Dear hockey players, dear parents,

A new Covid law was passed by the Luxembourgish government. The law will entered into force today (19/10) and remains in place until 18 December. 

Children under 12 years and 2 months do not longer require a certificate to be able to take part in competitions.

HOW DOES IT IMPACT OUR OTHER MEMBERS AND VISITORS?

The CovidCheck system will be applicable as of 19 October, ie self-administered rapid tests will be dropped, in favour of PCR or certified rapid tests.

In practice it means we only can continue to take part in competitions provided our players/visitors present:
-       a vaccination certificate
-       a negative COVID-19 test certificate by means of

  • a negative PCR test result not older than 72 hours
  • a negative antigen test result not older than 48 hours carried out by a medical analysis laboratory or any other entity authorised for this purpose
  • a negative result not older than 48 hours, transmitted electronically by the Ministry of Education, of a test that has been performed at school is also accepted a recovery certificate

- a recovery certificate

These are and remain uncharted waters for all of us and we will do our best to run our trainings and matches as smoothly as possible. 

We therefore would kindly ask you to:
-       Arrive on time for your training session/matches, ideally with your vaccination certificate or negative test result/recovery certificate at hand. Do not enter the playing area before your allotted time.
-       Try to reduce physical contact with other players (such as shaking hands, sharing bottles or high fives).
-       Use the antiseptic gels that are available at the entrance of the pitch.

Let's stay safe and have fun... together we can do this! 

Do you have friends that are thinking to play hockey or are looking for a new and exciting sport?  Wouldn’t it be great to show your friends how much fun you’re having at LHC?

Bring them for free to your upcoming training sessions on October 26, 27 or 28. It’s a great opportunity for them to learn about LHC. During that session, they will get a taste of LHC, meet coaches and have lots of fun! Hockey sticks will be provided by the club.  Bringing a water bottle is highly recommended.

Don’t miss the opportunity!  Everyone can bring up to 2 friends!

We are super excited as it is getting real now... more than 120 hockey lovers, LHC members and non-members, registered for the upcoming Super Sunday (10/10/2021)! Ladies and Men are giving the best of themselves to ensure that our first social event in almost two years will be unforgettable. Are you coming to cheer them up during their matches?

Looking forward to see you on Sunday!

SCHEDULE UPDATE:

12:00 - 13:15 : Ladies match -> RESCHEDULED TO 13:00

13:15 - 14:45 : BBQ

15:00 - 16:15 : Men's match

Dear hockey players, dear parents, 


Since 14 September 2021 the Luxembourg government announced that Covid-19 measures were extended until 18 October 2021 at least.  


In practice it means we can train and play games under normal circumstances, provided that players/visitors present a negative COVID-19 test, either by means of an on-site self-test or by means of a certified negative result (ie a negative PCR test result not older than 72 hours or a negative antigen test result not older than 48 hours carried out by a medical analysis laboratory or any other entity authorised for this purpose).  Note that a negative result not older than 48 hours, transmitted electronically by the Ministry of Education, of a test that has been performed at school is also accepted.

These are uncharted waters for all of us and we will do our best to run our trainings and matches as smoothly as possible.  We therefore would kindly ask you to:
-       Arrive on time for your training session/matches, ideally with your vaccination certificate or negative test result at hand. Do not enter the playing area before your allotted time. 
-       Try to reduce physical contact with other players (such as shaking hands, sharing bottles or high fives).
-       Use the antiseptic gels that are available at the entrance of the pitch.
 
Let's stay safe and have fun... together we can do this!

Luxembourg Hockey Club appoints a new technical director

 

By recruiting Maxime Halflants, the Luxembourg Hockey Federation and the capital’s club are demonstrating their ambition, on both a sporting and educational level.

 

It’s the 6th of September 2020, at the dawn of the new season, and the blues and whites are showing faultless determination under the watchful eyes of their new coach. In sport, as with most other meaningful human endeavour, it is total commitment which drives results that even if not translated into the score line, develop the individual and group spirit. Joining the defensive line for the last 5 minutes of the match, in order to consolidate a good draw (1-1 against Taxandria), M. Halflants demonstrates that, also with a stick in his hand, he has lost none of his touch…

 

 

“Sport has always been an integral part of my life,” says the new sports director and coach. “From the age of 5, I started playing hockey with a lot of enthusiasm. Competitiveness and passion are the driving forces that led me to emerge into the honour division with Racing (Brussels) and to achieve national selection in the under 21 age group. That was a great experience that enabled me to develop alongside the golden generation of the Red Lions, who later shone at the Rio Olympics".

 

 

You may be thinking that M. Halflants could harbour some legitimate regrets for not having continued with the Belgian national hockey team, but other sporting successes have punctuated his unusual career. Selected by the Belgian tennis federation, he has spent the last 6 years in the highly respected Serie A club (Belgian top 30) and what’s more, only 4 years after taking up the sport, he plays golf off a handicap of only -2! The icing on the cake, these achievements - which many sportsmen specializing in only one of the three disciplines would be delighted with - were obtained whilst simultaneously carrying out law studies and an internship at the Brussels Bar ...

 

 

"Maxime's profile is most bespoke", confirms the President of the Luxembourg Hockey Federation, Francis Parisis. “So, we have taken the opportunity to tailor-make his outfit (laughs). For more than three years, we have been working to develop synergies between the Federation, the Olympic Committee and the Luxembourg hockey club, with a clear focus on youth development. Our ambition must, however, conform to strict and sound budgetary management and that means we need to be very selective in the positions we fill. This is the reason why a profile of a lawyer with a deep knowledge of elite sport seemed really interesting to us, in order to work in tandem - for the facilities and youth development programme - with Ignacio Gomez. Beyond the very encouraging first results, we share a management vision that places the individual at the centre of the system”.

 

 

"It is obvious that finding each person’s place within the structure of a team requires an individual approach", replies M. Halflants. “As such, I am particularly attentive, wearing my coaches hat, to the human and athletic development of our players. Sooner or later the newly acquired skills of an individual spill over into the group. In my new professional environment, I rely a lot on the experience acquired with my previous professional exposure. By following Arthur De Greef (110th player in the world) for a few months on the ATP circuit, during 2019, I felt with particular acuity how much the mental aspect transcends technical and physical parameters. It may seem obvious but, in our results-oriented and competitive society, we often forget that emotions govern our destinies. Also, the understanding that we have of ourselves, our capabilities and limitations, are strongly anchored but not unchangeable ".

 

 

It would be very premature to make any predictions already, however the home crowd who savoured the victory in the third league game were not mistaken: the mood was, like the weather, radiant. No doubt the 4-0 defeat inflicted on Jaguars was a big contributor to the party atmosphere that reverberated around the club during the post-match barbecue. Obviously M. Halflants feels good in his conductor’s costumery. Long may it hold together and develop into a game-changing asset for the Luxembourg Hockey Federation and the bourgeoning club of our capital.

Ladies 1 :  Ombrage vs HC Luxembourg 

The Luxembourgish team faced their Brussels-based rivals on the latter's home turf on Sunday.
 
With their minds on keeping their first place in the ranking, the Luxembourgish team were eager to keep up their performance at the start of the season.
 
The team found a better rhythm this week than in their last game, and were on target from the first minute of the game. Five minutes in, Jimena Perez scored the first goal of the match. The blue and white Luxembourg team controlled the first half of the game with ease, with the scoreboard reading 0-4 at half time.
 
Heather Yanusas, Maude De Cooman and Fenne Brekelmans all performed admirably throughout the game. The second half of the match was essentially a formality for the visiting team, with Hannah Eishen scoring their fifth goal. This was followed by a further two goals scored by Aoife Sheehan.
 
The team now proudly sits at the top of their division and seem untouchable from the beginning of the championship.
 
Congratulations to them, and let's hope it lasts!
 
Maxime
