To The Hockey Community,
My heart goes out to those in our community (and indeed the world) struggling with the many impacts of COVID-19. From the loss of life, to the displacement and isolation, and of course the economic impact.
Now is the time for every member of our #TeamQLD community to come together and take care of each other. The passion of the Queensland hockey community is legendary and in this challenging time I ask that you channel this into supporting and connecting with your club and association members.
We must all draw on the TeamQLD values of resilience, communication and unity within the team to ensure that we can come out the other side of this united and strong.
I would like to thank our Clubs and Associations in advance for your understanding as we navigate through these uncertain times.
Hockey Queensland have been keeping abreast of Coronavirus (COVID-19) and monitoring information as it comes to hand from the relevant authorities. We are working around the clock with Government, Hockey Australia, Hockey Queensland Board and our stakeholders to adapt to this unprecedented environment.
Our aim is to build a foundation to give hockey the best chance of remaining sustainable across Queensland, and ensuring that when the time comes we can recover quickly.
The HQ team will continue to do everything we can to be ready and to get everyone back on the field when it is safe to do so.
Associations and Clubs will receive continuous support and their input is crucial to the future landscape of hockey. I urge our Associations and Clubs to reach out to Hockey Queensland with questions and for support, so we can work through these hurdles together.
"Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much." – Helen Keller
Adversity can result in success and I am confident hockey will come through this stronger than ever before because of the support we give to each other now in these difficult times.
Stay safe and at a distance.
