurer upon request.

Please make an effort to attend. We're encouraging managers to bring their older junior players and any seniors players that haven't reffed a game before so they learn the basics and then be paired with an experienced ref on game days to help with those difficult situations. We want more U16 players to help officiate games of younger age groups. Ref fees plus fuel will be paid as normal.

3) Safeguarding

This is a huge talking point for next season and one we are taking extremely seriously. Teams with minors on their team MUST hold a valid DBS Enhanced check for the 2019/20 season. Those that already hold this will need to ensure we have their reference number by recording it in the applicable box on their BRHA registration form ( as we need to check the status before the season commences. If you don't hold a valid DBS Enhanced check then we can arrange this on your behalf.

DBS Cost:

£10 per check (this just covers our costs)

This is included in the fee for those attending the BRHA Coaching Foundation course on 7th September.

Changing rooms will be allocated on game days when seniors and juniors are both playing. It goes without saying that safeguarding is a top priority for us so please help us by respecting the signs on the doors of each changing room as well as general safeguarding practices by having registered officials to politely ask those that are not to leave the changing rooms.

Please let me know if you have questions; otherwise, I thank you all in advance for taking the above seriously. If you are unable to attend either course then please email so we can reach an agreement.

Winter Cup 2019 - Important update & registration link

9th January 2019

There is a change of dates and format for the inaugural Inline UK Winter Cup due to unforeseen clashes with other inline organisations. We hope these changes will help attract more teams locally and from further afield with it now being a 1-day event and more cost effective for those needing to stay the night.

Each day is now allocated to a specific age group, as follows (in order of date): -

  • Under 14's = 10th February 2019
  • Under 12's = 25th May 2019
  • Under 16's = 26th May 2019

Unfortunately, we had to make the difficult decision to drop the Under 10's tournament due to several factors including available rink time and general demand. However, under 10 teams are invited to play in the Under 12's tournament.

The entry fee will remain at £150 per team with 8 teams in each age group playing a format of 2 groups of 4 teams on the day, then in to semi-finals, bronze, silver and gold medal games.

Thanks to our sponsors #SkateSkation and #DanglProductions, there's a bunch of cool prizes up for grabs including store vouchers, custom Winter Cup jersey's and more! Each player and team official will receive a tournament pass and programme and other goodies on arrival. There's loads of other stuff planned, too! Oh, and the event is being live streamed around the world so make sure you bring your A game! ;-)

Please help us spread the word and make it the success we know it can be by sharing and tagging your friends and team contacts. It's going to be a fun and competitive tournament to help promote junior hockey in the UK and Europe - we hope to see you there!

Inline UK Winter Cup 2019

Inline UK Winter Cup

20th November 2018

The inaugural Inline UK Winter Cup hosted by BRHA is coming in February 2019!!! Make sure you save the date. Full tournament details and poster will be released soon.


Lest We Forget

12th November 2018

The BRHA silence for 2-minutes in observance of Armistice Centenary. Thanks to all the players, managers, coaches, match day officials and spectators in attendance for paying their respects. Lest we forget. 


Remembrance Sunday

8th November 2018

As a sign of respect, the BRHA Executive is arranging a 2-minute silence before the Falcons vs Dynamite game at 10:40am this Sunday.

All teams and spectators will be invited on to the rink to show their respect. The referee will start and end the silence on his whistle.

We ask those not playing in the game following the silence to promptly leave the rink so we avoid unnecessary delay.

Please inform everyone associated with your club as unfortunately there isn’t a PA system and no announcement will be made beforehand.


The new season gets underway!

29th October 2018

Last Sunday, 28th October, saw the first full game day of the 2018/19 season, commencing with ‘quick fire’ 1 x 20-minute pre-split games to decide the A and B divisions for the coming season.

Now that repair work on the roof is well underway (expected to last approximately two weeks), we can hopefully put this behind us and look forward to an exciting season to come (without worrying if we need to bring our swimwear on game day!).

The 18 cancelled games from 14th October have been rescheduled for 25th November and will be played in the same running order as before.

Senior teams can expect to start regular season games on Sunday, 9th December, as we need to wait until the pre-split finishes and the A/B divisions are finalised. 

The newly-formed BRHA League Cup starts on 11th November with the first four games being played in between the juniors’ start to the season. The League Cup is a season-long round robin competition of all senior teams across both divisions with a finals day at the end of the seasom.

A reminder that Banbury Bulldogs (seniors) are eligible to play Regular Season and League Cup games but not pre-split. 7 teams will form Senior A and 6 teams in Senior B.

It’s a busy season ahead with plenty of competitive hockey being played across all age groups, and we hope you’re all looking forward to it as much as we are! 


2018/19 League Structure & Key Information (UPDATED)

10th September 2018

Senior Info

After consultation with team managers, we're pleased to confirm the structure and format of the senior division for 2018/19. The BRHA will once again have a pre-season split to be played over the 3 days in a 'quick fire' format to reduce the time it takes for teams to split in to their appropriate regular season divisions - Senior A and Senior B. The format of the pre-split games will be 1 x 20-minute running clock with these games being played over three dates - Sunday, 14th and 28th October and Sunday, 4th November. Upon completion, teams will split in to two divisions of 7 teams with the regular season facing off on Sunday, 25th November. Banbury Bulldogs u18 and Bordon Warriors u18 accepted our invitation to join Senior B.

We're pleased to welcome a couple of new teams to the BRHA for 2018/19 and, of course, welcome back those familiar faces -- Ash Avalanche, Black Sheep, Bordon Bears, Dunamis Dynamite, Falcons, Jets, Kings, Nuclear Sushi, Scapegoats, Spitfires, Vectis Warriors and Windsor Knights.

A reminder that the senior game format has changed ahead of next season to 3 x 15 minute stop clock.

Junior Info (UPDATED 20/09/18)

The BRHA has faced several quite challenging problems over the past few weeks resulting in the junior's being structures with only one u14 division, due circumstances totally out of the Exec's control. The 4 remaining teams will compete in a mini-league playing one another 3 times each in regular season. 

The BRHA will then host two tournament weekends targeted at specific age groups. Non-BRHA teams from all corners of the country will be invited to compete in an effort to bring awareness (and hopefully future team registrations) for the 2019/20 season.

We will of course continue to promote and ultimately grow the junior divisions over the coming seasons, as this is naturally so crucial for the future success of our league.

The game format for the all junior games is unchanged: 3 x 12 minute running clock.

Fixture Planning

We are in the midst of fixture planning and all team managers will be contacted very shortly so we can get any 'black out' dates (up to 5 per team) for the coming season. We are currently planning for the senior pre-season split and junior divisions, and expect to release these fixtures imminently. We will release the fixtures for the senior's regular season once day 3 of the split is complete, and aim to publish these on our website over the weekend of 11/12th November. Junior teams will start their regular season on 11th November.

League Cup

With the BRHA trialling a season-long 'League Cup' competition in 2018/19, we will contact each manager for information of when and where they train. Fixtures will be drawn out of a hat in the same way as the FA Cup, for example, following a knock-out format and the gold medal game being played on the last weekend of the season. These games will be a differentiator for the BRHA and we hope it will prove a success, and something different for the teams compared to other leagues. All games will need to be played midweek as we only have a finite number of Sunday's booked next season. Full details will be announced in due course.

Referee & Timekeeper Seminar

We're planning to host a seminar as a refresher for existing match day officials and introductory training for new officials that have put themselves forward as a referee or timekeeper. It's great to see organic growth in registrations for match day officials. Full details of the seminar will be announced in the coming weeks once we finalise the last few bits.

Online Registration & Payments

We encourage all players and officials to register sooner rather than later by clicking the 'Register' link on our website - The entire process is now online, including payments so, once you're registered, you will have the option of paying there and then or logging in to your BRHA Sportily account ( and clicking the blue 'Pay Now' button on your dashboard. Now we're a 'cashless' league, all fees will be charged to your BRHA Sportily account so you can pay by debit/credit card. Remember that cash, cheque and BACS are no longer accepted.

Member Perks for 2018/19

To celebrate the new-look BRHA, registered players in all age groups will receive a branded 750ml water bottle and helmet sticker. Not only that, we have also arranged for our professional photographer to take action shots throughout the season. These will be uploaded to our website as normal -

If anyone has any questions, please do not hesitate to get in contact with me either on Facebook or by emailing

Exec Statement re: Junior Rule Changes

9th August 2018

UPDATE (15/08/2018): A junior player may play for another team in an older age group so long as their main registered club doesn't have a team registered in that age group. The parent must complete a Cross Registration Request & Consent Form in order to trigger the process: 


Dear Members,

Following recent queries and concerns raised by several members in regard to below three points, I would like to confirm the league's position for the 2018/19 season and beyond.

1) Junior age group classification
2) Junior cross-registration to Junior teams
3) Junior cross-registration to Senior teams

To address each point in turn…

Junior age group categorisation

As most of you will already be aware, the BRHA is reverting to age groups that fall in-line with the EIHA and other Inline leagues. The age groups are now based on year of birth meaning it is now that year and below (e.g. 18 and below as opposed to under 18's) so if the junior player was born on any date that year then they register in that age group. Each season, the age group brackets simply shift by 1 year.

Under 10's = Born in 2008/09
Under 12's = Born in 2006/07
Under 14's = Born in 2004/05
Under 16's = Born in 2002/03
Under 18's = Born in 2000/01

As a result of this change, BRHA rule 5 clause A/5 will be updated accordingly.

Junior cross-registration to Junior teams

Junior players may play up to any junior age group they please as long as they remain within their primary registered club. E.g. a player is able to register in multiple age groups (e.g. U14, U16, and U18's) but must remain within the same club.

The parent will need to submit a consent form as part of the cross-registration process which will be subsequently approved by all affected team managers and the Registration Secretary. The General Secretary will assist where necessary with the further assistance of the wider Executive Committee should any disputes arise.

The Cross Registration Request & Consent form can be found here:

Junior cross-registration to Senior teams

To be eligible to play up to a senior division, a junior players must be at least 16 years old on or before 1st January of the active season (e.g. 16 years old on or before 01/01/2019 to play in seniors for the 2018/19 season). This is a condition of our insurance policy.

Additionally, BRHA rule 5 clause C/1 stipulates that a junior player may only play up to a senior team within the same club. I can confirm that has been lifted for the 2018/19 season and it is now at the discretion of the affected team managers to agree between themselves. However, it is important to note that a junior player can only play up to one senior team irrespective of division (i.e. must play in either Senior A or Senior B but not both).

The parent will need to submit a Cross Registration Request & Consent form in order to trigger and formalise the request to the League. The Registration Secretary will contact both team managers for their approval and, once the request has been granted, the 'Player (Cross-Registration)' role will be added to the player's Sportily profile and confirmed to all by the Registration Secretary in writing.

This change has been made by the Executive Committee under BRHA rule 7 clause H/4: "the BRHA Executive Committee reserve the right to amend or add rules throughout the season under unforeseen, special circumstances or for safety reasons" as the changes made to the junior structure for the forthcoming season have been deemed significant enough to do so with immediate effect.

All league documentation will be updated in due course to reflect this statement and ratified at the next AGM. In the meantime, please do not hesitate to contact me directly either on Facebook or by emailing

Many thanks,
Dave McGill.

General Secretary, BRHA.

Scape Goats Win Fuengirola!

30th January 2018

On behalf of the League and all associated with it, I would like to congratulate Scape Goats on being crowned champions of the ninth Fuengirola Lions Tournament.

It's great to see a BRHA team flying the flag abroad but even better, bringing home GOLD!

Well done, guys!!!

Scape Goats Win Fuengirola!

Online Payments Now Accepted!

23rd January 2018

BRHA now accept online payments for registration fees and match fees at no extra cost to you! It is important to me that we improve the overall member experience when dealing with the BRHA, and this is another step forward in helping us achieve that goal.

Enabling online payments means that we have significantly streamlined the registration process as the system will now reconcile the payment amount with the total amount owed on your BRHA account. The same applies for match fees, disciplinary fines etc. Naturally, this eradicates the need for manual intervention during such administrative processes thus allowing us to focus on more value-add activities.

To pay fees, simply login to and the dashboard will display any outstanding fees and a 'Pay Now' button (see screenshot attached). If you haven't yet registered for an online account, you can do so here:

Payment processing is extremely secure and handled by Stripe, one of the world's leading payment gateways. More information can be found here:

Note that 'legacy' payment methods (BACS, Cash and Cheque) are still available for the foreseeable future but we encourage members to pay online.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Many thanks

General Secretary
BRHA (Inline UK South)

New Website Goes Live!

5th December 2017

On behalf of myself and the rest of Exec, we're pleased to announce the launch of our brand new website –

Those familiar with our new platform, Sportily, from other leagues will need no introduction to the benefits it brings to all. If you haven’t come across it before then it’s an excellent platform that will help us improve the overall efficiency and effectiveness of the league while delivering a bunch of long overdue changes on all levels. These changes not only meet our needs today, but future proof us for years to come.

The team at Sportily has worked closely with us throughout the entire process to help build a platform that provides our members, and website visitors, with an exceptional user experience. The bulk of the work completed in phase 1 was mostly ‘under the hood’, and soon, phase 2 will be in full swing! Our focus for the next part is to update the front-end interface and roll-out several additional features to our members.

To highlight but a few of the features available to you right now:

>>> ‘Live Game Centre’ — If you can’t make the game, now you can track it in real-time using our new in-game timeline, displayed at the top of our home page!

>>> Statistics are back! — Navigate through the website to analyse competitive stats like how you rank in points within your team or even the entire division!

>>> In-Game Timeline — You never need ask for a copy of the score sheet again! The old-style paper-based score sheets have now been replaced by the timeline. A clean and simple timeline of events available to you during game play, or you can check out any past fixture!

>>> Your Profile — Take full control of your profile and the information you provide the league. Handy for when you move house and need to update your details, want to track outstanding fees, or even view the status of a pending disciplinary investigation!

>>> Registrations — All types of league registrations are now completed online. For the time being, payments should be made using existing methods (BACS, Cash, Cheque etc.) until such time as we enable online payments!

** ACTION REQUIRED ** — To take full advantage of our new system, you need to complete the registration form by clicking the following link. We have already uploaded basic information for each of our ‘members’ but, after registering, your profile will be updated with your chosen login credentials and contact details!

If you have any questions please let me know by messaging me on Facebook or by emailing

Referees needed!

29th November 2017

We need referees so if you're interested, please contact me directly on Facebook or by emailing Depending on the demand, we will look in to organising a referee's course for newly joined officials and those who'd like a refresher.

Many thanks

General Secretary
BRHA (Inline UK South)


Additional Fixtures!

29th November 2017

Fixtures for all age groups up to and including 21st January have been posted on the BRHA Managers group on Facebook and we're still waiting for several teams to approve these, hence why they've not been released. We can’t go any further until the first round of senior games have been played and we know the teams that will form the subsequent Senior A and B divisions. The remaining available dates for the rink leave us with limited options so we ask that teams accommodate the proposed fixtures wherever possible. Any problems, please let Paul Collins know or email and your query will be forwarded on.

Fixtures Secretary
