COVID-19 Update - MON 1/6/20

We’re back!

Today, Hockey SA announced that the 2020 Metro Season will commence weekend starting Friday 19th June.

I would like to take this opportunity to thanks Andrew Skillern, Nadine Hewson, Max Bail and the team at Hockey SA for their management of the COVID-19 situation in relation to our sport and their communication and consultation throughout. With conflicting sources of information and targets that were constantly moving, they have done an admirable job in securing our return to competition as soon as has been possible. 

I would also like to thank the Burnside Hockey Club Committee for their commitment in managing this process with the health and safety of our community as the number one priority, while planning the return to training and competition as soon as we had the all clear.

Finally, I would like to acknowledge and thank Sean Faulkner for his efforts in compiling thorough COVID 19 plans and risk assessments which will help guide the Club as we navigate Season 2020 and beyond.

With only 3 weeks now until competition, if you have not already, it is time to get back on the track and get yourself cherry ripe for Round 1! I am thrilled that we have been able to re-nominate all teams that we had planned for 2020 and in the Metro Comp will be fielding teams in PL, M1, M2, M4 & M5 for women and PL, M1, M3, M5, M6 & Masters for men.

Registrations are now open and you can find information about it on our website here: https://www.burnsidehockeyclub.com.au/registration-info/.
