IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING COVID-19 (CORONA VIRUS)
Dear SRHC Members,
After advice from Hockey Australia, Hockey WA has today advised clubs of the decision to postpone all hockey competitions, events, training and activities until the 31st May 2020. Please see the link below for the full Hockey WA statement.
In response to the above, the Southern River Hockey Club has made the difficult decision to suspend all club training and events until 21st April 2020. Unfortunately, this includes our planned Open Day this Saturday 21st March 2020. This situation will be reviewed again in the coming weeks as we receive more information from Hockey Australia and Hockey WA and further updates will be communicated to all members as soon as practical.
The delay to the start of the 2020 season is disappointing for our all our Hawks, but the health and well-being of our players, their family’s and our volunteers is our top priority.
With regards to your membership fees for the season, we ask that all members temporarily suspend paying until we have further updates. Thank you to those players who have already paid fees in advance. Once the competition commences, any adjustments to fees due to a shortened playing season will be communicated to members.
Players that have ordered and paid for uniforms and merchandise will still receive these items in due course as it is currently being manufactured by the suppliers.
If you have any queries regarding the above, please do not hesitate to get in contact via email firstname.lastname@example.org

The current situation with the coronavirus throughout the world presents challenges to everyone. It is important that as a club, we provide the latest information based on facts and share that information to encourage people to stay informed and take action on advice from reputable sources who are at the forefront of this virus in Australia.
At the present time there is no evidence of transmission in the community so you should continue to go about your day-to-day business. You do not need to take actions like limiting your movement in the community or staying at home. Community hockey
SRHC recommends all members (players, team staff, spectators) of our hockey club adhere to the below set of actions for upcoming training sessions and matches:
* Replace handshaking at the start and conclusion of games with (for example) simply tapping sticks on the ground, fist pump or a thumbs up. * Do not share whistles * Use labelled water bottles. These must be strictly single person use. Avoid use of communal water bottles. * Take care with food handling at games; for example, oranges or lollies at half-time or full-time. Use tongs to serve or reconsider shared food. * Mouth-guards should be washed after each game, followed by cleaning of hands. * Continue to cover nose and mouth with tissue or flexed elbow when coughing or sneezing. * Keep 1.5m distance from anyone that is coughing or sneezing. * All players and officials should wash their hands with soap and water and dry with paper towel prior to and after games. * Gloves should be worn when attending to players with injuries – especially against blood exposure but also to prevent contact with mouth-guards.
Any member with flu-like symptoms should self-exclude from playing, training and spectating at the first sign of the symptoms and seek medical advice.
