Update 27 Oct - Hockey On the Way Back

October 27, 2020 at 11:00 AM

Hockey is coming back to Doncaster

Slowly but surely, Victoria is coming out of the second COVID wave lockdown.  While some restrictions are being lifted, there are still plenty of COVID ‘rules’ that need to be followed and we are busy planning for some forms of hockey to resume as we approach Christmas.

Our first step will be the Junior Summer Program which is detailed below.  Senior’s Summer Hockey is also on its way as we finalise the details and we will be in touch to confirm the Senior Program shortly, stay tuned.

Junior Summer Program

The response we have had from our survey has been incredibly positive, with over 100 juniors responding that they are keen to join in our summer programs. Thank you also to the many parents who have offered their help.  We will be putting together a roster for Gatekeeping, cleaning, and coaching.

We have the following programs available to all juniors.

Skills development:

AIM: Create an environment to help all the juniors to practice and improve on their skills.

Dates:

  • Starting date 2nd November   *Provided we have approval from Council.
  • End date: 15th December

Registration and payment via Team App, $10 per session. Complete the registration at least 1 day prior to the session so Maria knows how many coaches she will require. Session numbers will be capped according to government requirements.

Hockey 6’s:

AIM: Play small games based on 6v6. We will try to keep the teams the same every week if we have consistent players throughout the program.

We ask all participants to bring a white t-shirt and a dark t-shirt to every session.

Dates:

  • Starting date 4th November   * Provided we have approval from Council.
  • Ending date: 17th December

Registration and payment via Team App, $10 per session. Complete the registration at least 1 day prior to the session so Maria knows how many coaches she will require and so she can put teams together. Session numbers will be capped according to government requirements.

As before, we will be required to adhere to both Government and our local Council guidelines. We ask again that parents are prompt with arrival and pickup times and children enter via the top gate and exit via the bottom gate. Children in high school will be required to wear a mask when they are not on the pitch.

HV Registration: anyone who was registered at the start of the year is covered until 31/12/2020.  If you were not registered you will need to pay a compulsory, one off HV $12 fee to cover you until the end of the year. The link for this can be found on Team App.

We can’t wait to see you all back at Donny!!!
