Coronavirus Update 17th March

Earlier today HockeyWA released an updated response to the ongoing Coronavirus COVID-19 situation.

In this update HockeyWA have announced that the start to all competitions and all hockey related events have been postponed until after the 31st May. In further communications to the Committee, HockeyWA has recommended that all clubs do the same.

With that in mind the Executive and the Committee have had many discussions over the last few days about what that looks like for Kalahockey.

It is with sadness that we announce we have cancelled the remainder of our Summer Hockey series as well as the planned Carnival scheduled for Saturday the 21st March. We are also cancelling the Galadent Mouth Guard Clinic scheduled for Thursday the 2nd April.

It is also with sadness that we have chosen to cancel all training until the week commencing 6th April. We will also be closing access to the club rooms until then as well. The Committee is constantly assessing the situation and will advise of any changes to this current plan.

This is not something we have done lightly. As players, coaches and officials we too want to be training, playing and interacting with our Kalafamily.

These are extraordinary times and we want to make sure that the health and safety of our members and the wider public is looked after. We feel the best way we can do that is to limit our exposure and thus limit the spread of this virus.

Our strategy for dealing with the Coronavirus COVID-19 will not end there.The Committee is monitoring the situation and working hard on a plan to help us through the next few months as we come to realise its full impact.

We also know that you’ll have lots of questions. Some of those questions we don’t yet have an answer for, but we will endeavor to find one. We ask at this time that you please channel your questions to the Committee through your player representatives.

Thank you for your continued love and patience as we work our way through this difficult event, unprecedented in a lot of our lifetimes. We very much appreciate your support.
