Ice Hockey

It was officially recognised as a Winter Olympics sport in 1998. The predominant difference between Women's Ice Hockey and Men's is that body blocking is not allowed. This is due to the fact that many North American players have a size advantage over players from other countries, giving them an unfair advantage. Women are also required to wear protective full face masks. In the UK, the Main Leagues are:

  • Premier League
  • Division One (North)
  • Division One (South)
  • U16 Northern Division
  • U16 Southern Division

Common Injuries whilst playing Ice Hockey

Ice Hockey can be a dangerous sport to play and comes with high risks, as, in mens Hockey at least, it is a full contact sport.

Its vital that you get covered with Travel Insurance before you take part in the sport. If you should get injured whilst playing, it can leave you on a plane home and out of action in recovery for months, with physiotherapy to complete following your hospital stay. Injuries are common in the sport, with the added risk of contact with other players blades and sticks in addition to contact with the actual players. Some of the ones most frequently sustained include:

  • Lacerations
  • Abrasions
  • Contusions
  • Torn ligaments
  • Broken bones
  • Sprained muscles
  • Concussions

80% of all Hockey injuries occur as a result of direct contact. The head is the body part most commonly injured in the game, with lacerations to the head, scalp and face the most common. 50% of concussions are a result of checking from behind, leading many leagues to make this a gross misconduct penalty offence. If a player is not knocked unconscious, concussions can often go unreported, making them all the more dangerous.

Important Information

You must ensure that you are adequately supervised, that appropriate safety equipment (such as protective headwear, etc.) are worn at all times and you do not participate in Ice Hockey for more than 90 days in any one Period of Insurance.
