Back in the Game

Welcome to the Sunshine Coast Hockey Association

For new enquiries, please visit the Clubs page where a host of information is available. 

Attention Junior Players & Parents

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?

SCHA Annual Report - 2020

Notice of 2020 AGM & Board Nominations

Updated 12/11

SCHA would like to give notice of the upcoming AGM scheduled for Wednesday 18th November 2020 at 7pm, to be held in the SCHA Clubhouse. Covid Safe Plans are still in place and social distancing and Covid Safe practices must be adhered to.

 

If you have any questions relating to the role of any Board position, please do not hesitate to contact us for discussion.

 

The new Smart TV has been installed and will have the State of Origin Game 3 on the screen after the AGM for anyone keen to watch.

Update

In addition, you can find a copy of the Sunshine Coast Hockey Association bylaws, which have been amended to reflect the current operations of the association, on the Sunshine Coast Hockey Association website under Policies and Rules tab.

Minor amendments include:

  • Update on other complementary documentation as indicated in 1.2.2

  • Formal acknowledgement of Masters Hockey Sunshine Coast as an affiliated club at bylaw 2.1

  • Clarification regarding the role of secretary at 3.2.

  • Clarification regarding association roles that may be filled by employees or contractors at 3.4

  • Formal acknowledgement of Sunshine Coast Indoor Hockey as a subcommittee of the association at 3.5

  • Modernisation of the standing orders for meetings at 4.4

 

Given updates to the bylaws, the board has decided to postpone adoption of a new constitution. The Associations Incorporation Act 1981, under which Sunshine Coast Hockey Association is established as a legal entity, was amended in June 2020. Changes to the Act will take effect incrementally over the coming two years. The association is therefore able to take more time and follow a consultative process of constitution review, ensuring all affiliated clubs and members have an opportunity to provide input.

Come & Play Hockey In 2021

Sunshine Coast Hockey is played at Buderim at the SCHA International facility on Ballinger Rd. Winter fixtures for all ages and divisions are played every weekend at the one venue. Season 2021 will commence in early March however Clubs will start training and having their sign-ons from late January. To find a Club and for more information, click here 

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.

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.
