Training Returns to KalaHockey

This week marks a major milestone in our return to playing hockey. It’s taken a while to get here and we very much appreciate your understanding in these difficult times. We can now confirm that training recommences this week for all senior players and select Juniors.

There are a lot of resources out there, so we’ve compiled an easy list so everyone understands what the club expects from them and what they can expect from the club. These have been developed based on advice from Hockey WA and the City of Kalamunda, as well as information from the State Government of Western Australia around Phase 2 Restrictions.

Expectations of Players – get in, get out

  • Arrival
    Players will need to wait in their cars until their training time. At Guildford, there will be a meeting area at the Northern End of the field near the toilets for teams to gather from 10 mins prior to training. At Hartfield Park, please wait in your car until your coach is ready for you. Training is staggered to support this.
  • Stick to your zone
    Each zone will have a maximum of 20 people allowed for training and players/coaches cannot cross between zones, including warm ups.
  • Players will need to come to training ready to go
    There will be no change facilities. Only bring what you need to train – stick, water bottle, car keys. The dugouts and seating will be closed so there is nowhere to leave your bags.
  • Facilities
    The only facilities available at Hartfield Park and Guildford are the toilets (and for “emergencies” only). There is no access to the changerooms/water fountains/clubroom etc
  • Sanitise
    Hand wash or sanitise before, during and after training. The venue and coaches will have sanitiser for you
  • Sign In
    Coaches will take a record of all players at training. Please make sure the club has your up to date contact details. You must be a registered player to train
  • Hygiene
    If you are not well, please don’t come to training. If a Coach notices you are not well, you will be sent home.

Expectations of Coaches

  • Physical distancing is still in effect.
    Coaches will be running training and drills that keep players 1.5m apart.
  • Sign In
    Coaches will need to take a record of players at their training session (both hockey and fitness training from 27th May). A scan or copy of this list must be sent to after each training session. If training at Guildford, this will also need to be sent electronically to Guildford.
  • Infection Training
    All coaches will need to complete the COVID-19 Infection course before being able to recommence training with their team. We encourage all KalaHockey members to complete this training – it is online, free, and takes less than 20 minutes to complete.
  • Hygiene
    KalaHockey will provide all coaches with sanitiser and disinfectant for equipment to be used after each session.

Expectations of the Club

  • Spectators
    At this time we can’t accommodate spectators at Hartfield Park or Guildford. All seating is closed and there are no facilities accessible.
  • Drop off
    If you are being dropped off at Guildford or Hartfield Park, the driver can either wait in their car until training is finished or leave and come back. Groups should not be formed for socialising in car parks.
  • Hygiene
    In each toilet and at other convenient locations you will find a Sanitising Station. Coaches will also have sanitiser, so players can sanitise inside their Zone

We are still waiting for confirmation of the season fixtures and revised fees. At this time, most Juniors and Minkey hockey is still on pause, and we will keep you posted on any developments. If you have any feedback or suggestions following training this week please send to so we can keep improving on our processes.
