CENTRAL STATEMENT ON COVID-19 (CORONAVIRUS)
A MESSAGE FROM YOUR COMMITTEE
Central Members will be aware of the considerable reporting on the Corona Virus that is occurring and should keep themselves informed with updated ACT government health advice. This advice is available by clicking Here.
Your Central Committee have elected to adopt the lead of our peak association being Hockey Australia. Their most up-to-date communication can be found by clicking Here. However, all members need to be mindful of the safety and well-being of others. In this regard there are a number of simple measures we can all take to minimise the potential for contracting or spreading the infection. These include:
- Replacing handshaking at the start or completion of games with (for example) a stick tap or a thumbs up;
- Do not share food or water;
- Cover nose and mouth with tissue or flexed elbow when coughing or sneezing;
- Keep 1.5m distance from anyone that is coughing or sneezing;
- Use alcohol-based hand wash where available;
- Wash hands with soap and water and dry with paper towel before and after games; and
- Any member with flu-like symptoms should exclude themselves from play at the first sign of symptoms and seek medical advice.
Your committee are monitoring the evolving situation on a regular basis and will advise you as soon as practicable of any material impacts on the Club’s sporting activities as dictated by HA and/or ACT/Federal Government policies.
KATE O’KEFFE – 300 1st GRADE GAME CHAMPION
A massive Central shout-out to Kate O’Keefe (nee Dooley) who played her 300th first grade game for Central on Saturday, 22 June 2019. Central defeated North Canberra Eagles 4 – 0 with Kate scoring a goal – what a way to celebrate!!
Kate O’Keefe Bio:
Kate started playing for Central in 1998 and made her CL1 debut in 2001 when she was 16. Kate travelled from Crookwell to play until moving to Canberra in 2003.
Kate has played every season since her debut and would have played her 300th game last year but only played two games as she was pregnant with her daughter, Hannah.
Kate was in the team which won the CL1 premiership in 2004. Although playing many CL1 finals since, there has not been another premiership. Hopefully there are more to come.
Kate has represented the ACT under 18 and under 21 outdoor teams and ACT under 21 and Open indoor teams. Kate has also coached representative teams including the ACT under 12 Girls school sport team for 8 years (including this year), the ACT under 18 indoor team for 3 years and the ACT under 21 indoor team.
Kate continues the family tradition within Central. Kate says she is lucky to have played CL1 over the years with her sister-in-law, Trina Dooley, and to currently play with her niece, Madi Dooley. Kate’s brothers also played many games for Central CL1 men and her nephew is currently playing CL2 and benching for CL1 for Central.
Congratulations to Kate from all the Central Community.
