Level 1 Coaching Course

Hey all,

Just a reminder to ask your coaches to consider this course, which is an important part of our strategic plan to raise the profile of hockey in our region. As of this morning, only 4 (four) participants had signed up. This is massively disappointing, and does not tally with the verbal feedback I have been receiving.
This is not enough people to justify running the course. Obviously the last thing we want to do is cancel the course, but unless the numbers pick up over the next week, say, that’s probably going to be the move we have to make.
I would also like to re-iterate the call that was made by the clubs last year that all our coaches need to be qualified at the appropriate level going forward. We are doing all that we can to facilitate this by hosting this course locally rather than asking our coaches to travel to Melbourne.
Hopefully we can boost those numbers in the next few days!
Many thanks,


Douglas Agar

2018 Marshals

To all clubs,

Just a reminder to have your marshals organised for the first round.  A big thanks to “Mr Sparkie” who has continued to sponsor the vests for us.

The Marshalls will be in use for the 2018 season from round 1.  Please remember to organise a person for each game that your club is participating in.

The vests will be with:

  • Albury – at the canteen
  • Wodonga – at the canteen (or hanging in the umpires dugout)
  • Corowa – with United
  • Wangaratta – with Wangaratta
  • Beechworth – with Beechworth

Please ensure that when the game is finished that they immediately go back to where they came from for the next team to use.

Remember that the Marshals must:

  • be 18 years of age or older;
  • wear the vest as this readily identifies them as your Marshall;
  • walk around the field used throughout the match and ensure they are clearly visible to Spectators, and are in an appropriate spot for monitoring off-field incidents and behaviour;
  • the Marshall must, if it is safe to do so, remind spectators  of their obligation to comply with the HAW Code of Behaviour and issue any reasonable direction
  • If any spectator fails to comply with the Marshalls reasonable directions, the Marshal should contact their Club for further assistance. If required the Club official representative is to contact the police or relevant emergency services for support;
  • not engage in any verbal or physical altercations;
  • not consume alcohol or smoke while acting as a Marshall;
  • not, unless it is safe to do so, approach opposition Spectators  behaving inappropriately and must instead approach the opposition Marshall to resolve any issues.

Further details are in the policy on the HAW web

If there are issues then the appropriate form on the web is to be filled in and sent to admin@haw.net.au (or put in the results box)

The form to report any issues (which ideally will not be needed) can be located at http://www.haw.net.au/Information/Rules-Policies

Training for 2018 start of year

To all clubs training on the Albury and Wodonga fields

Training for many clubs is starting in the next week or two.  Please be aware that all training on the HAW synthetic fields should be conducted with the goals on the sides on the field to help preserve the field condition.  If you are going on to train and they are at the ends, please move them to the sides.

When the season starts

  • Norths (AHC1) and Magpies (AHC2) will be responsible for moving the goals to the side of the field

Until the Wodonga field is ready

  • Wodonga (AHC1) and Beechworth (AHC2) will be responsible for moving them back

Once the Wodonga field is able to be used

  • Spitfires/Strikers (AHC1) and Falcons (AHC2) will be responsible for moving them back
  • Beechworth will be responsible for moving the goals before training on Tuesday night and Wodonga for moving them back after their training finishes.

Thanks for your assistance with this.
