To all clubs,
From 11:59pm this evening, Thursday 27 May 2021, Victoria will enter a 7-day lockdown.
This means that, among all other restrictions, all Hockey activities in Victoria must be suspended. As we are a border community and our clubs have members on both sides of the border, this means that we will not have any games this weekend and there can be no training in Victoria. For Albury clubs, they can continue to train but only for their members who live in NSW. This is in force at this stage until to 11:59pm on Thursday 3 June 2021.
In terms of Hockey Albury Wodonga’s competitions, this means that the following competitions will not go ahead during this lockdown period:
- Junior competitions on Friday 28 and Saturday 29 May 2021
- Senior competitions on Saturday 29 May and Sunday 30 May 2021
- Masters competitions on Monday 31 May 2021
- Xypex Spitfires games on Saturday 29 May and Sunday 30 May 2021
Clubs will be notified in the coming days of how we plan to manage the fixtured rounds of Hockey that will not occur due to the lockdown.
At this stage, we intend to restart all Hockey activities on Friday 4 June but this is subject to change.
We will provide further updates as soon as any relevant information becomes available.
