Men’s Masters Match

To Clubs,

There will be a Mens Masters match at AHC on Wednesday October 7th at 7:00pm for any men 45 or over.

Can you please send this on to any of your club who might be interested.

If you have been sent this by your club and you would like to play, please notify the office by email letting us know by Friday 2 October.

Depending upon numbers, we expect the game to be four 15 minute quarters with interested players split into even teams, which will be announced by email before the game.

The cost is expected to be $10 per player, which will include some refreshments, including mid-strength beer and soft drinks at the conclusion of the match.

Covid-19 restrictions will apply with sign/tap in and the usual social distancing rules, with entry/exit gates into and out of the ground surface.

Regarding registration and insurance, if you have not registered with HV during the year and you are not playing in the current H8 competition, then there is an additional $40 cost to cover registration. We understand that this may adversely affect your decision to play. If you are uncertain if you have a HV registration, reply asking and I will let you know.

Kind Regards

Cayte Campbell (on behalf of Ross Maggs)
Sports Operations Manager

To all clubs,

With the update to the rules by both the Victorian Government, our rules have been updated to be in line with this.  .  They are relevant until 1 July.  A new plan will be issued for 1 July.

Where there are changes to the plans, the text is in blue for ease of finding.

I have attached both the updated CoVid Safe Plan and updated Club Training Plan.

Please make sure you read, understand and abide by the requirements and obligations of entering the HAW facilities.

A copy of the plans have been put on the HAW web site for easy reference.

Step 2 will continue until 1 July for NSW, until 22 June for those 18years old and younger in Victoria and for those over 18 in Victoria, until 13 July when contact training resumes for them.

All other restrictions listed in this document are in force until 1 July unless either state changes their rules.  If this happens then a new plan will be issued.

• Season will start for juniors on Friday 17 July

• Home and away season will conclude on 3 October

• Finals format is yet to be decided

• At this stage all games will be in NSW

Hockey Victoria update re: Corona Virus

From HV:

HV COVID-19 STATEMENT, Thursday 19 March 2020
The purpose of this communication is to provide an update from the position statement that we released on Tuesday. In the past 24 hours we have directly engaged with Sport & Recreation Victoria, Sport Australia and Hockey Australia to seek the latest information.
Effective immediately Hockey Victoria will suspend all HV hockey activities and postpone the start of the Winter competition until 1 May 2020.
We have not taken this decision lightly given that the current advice from State and Federal Governments remains that community level sporting activities should continue. Working closely with Affiliates however, we recognise that some of them are losing access to their facilities and temporarily suspending their own hockey activities. Our decision today therefore reflects these developments, as well as the prevailing concern to ensure the health and safety of our players, officials and the wider community.
It is important to note that the season is not cancelled. Going forward we will continue to:
• Monitor the situation closely
• Keep you updated
• Work collaboratively with our Affiliates
• Develop a range of competition scenarios for the 2020 season. Our intent at this stage is to
deliver all competitions in their entirety, while working with the affiliates to embed as much flexibility as possible.
On Friday 20 March, HV will provide further updates on the HV events (JCC, JSC and SCC).
We appreciate all the support received from so many members of our community over the past 24- 48 hours and look forward to working with you and collectively providing hockey to the community after 1 May 2020.
We look forward to your ongoing support of Hockey Victoria, as without it we will not be able to effectively deliver hockey in 2020.
