The last week has seen some more announcements regarding Coronavirus COVID-19. The Kalahockey Committee would like to let you know we are currently monitoring releases from Hockey WA, Hockey Australia and various State and Federal government agencies to make sure we are responding in the best way we can to the changing landscape.
As of Thursday 12th March we are following Hockey WA and Hockey Australia advice to continue with planned activities (including the Carnival on the 21st March) with increased hygiene and asking members to self-exclude if they are experiencing flu-like symptoms, even if you don’t think it is COVID-19. We also ask anyone who has been overseas recently or spent time with someone who was overseas recently to self-exclude, whether you have symptoms or not.
We are also adopting the following recommendations from HockeyWA and Hockey Australia:
Replacing handshakes at the start and conclusion of games with other non-contact versions, such as tapping sticks, a fist pump or a thumbs up.
Only using your water bottle and avoiding sharing with others or using communal water bottles.
Take care with shared food handling. If your team has oranges or lollies to share, please use tongs to distribute them
Continue to cover your nose and mouth with a tissue or flexed elbow when coughing or sneezing
Keep 1.5m from anyone coughing or sneezing
It is very important for players and spectators to follow these recommendations so we can limit the spread of COVID-19 and protect those most at risk, such as the elderly.
Kalahockey is monitoring the situation daily and will update our members if there are further developments
We thank you for your help in keeping everyone at Kalahockey healthy, happy and ready for an awesome season.

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.

The committee had the great pleasure on Tuesday of welcoming Christine and Tracey from the ANZ Bank to the clubrooms where they presented us with a cheque as part of their Home Loan Introducer Program. It’s pretty simple. ANZ Bank reward businesses and community organisations for referring members and even non-members with home loan needs to them. One of our Kalamunda families did exactly that and we were the benefactors of a cheque in excess of $4,000.00! Thanks to Christine, Tracey and the ANZ Bank Kalamunda, and also to the wonderful family that made use of this program.
