There will be a workshop for the new Hockio scoring system, for Secondary Team Managers / Coaches: Friday 19th June, 6.30pm

Cancellation Rules:

Please check the WHA website home page around 2pm for official status of games.

Otherwise: If not cancelled AND weather changes it is up to the Umpires (in consultation with coaches) to determine if the match starts or is abandoned. A game is usually only abandoned for:

  • Thunderstorms (two or more lightning flashes in 5min)
  • Flooding (Surface is covered in water) and is unplayable
  • Any situation the umpires deem unsafe (player safety is paramount)

A game can be started up to 15min late or have a 15min stoppage(e.g. 45min of play can be completed) and a result obtained BUT all games must finish /Stop as normal 5 min before next match is due to start.

Should the game be called off the following rules will apply:

  • If 45min play completed the result will stand.
  • As we don’t have facility to replay or complete ALL matches, all other cancellations will be a recorded as 0-0 Draw.
