Injury Reporting

Our governing body, England Hockey, requires member clubs to report injuries sustained across the sport so that data can be gathered and trends identified, to enable reporting to both England Hockey’s Board and the International Hockey Federation (FIH). It is imperative that England Hockey collects this data in order to influence rules changes and improve the safety of the sport.

England Hockey requires all clubs to complete the England Hockey online ‘Injury Monitoring Form’ following injuries sustained that require one or more of the following:

  • Treatment from a first aid specialist (e.g. Team doctor/ first responder)
  • Hospital treatment
  • Subsequent visit(s) to a GP

The reporting of injuries sustained on the field of play is a requirement for all clubs/ organisations affiliated to England Hockey as part of England Hockey's Injury Reporting Policy. The link to the reporting form on the England Hockey website is here and will need to be completed by captains or coaches after each incident which meets the criteria listed.
