26th August 2021
Dear Maitland Hockey Inc players and families,
We hope that everyone is staying safe and healthy during the pandemic, despite being unable to play hockey and not seeing our hockey friends each week.
This morning the Premier announced that the Hunter Region will continue in lockdown until 10th September. After that date, it is likely that there will be a gradual easing of Covid restrictions, so it is uncertain when community sport will be allowed again.
In the light of this uncertainty, the MHI Executive met and has sadly decided to abandon the remaining weeks of our 2021 Women’s and Junior Winter competitions.
The MHI Treasurer will be refunding four weeks’ turf fees to each of the women’s teams. Team organisers will then contact their players to let them know refund options. Junior players/families will be contacted separately by the MHI Treasurer about refund options.
The Executive discussed some possible scenarios for Summer and the 2022 season, including a possible pre-season competition or other format. Options will be further discussed and will be organised when it is safe to do so. We will keep you all informed via Revolutionise, the website, email and Facebook.
We would like to acknowledge and thank all players, parents, umpires and volunteers who have contributed to the 2021 MHI hockey season. It’s very disappointing that we are unable to celebrate the culmination of our competitions with finals and presentations, however we look forward to when our hockey community can meet together again and enjoy playing hockey safely.
Yours in hockey,
President Maitland Hockey Inc
NSW regions will remain in lockdown until 28th August, so unfortunately there will be NO HOCKEY at Maitland this Saturday 21st August or next Saturday 28th August 2021.
Training and Junior matches are also cancelled until further notice,
Please watch this space for further updates. Stay safe everyone!
Unfortunately due to the new Newcastle/Hunter lockdowns we will be unable to train or play hockey for the next 7 days (5-12 August 2021).
The Execs have made the decision to also cancel the Women’s round scheduled for the following week (14/8) and the Junior carnival scheduled for the 15th.
Stay safe and we look forward to seeing you all when we come back.

- If you live, work or have visited the Greater Sydney area since (and including) Monday 21st June for ANY reason, you are required to Stay At Home for 14 days after you last left Greater Sydney. This means you cannot attend the Maitland Hockey Centre and participate in any games or training in any form. If you do not follow this requirement you are in breach of the NSW Government Public Health Orders and can be fined by police.
The Greater Sydney Area includes: All Sydney Local Government Areas and Central Coast Local Council area.

2. There is a mandatory requirement for masks to be worn at outside organised sporting events. As our sport is an organised sport, you will be required to wear one. Masks may be removed if you are playing or officiating, eating or drinking, but must be worn at all other times. It is expected that coaches, duty officers, technical bench etc will comply with this requirement.
o MHI will be enforcing the requirements and if you arrive without a mask, you will be asked to wear one by the Duty Officer at the gate.
