AHL Support letter to members and supporters

21 March 2019
Dear Burnside Hockey Club Supporters
As many of you may have heard and seen in today’s media, Hockey SA National Shame, HockeySA has advised all clubs that due to the late withdrawal of the NT from the proposed combined SA and NT AHL entry, mens and womens teams, SA now has to raise $100,000 immediately to be able to nominate SA mens and womens teams in the AHL.
We are making approaches to possible major sponsors but the time is short and the outcome is uncertain. So in the interests of hockey in SA, I am calling on our hockey supporters for support and I ask if you or people or organisations you know will contribute as a sponsor or donor to ensure South Australia doesn’t fall out of the AHL.
This is not about supporting just the current elite players in SA but its every bit as much about securing the future of hockey in SA, for your children and theirs in years to come.
Hockey SA has put development programs in place in recent years which many BHC juniors have been involved in. It’s imperative that all our juniors who aspire to play at the highest level can identify with senior state men and women, and aspire to one day represent the state at the highest level.
Please help us to ensure our state and our players continue to have this opportunity. If you can help through a business sponsorship or a personal donation, please contact me at to discuss. Or for any donations no matter the size, please visit the site gofundme.
