Dear Club Members and Parents,
Let me start by saying I hope you are all keeping well during this time of great uncertainty. I know we have many club members and people affiliated with the club who work in healthcare, retail, pharmaceuticals and other industries that are keeping our country going at the moment and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for all that you are doing.
For some teams last weekend would have been the last competitive match of the season with most other teams finishing their seasons over the next couple of weeks however this season has come to an abrupt end.
As some of you may have seen Hockey Ireland have deemed the 2019/20 finished- https://www.hockey.ie/news-detail/10061629/
We await details for the conclusion of the season which are due by April 12th.
There has been lots of hockey skills challenges popping up online as well as online coaching courses that may be of interest to you so while on pitch activity is on hold there are lots of hockey related activities to keep you busy at home….
Unfortunately we have had to cancel our planned Easter camp and for the moment we won’t be planning the usual season extension for our junior age groups, we do hope to have some hockey related activity to get everyone out and active once we have been advised it is safe to do so.
The annual Dinner Dance scheduled for April 18th has also been postponed however an alternative date is being worked on and we will update everyone as soon as we can.
For the moment, I hope you all stay safe and that we will see you all back on the hockey pitch before too long.
Avoca Hockey Club President 2019-20
