New Association Name
At the 2014 Annual General Meeting 2 very important resolutions were passed:
  • Change the name of the Association to Metropolitan South West Hockey Association
  • Change the Constitution of the Association to reflect changes in the Association

Changes to this website will be completed as time permits.
In September 2013 Hockey NSW directed that certain Associations be reformed to reflect certain minimum requirements. As a result Macarthur Hockey Association, Campbelltown City Hockey Association & Moorebank Liverpool District Hockey Club were required to be merged as a single identity..
As a result Metropolitan South West Hockey Association was formed. The working group implementing this decided the easiest way was to rename Macarthur Hockey Association, change the rules and to include member clubs under certain criteria.
Players playing in competitions in 2014 will see no changes in their competitions into 2015.
The Board will over the coming months be making minor changes to the ways some things are handled.
Control of Children
Some children have been left to their own devices and the change rooms were left in a mess by - clubs and parents should ensure that players with children leave them under the supervision of a suitable adult at all times.
Complex Rules
Complex Rules and Code of behaviour are expected to be adhered to by all visitors. The rules can be found here.
Mouth-Guards & Shin-Pads
Mouth-Guards and Shin-Pads are compulsory for all players.
All players must wear properly fitted mouth-guards and shin-pads in all competition and training environments.
It is further recommended that mouth-guards should be fitted in accordance with guidelines from the Australian Dental Association.
Those adults who have a valid medical reason must produce an official medical certificate on an official letterhead, stating they can not wear a mouth-guard due to their medical condition, and complete a Player Agreement Waiver (available here) and have it signed by their Club Secretary as well as either the VP - Operations or Association Secretary. The player must then present the form and Doctor's Certificate for each match.

Player Recruitment Scheme
Macarthur Hockey Association Board has created the 2008 Player Recruitment Scheme for Clubs in it's budget.
Basically, for each 10 players (not part thereof) that a club picks up on top of the number of players that played in the previous year the club will receive $500.00
By the first weekend in June (inclusive) a club must::
  • The club must register players, with all details, to the relevant Records Officer.
  • Each new and previous player must have played at least 3 matches to be counted.
  • All fees payable by that date by the club should have been paid.
  • The new players must not have been registered with or played with a club in the Macarthur Competition for at least 3 years.
  • The players need not play in the same team.
Use Of Complex
Recently, clubs and representative teams have been slack with regards to bookings of the field.
Not only can this cause friction when authorised groups show up, it also leaves the people organising such use of the field with insurance and legal issues. To be plain if you are not booked in you are not insured and the person in charge is personally liable for improper use of the facilities.
Anyone found to be using the fields without a prior booking will be charged amount equal to the amount of field time used (taking into account minimum charges).
Bookings are to be made through the Booking Officer: Frank Lauc.
Spectator Behaviour
Parents and spectators are reminded that umpires and players should be shown respect, courtesy and applauded for their efforts. They should not be treated in any negative manner nor criticised for mistakes or perceived errors.
Many spectators have a spectacular ignorance of the actual rules but still feel that they can criticise an umpire from the anonymity of the side line. Some of these young umpires are doing an excellent job and of course will make mistakes just as players do, but they are out there doing a tough job.
Any individual willing to criticise should get off their backsides and start umpiring themselves to help the association.This might give them a better insight to umpiring and at least a thorough knowledge of the rules.
Risk Warning
Risk Warning Under Section 5M of The Civil Liability Act 2002
  • Macarthur Hockey Association & Hockey NSW administers and convenes hockey activities in which many students, parents, spectators, convenors, umpires and others participate.
  • Macarthur Hockey Association expects all participants in Macarthur Hockey Association & Hockey NSW events to take responsibility for their own safety by observing instructions, rules and guidelines, by wearing compulsory safety equipment when applicable and by behaving in a safe and responsible manner towards other participants, officials, property and grounds.
  • While Macarthur Hockey Association takes measures to make the sporting activities as safe as possible for all participants, there is a risk that those involved may be injured and suffer loss (including financial loss) and damage as a result of their participation in these hockey activities, whether at training or in actual events.
  • Injury can occur while the participant is engaging in, watching or officiating at a hockey activity, or traveling to and from the event. The injury may result from the participant's actions or the actions of others.
  • On some occasions, an injury can be serious (such as torn ligaments, dislocations, back injuries, concussion or broken bones). In very rare cases the injury can be life threatening or result in permanent disability. If a participant has a pre-existing injury, participating in a sporting activity could result in an exacerbation of that injury.
  • Participants could also suffer loss as a result of their personal property being lost, stolen, damaged or destroyed.
