**IMPORTANT NOTICE**  - ADDITIONAL INFORMATION REQUIRED WHEN REGISTERING

The New Zealand COVID-19 Protection Framework (traffic lights system) came into effect on 3 December 2021, from which date a valid 'My Vaccine Pass' was required for access to the entire Hockey Manawaty facility.

In order for us to comply with the new COVID protection framework (traffic light system), valid Vaccine Passes are required to host or participate in sports or events within our HMI facility.

To assist with these requirements, we have added the following compulsory section to our registration forms:

  1. There is now a question field that lets a person add their Vaccine Pass by scanning their QR code or uploading the PDF of the pass they received from the Ministry of Health (MoH).
  2. There is now a question field that lets a person upload a headshot (face/shoulders with no hats/facecoverings/sunglasses please)

ALL PLAYERS registering for our 2022 U18 Academy and/or U18 Trials are required to complete these sections

Please note all visitors are also required to comply with the following general measures:

  • Everyone entering our facilities MUST scan in via the COVID Tracer QR Code.
  • Face coverings should be worn by all visitors, except while actually playing or officiating in a game at the time.
  • Exercise responsible social distancing while watching hockey. Generally this means maintaining at least a 1m distance from others.
  • If you feel unwell, please do not come to the hockey facilities.

It is important that we provide our staff, members, and visitors with a safe environment in which they can play hockey and enjoy our facilities, including the turfs, café, bar and clubhouse. 

We encourage our members and visitors to get vaccinated as soon as possible and to download their ‘My Vaccine Pass’ on a scannable device, to continue enjoying hockey experiences at our facilities.

Please continue to treat everyone in our community with respect, kindness and understanding no matter if their views may be different to your own.
