Return to Training – 25 May 2020

It is with great pleasure that the committee advises our members that we have approval to return to training at both our grass and turf facilities from Monday 25th May 2020.

In addition to the Hockey WA Return to Framework (HWA Return to Training Framework) please find attached the following approved SRHC COVID-19 documents for your information:

You will receive confirmation of your training details from your Coach and/or Team Manager. This will happen through your team WhatsApp group. If you are a registered senior member or a parent/caregiver of a junior member and you are not already a member of a team WhatsApp group then please make contact with one of the following committee members to ensure that you are placed in a group for training/communication purposes:

When attending a training session you will be asked to register your full name and a mobile contact number with the Coach or Team Manager. This will need to be done every time you attend training. Registration at any training session after Monday 25th May 2020 will be taken as your acknowledgement and acceptance of all the above documents and that participation in training is at your own risk.

Remember that you can still do the following to support our efforts to assist with reducing the spread of COVID-19 at SRHC and the wider community:

Hockey WA is currently working on their revised program for the start of the 2020 competition and clubs are providing feedback on this over this weekend. At this stage it is likely that fixtures will commence either the last week of June or fist week of July and extend into early October.

We know that most of our members are ‘keen as mustard’ to be returning to the field for training and that the start of the season can’t come soon enough! However, we also understand if you have had a change of heart due to the significant delays and impact caused by COVID-19.  If you have registered for the 2020 season but are no longer intending on playing then we ask you to make immediate contact at registrar@southerriverhockey.asn.au so we can remove you from our list. This is vitally important so that we can provide revised team nominations, if necessary, to Hockey WA in the coming weeks.

The above training plan will remain in force until further notice and further updates will be provided as new information is released by Hockey WA and the State Government.

If you have any further queries in relation to the above please do not hesitate to contact us at info@southernriverhockey.asn.au.

President’s Report

Welcome to the 2020 Hockey season, I hope you are all fit and well, itching to get back onto the field.

This is my first year as the President of our fantastic club and I wanted to report something other than Covid-19.

For those of you that don’t know me, I am Jamie D’Souza and I have been involved with the club since 2007, coaching, managing, playing masters and supporting the Hawks!

The 2020 season was looking great with high numbers registering to play before we were rudely interrupted by the Corona Virus. We nominated 11 Senior teams, 10 Junior teams, Grads (yr 3/4 juniors), Hawk into Hockey and even had discussions for a Women’s Mid-Week Veterans side.

Hockey WA has been meeting with the all clubs trying to work through the issues that this pandemic has caused. The main problem people are facing is financial stress, with some players unable to afford to play this season. So if you can’t afford to play, please email the registrar at – registrar@southernriverhockey.asn.au and if you need any assistance contact me at president@southernriverhockey.asn.au or on 0408180074.

Our modified training sessions will commence soon, with restrictions now lifted, to allow 10 people at gatherings. We are just waiting for approval from the City of Gosnells to open and use our Facilities. The committee and coaches are developing a training programme that works and adheres to Social Distancing Regulations, so please be patient we know it’s going to be different.

Last weekend was going to be Round 4 of the Senior season and Round 1 of the Junior season so obviously the 2020 season will be shorter than usual.
At this point Hockey WA is wanting to start the season as early as possible, which will more than likely be a half season with or without finals.
Discussions are still ongoing and the final decisions will be made once a start date is confirmed. As the season will be reduced your fees will be reduced accordingly.

The Club is also looking for a Bar and Kitchen Manager for the 2020 season, so if you or someone you know wants to do this job please get in contact with me on president@southernriverhockey.asn.au – 0408180074

I am also interested in your ideas for anything that you would like to see or do at the club – and we would also like your help to get it off the ground.

Well I think that is enough from me,

See you on the turf

Jamie D’Souza
