The following proposed special resolution will be presented to members for consideration at the association's Annual General Meeting on Wednesday 18 November 2020:


That Sunshine Coast Hockey Association Incorporated adopt its proposed constitution as the rules of the association


Sunshine Coast Hockey Association is currently finalising a draft new constitution with the support of CPR Group, local sport and recreation consultants and long-term partner of the association. This draft will be made available to members for review and feedback as soon as possible.

Summer Hockey Update

We have had some nominations for Summer Hockey however the program is not happening as some major works are expected to happen soon at the facility during the off season (turf replacement). However don't forget Indoor as another great alternative!

Licensing Permit Change

Effective immediately, our Liquor Licensing Permit Area has changed. Patrons may now consume alcohol within the enclosed fenced SCHA main facility with the following exceptions:

  • Alcohol cannot be consumed in the Change Rooms

  • Alcohol cannot be consumed in the playing area (downstairs turf & tech)

  • Alcohol cannot be consumed in the carparks within the perimeter

  • The Permit does not include the grass fields playing areas.

  • Alcohol cannot be brought into the facility.

  • Hours of operation remain unchanged

Patrons can now enjoy a refreshment anywhere on the mounds and viewing areas around the turf. This is now a permanent component of the Licence.

 

 

IMPORTANT COVID UPDATE AUGUST 4th

With recently reported positive COVID-19 cases confirmed in South East Queensland, please note the advice below received from the Queensland Government Sport and Recreation department.

Any person who has visited affected locations identified by Queensland Health should not attend organised sport, active recreation or fitness activities until further information on the situation comes to hand. These locations can be found here via the contact tracing alerts page. You can also stay up to date with all COVID-19 Queensland Health alerts here.

Please ensure any of your family or friends who may be thinking of attending hockey are aware of this information.

Access is restricted to anyone who has:

  • COVID-19 or has been in direct contact with a known case of Covid-19 within the last 14 days

  • Flu-like symptoms or who is a high health risk (e.g. due to age or pre-existing conditions)

  • Travelled internationally

  • Travelled to a Covid declared hotspot.

 

We have also been advised that Queensland Health are auditing sport to check that contact tracing information can be provided.  It is therefore more important than ever that EVERYONE who attends our grounds sign in either via the QR code check in or the manual sign in books on top of the trophy cabinet inside the front door of the clubhouse (outside the office) and on a table outside the glass doors at northern end of the clubhouse.

Families can scan once and enter details of additional members.

If your phone will not scan QR Codes, check-in is available by clicking on this link which you can then save. https://my.evacheckin.com/4085xyvt

While as Associations and Clubs we are responsible for implementing the government restrictions, all individuals are responsible for following requirements to keep themselves and others safe by signing in, adhering to social distancing and hygiene requirements. 

Thank you again for all your efforts to keep everyone playing hockey in a safe environment.

ATTENDANCE REGISTERS (Aug 4th Update)

With a change in the requirements from the Qld Government, we need to be able to provide a list of attendees at our facility within an hour. As a result we can no longer rely on fixture team sheets or training attendance registers as a record of someone having attended SCHA.

This means that effective immediately, everyone who enters into the facility (grass or turf), must either have their name logged via EvaCheckin or via the manual sign in books. Parents and caregivers will need to ensure kids are checked in when they arrive/dropped off at the fields.

We have the signs around the grounds (turf and grass) to scan and check in or you can use the URL link (https://my.evacheckin.com/4085xyvt) to check in.

If you are checking in as a party of more than 1 person please ensure you list the full names of all members of your group. An additional free text box has been added to allow for the easy addition of names.

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.
