Covid Update as at 29th April 2021
Hockey QLD has provided all HQ Associations with an update and clarification on a couple of Covid requirements:
- HQ Associations will cease using the Eva Check In app from Saturday 1st May 2021. As agreed on by Association Presidents on 28th April 2021.
- HQ Associations will commence using the QLD Check In app from Saturday 1st May 2021. As agreed on by Association Presidents on 28th April 2021.
- All persons attending the SCHA Facility for any reason at anytime MUST check in via the QLD Check In App.
- Covid update: currently we are no longer operating under an industry plan for Field Hockey (Indoor Hockey is still required to abide by the Indoor Sports Plan). Outdoor sporting venues can resume activities as they were pre-Covid, however you must adhere to the following principles:
1. Check in with the QLD Check in App
2. Maintain good hygiene. Make sure you still have your hand sanitiser available and wipe down high touch points.
3. Maintain Social Distancing off the field.
4. Wear a mask in crowded places and when you can't socially distance.

SCHA Goes Cashless from 1st March 2021
From 1st March 2021 SCHA facility will not be accepting cash transactions. This advise is under the ratification of the SCHA Board.
Bar and Canteen transactions will be processed via EFTPOS only. This will align with our upgrade to new Canteen and Bar registers.
I wanted to confirm that the introductory hockey sessions that I ran last week were a once off and not ongoing. Don't you worry though...keep an eye out on this page for some upcoming development and training opportunities for both junior and senior players!!
Have your say: email me if you have any ideas for activities or sessions over the summer that you would love to participate in?

Register Your Business or Trade!
We are currently setting up a business directory on the SCHA website. The reason for this is twofold – (a) SCHA often gets Grants plus require other services and would rather put the business to our members than outsourcing further and (b) it would be a great opportunity for members to be able to utilise other members knowing the business stays within our community.
To register your name, please click here and submit and we will include you on the listing.
