Guidance for Visiting Players and Officials

As a visitor to Fylde Hockey Club we want you to feel welcome especially in the challenging times we find ourselves in at the start of this season. The aim of this section is to provide you with all the information you need to arrive at Mill Farm confident in the measures we have in place for playing covid-safe hockey.

 

Prior to Play
  • All visitors to our venue, the Fylde Sports and Education Centre (FSEC), are required to register before arriving at the centre.  Please ensure all players and officials have registered using this link

  • Our address is Mill Farm, Fylde Sports & Education Centre, PR4 3JZ

  • At the time of writing these guidance notes we are requesting that all players and officials arrive in playing kit as currently changing room facilities are not available

  • There is parking available next to the pitch

 

At the pitch
  • On arrival please enter through the main FSEC reception. You are required to wear a mask when you are inside the building. If for any reason this entrance is closed the  gate to the left of the entrance will be open.  This opens directly onto the pitch

  • Toilet facilities will be available - these are accessed through the doors close to the entrance to the pitch

  • There will be hand sanitiser stations located near to the pitch entrance and at the side of each dugout

  • At the time of writing there are currently no refreshments provided on site, however there is a Starbucks, Greggs, Aldi and Burger King on the road leading up to Mill Farm. Bradleys, the pub next to AFC Fylde, is also fully open

  • Please note following the recent government guidance, FSEC does not allow spectators into the facility
