Welcome to the Queenstown Ice Hockey club website. Latest news for the club is below.
What a great weekend!
I was in Dunedin for the first round of the SIHL U15 and U18 hockey. Lots of great results all round. It is really gratifying to see so many kids from our club on the ice to mark the beginning of the season.
I would like to especially thank the club captains who have committed their time and energy to our teams - Jimmy, Sandra, Hayley and Kerrin - Thank You! I would also like to thank Julia and Hayley for sorting all of the jerseys and socks...of which I have heard are in the washing machine right now. Another shout out and a thank you to those that helped on the benches over the weekend.
Please note going forward, any players (or parent's of) wishing to be considered to play up or down from their age group must consult in the first instance with their age group club captain, who would then discuss the matter with the other respective age group club captain, and their collective decision is final. As it is, our numbers are looking good at each age group, so it is unlikely that there will be a necessity for movement amongst age groups.
Once again, what a great weekend for our junior club. Congratulations to all.
Further to the situation with players playing out of their age group, the issue has been raised with the Southern Ice Hockey League for clarification. Response follows:
Any player playing in an age group either above or below must attain a dispensation from SIHL prior to playing and this must include parental consent. The dispensation must be endorsed by the club, and then sent to SIHL. The dispensation then needs to be approved by SIHL on the grounds that the player is required due to numbers, and also that they are of an ability and level to play in that age group.
In previous years, players have been provided dispensation to play up as numbers were insufficient. However as a guide for the 2021 season, the U18 age group has sufficient numbers and the necessity to draw on younger players to play up will not be required, should any dispensation be received.
With regard to players playing down for the 2021 season, it is within the interest of SIHL to facilitate for those that do not have the prospect of hockey and will always view this in the context of not wanting to lose anyone from the sport.
Any further communication regarding this will be back to SIHL committee.
We look forward to seeing everyone at the next round at the Queenstown Ice Arena in June.
