Scottish Ice Hockey is pleased to announce that it has set up a fund to support its clubs during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Applications to the new grant scheme can be made by any SIH member club or a combination of member clubs.

The purpose of the fund, which has been capped at £10,000, is to help with engagement in our sport during the current climate and is designed keep players involved in ice hockey.

Clubs are required to demonstrate a developmental side to their application and show that the grant will benefit players from an activity that wouldn’t normally have happened.
