On 23rd March,
indoor sporting venues were closed due to COVID-19 restrictions. At the time,
IHNSW advised that the postponement of the 2020 Winter Season would be reviewed
in one month when further information was available.
As expected, all NSW indoor
sporting venues remain closed for public health and safety, and so
unfortunately we confirm that this postponement will be extended until such
time that the restrictions are lifted and community sport activities can
IHNSW will continue to
liaise with the NSW Office of Sport for updates, and eagerly await the outcomes
of the National Cabinet meeting in the coming weeks which will discuss the
future of community sport.
We are staying in touch with
facilities and can report that some are taking the opportunity to carry out
maintenance. We will continue to work
with all rinks to ensure we can restart our sport as quickly and smoothly as
possible once the authorities give us the green light.
As always, IHNSW would like
to thank members for their patience and support – and we look forward to being
able to provide an update on the season once it is available.
IHNSW would like to provide
an update for members, club committees and stakeholders on the current
situation as a result of COVID-19.
IHA and state bodies have
been in discussion regarding the best process for providing members refunds for
the postponed 2020 Winter Season. This requires careful consideration towards a
number of factors, including the future of the season, if it will be delayed
but continue as in previous years, if it will be in a modified format, or if it
will be able to resume at all. Consideration must also be given to ensuring
that all bodies remain viable and able to restart the competition with active
members when the time comes to do so.
IHA has proposed a process
which will allow each entity to determine the level of refund that they are
able to provide to members. This process has been outlined to states and clubs,
and will commence in the coming days.
Members will receive
communication with more details from each body of which they hold membership,
IHA, IHNSW and their club.
IHNSW would like to thank
members for their patience and support – and we look forward to being able to
provide an update on the season once it is available.
