On the 1st October Containers For Change will officially start in WA, allowing us to recieve a 10c refund on all intact, eligible containers.
KalaHockey has signed up to become a Virtual Donation Point. That means that when you take your eligible containers to a drop off point you can supply our Scheme ID and the refund will go to our wonderful club!
Thanks to Scouts WA we will also have a mini-skip at the club for members to drop off their eligible containters during Spring Hockey @ Hartfield.
Containers for Change targets drink containers most commonly seen as litter. Most aluminium, glass, plastic, steel and liquid paperboard beverage containers between 150ml and 3L are eligible for a refund.
All containers smaller than 150ml and bigger than 3L are not eligible for a refund. Other ineligible containers include:
plain milk containers,
glass containers which have contained wine or pure spirits,
large containers (1L or more) which have contained flavoured milk, pure juice, cask wine or cask water,
Please note: Due to ground scheduling conflicts Spring Hockey @ Hartfield 2020 will have a bye on the 6th November. The end date will now be Friday the 11th December.
You can still register! Come down to a Spring Hockey session and complete registration then.
New this season, Senior Skills Sessions. From 5:15pm to 6pm any Senior Players can be taken through some skills exercises to help them improve their game and then have a scratch match at 6pm. Senior Skills Sessions are suitable for all players, from those new to the game to more experienced players.
Thank you to everyone that attended our Intro To Umpiring clinic on Monday night.
The session was presented by Reece Young, an umpire with many years experience.
Reece took participants through the basics of umpiring, including how to
position yourself to best see the play, how to manage the game and players, and how to address player behaviour.
The night also saw the launch of our Junior Umpire Academy. An expression of interest was sort from players to become an umpire and also for those experienced umpires to become mentors. If you are interested in becoming an umpire or a mentor please complete the relevant form below:
Thank you to everyone who came to our KalaMinkey “Have A Go Day”! It was so much fun and we really enjoyed seeing you all! Great weather, party music, face painting, and sausage sizzle were enjoyed by all.
We were also visited on the day by the Australian Goalkeeper, Tyler Lovell. You may have caught his interview with our MC Darren!
KalaHockey would like to thank all the volunteers who made the morning possible, and the City of Kalamunda, who provided funding for our free activities.
