FAQ – Changes to 2021 Intermediate Competition

What does Goalie Optional mean for the Kiwisticks Division? 

Teams have the choice to play a fully padded Goalie.  Otherwise they must use 7 field players.  Of those 7 players they cannot have a kicking back or have a player who stands in front of the goal during the game.

Defending players may only stand infront of the goal when defending the ball from attack.  Team without a fully padded Goalie cannot have a field player stand inside the goal for an extended period as a goalie unless defending the ball from attack.

What are Player Registrations and how do players register? 

This is now a requirement of ALL PLAYERS from 2021 in order to play in our competitions.

Every player must register through their school sporty online registration form.  Players MUST BE REGISTERED by their parent / guardian before they can play.  Players are not to be registered by their school.  Schools should all have a sporty login, if you need your login details, or your school does not have a login, please email office@hockeymanawatu.org.nz for assistance.

Note: The fees have been kept the same to allow for the additional costs involved with using the turf and the additional Health & Safety requirements post Covid-19.
