Message from FHC Management Committee

Hockey SA response to Coronavirus

The club has received advice on the March 18th 2020 from Hockey SA that all games and training will be cancelled until further notice in response to the Coronavirus Pandemic. This advice is consistent with the position adopted by Hockey Australia.

We understand that the Hockey Australia and Hockey SA response is intended to both ensure:

  • The health of hockey players is not put at risk
  • The hockey community supports measures which will slow the spread of the virus throughout the Australian population.

The club management committee supports the Hockey SA position and confirm that the club will not play any competitions or conduct training sessions until further notice. We are unable, at this time, to determine when competitions and training will recommence-we will continue to monitor circumstances and respond accordingly.

If you need more information about the Coronavirus and the things you can do to avoid infection and contribute to slowing its spread please go to the Health.gov.au website-

https://www.health.gov.au/news/health-alerts/novel-coronavirus-2019-ncov-health-alert

 

Registration and membership fees

We acknowledge the postponement of the Hockey SA metropolitan competition may require changes to the structure and timing of the competitions. If this occurs, we would anticipate adjustments to our major costs which may require a review of our club fees.

Given this uncertainty we ask you not to pay your membership fees until further notice.

We know that some club members have paid their membership fees already-either through the on-line registration system or by EFT to the club bank account. The club will contact members who have paid their fees already and discuss what they would like to do.

If you have any queries about membership fees please email TreasurerFHC@outlook.com.

Keeping you up to date

We will keep you as up to date as possible through Facebook and newsletters. Please look after yourselves, stay up to date on the pandemic from reputable sources, and listen to government advice.

Let’s be positive and hope that we will be able to play some hockey later in the year.

FHC named Good Sports SA Club of the Year

Forestville Hockey Club is extremely proud to announce that we have been named the 2018 Good Sports SA Club of the Year.

2018 Junior Reports

The hard-working, superstar coaches of our many junior teams have drummed up some fabulous team reports, reflecting on the 2018 season. Links are below.

From our 2018 Junior Coordinator, Julie Mills:

Forestville has enjoyed one of its most successful junior seasons for many years. We had 12 teams competing across Under 9’s to Under 18’s and in total nearly 140 junior players in these teams (Under 9’s and Under 11’s are smaller teams on quarter and half field pitches).

We had two premiership wins – Under 11 White mixed and Under 18 B boys, and another top of the table performance from Under 9 Blue (no official premiership in this age group). The Under 13B boys were runners up, Under 13A girls and Under 18B girls were third, Under 15 girls missed finals by a single goal and all teams had many good wins over the season.

Four players were selected for the U12 state teams (Charlee W, Ella B, Lucy N and Sam W) with Ella and Lucy also selected for the U13 state team, and Ruby selected as a train on. These players and several more were also selected for the Developing Athlete program with Hockey SA, so the future is looking bright.

A huge thanks to so many willing helpers for the season, the coaches, the managers and the junior committee, who all give up their time to help make our junior program the success it is. As always the best thing is to see our junior players out there every week, developing their hockey, forming and cementing friendships, and above all having fun. We hope to see everyone back to do it again in 2019!
