Dear TVHC Community, As many of you would be aware, the Hockey ACT Board met on Sunday and made the decision to postpone indefinitely the 2020 winter season, including all training, due to the global Coronavirus pandemic. This postponement is with the view to monitor the situation over the coming months, but it is unlikely the season will commence prior to May 2020, if at all. If required, HACT has the option of extending the season into October 2020. The TVHC Committee supports this decision as it is in the best interest of all players, officials and wider ACT community. In terms of TVHC Registration fees and potential for refunds, the Committee is awaiting formal advice from HACT as to our outstanding debts at this stage. Please bear in mind we have already conducted one week of training and purchased the new playing shirts to cover our projected junior and senior player numbers for 2020. We will provide more detailed information to our members in the coming weeks. Finally, HACT will be contacting all members this week with their most up to date information regarding the COVID-19 situation. Your health and the health of your families has been at the forefront of our decision making these past weeks, and we thank you all for your loyalty to Vikings Hockey. We have received a significant amount of positive feedback of late, and we are grateful for your patience and understanding during these uncertain times. Yours in Hockey TVHC Committee 23 March 2020 #SkolVikings

Registration & Come and Try Day
Registration Day for 2020 will be held on Sunday the 23rd of February from 9am-12pm at the Tuggeranong Hockey Park, this will be held in conjunction with Hockey ACT's 'Come and Try Day'.
We encourage all members to bring their friends and family down to have a run around and give hockey a go, whilst also conveniently registering for the upcoming outdoor season.
For more information please contact your relevant registrar.
The committee has decided no singular grading day will be held in 2020. Instead, based on feedback we have received across the club and what is considered best practice, players will be assessed over the two training sessions before the season commences, then in games and training up until the fourth round. In line with the TVHC Player Selection Policy, Registrars are in the process of putting together an independent Selection Committee, who will be responsible for assessing players over these trainings/games, with teams finalised after Round 4. Factors also taken into consideration will be what grade the player has nominated for, as well as consulting with relevant coaches.
