Kalahockey Update 30th April 2020

On Monday 27th April, the Western Australian State Government made an announcement regarding restrictions around COVID-19.

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.

If players have any questions, please direct them to your coach, and please remember when gathering to stick to the guidelines set out by the WA State Government
