Save the date and protect those pearly whites! We have booked Galadent Dental for mouthguard fittings at the club on Tuesday 16th June between 4:30pm and 6:30pm.
While every effort will be made to ensure prompt delivery of mouth guards, please note that due to the limited time between the fitting and our season commencing any ordered mouth guards may not be here for round 1.
To book an appointment, go to www.galadent.com.au and click on Mouthguard Booking. Look for Kalamunda Hockey Club, select a time and follow the prompts to complete the booking form. One appointment is for one player only. If you have multiple players needing mouthguards please book them individual appointments.
While you are on the website please download the Mouthguard Form by clicking on ‘Mouthguard Form’ and then ‘Download Form’ Make sure you save it on your computer before you complete it as some browsers will not save your typed information unless it has been saved locally first. This will let you select the type of mouthguard along with any customisations you would like. Please complete a form for each booking.
Once completed, please print both pages of the form and bring it to your appointment. Hardcopies will be available on the night. Doing this before hand will help keep the queues moving and prevent long lines. With COVID-19 restrictions it will also help us from gathering too many people in one place at a time.
Once we are confirmed you will be able to book your mouthguard fitting through their website. An appointment will be for one person only. Multiple appointments must be made for multiple fittings.
Payment is required on the night by either filling in your credit card details on the Mouthguard Form or by paying in cash or by cheque (Please make cheques payable to Galadent Dental).
The announcement stated that indoor and outdoor non-work gatherings of up to 10 people are now allowed at:
Weddings and funerals
Outdoor personal training (no shared equipment)
Home opens and display village inspections
This is a great result and a testament to the efforts of all of Western Australians. It may be a small reduction in restrictions, but it shows that we’re heading in the right direction.
Social distancing is still in effect and advice from the WA State Government is to:
Minimise all unnecessary contact with others
Keep 1.5 metres away from others
Avoid physical greetings such as handshakes, hugs and kisses
Use tap and pay instead of cash
What this means for KalaHockey
With outdoor personal training now available for up to 10 people, players can now do fitness training in larger groups.
Unfortunately with the restriction on shared equipment, this means that there can be no use of communal equipment, such as balls.
KalaHockey is not running training sessions just yet, but with outdoor personal training now available for up to 10 people, players can do their own fitness training in larger groups, observing the guidelines set out by the State Government. A maximum of 10 people, including bystanders such as those aiding the sessions, supporters or parents, can attend at one time, being aware that no sharing of equipment is allowed (including balls).
The fields are available for group fitness training, however the club rooms (including the change rooms) will remain closed as we are unable to ensure the proper sanitation standards are maintained. Field lights also remain deactivated as per instructions from the City of Kalamunda.
