Abuse of officials is nothing new across sport. IHNZ has developed a programme to tackle inappropriate behaviour and improve the experience of everyone involved in Inline Hockey, particularly our referees.
The 2021 season has kicked off with successful events held in both Hamilton and Nelson to date and many clubs holding their pre-season musters. Club training has started for some with other clubs looking to start over the next few weeks.
New Plymouth Ravens are proud to be supporting IHNZ and Secondary School Sport NZ and sad that they had to cancel in 2020 due to Covid-19. This event replaces the 2020 event cancelled due to pandemic restrictions.
There have been three confirmed cases of COVID-19 in South Auckland. As a result, the Government announced at 7pm on Sunday evening that the Auckland region will move from Alert Level 1 to Alert Level 3 from midnight for the next 72 hours.
Inline Hockey New Zealand wish to advise of a vacancy on the IHNZ Board and are seeking expressions of interest from those who would like to be a part of the governance structure for Inline Hockey in New Zealand.
Under the present circumstances and based on the information provided with the current government announcements made today, a decision has been made by IHNZ to cancel both the Inline Hockey Nationals 2020 event and the Inline Hockey InterRegionals 2020 event.
The Auckland region (from Wellsford in the north, to Pukekohe in the south) is currently in Alert Level 3 restrictions for the next three days. The rest of the country will be in Alert Level 2 until midnight Friday.
Remember the message that if you are feeling unwell to not attend trainings. Whilst none of the public health requirements are mandatory – it is important to remain vigilant and continue to practice good hygiene to minimise the risk of community transmission.
The move to Alert Level 1 is great news for New Zealand sport and recreation as it signals the end of formal restrictions. The main controls under Alert Level 1 are border limitations and managed isolation or quarantine for people entering the country.
