In the even of wet weather. A rule of thumb is that all games are on.
The games will be cancelled if the playing surface becomes unplayable or there is the threat of lightning.
The Fields at the State Hockey Center are a water based artificial turf, with excellent drainage. I.E . The fields can be covered with water and within 15 mins have fully drained.
There will be a notice placed on the website at 5:00pm on match day if the games have been cancelled. If in doubt please don’t hesitate to contact us
The surface of the playing fields are a water based artificial turf. So any type of foot wear is acceptable (as long as they are not hard studded boots).
It comes down to personal preference, all types of footwear work on the surface. None will leave you slipping on the spot. Here are a few examples:
FUTSAL SHOES – HAVE GREAT FEEL ON THE BALL
JOGGERS – TRADE OFF FEEL ON THE BALL FOR BETTER GRIP
HOCKEY/CRICKET BOOTS – ARE PURPOSELY DESIGNED FOR ARTIFICIAL GRASS, GREAT GRIP BUT LIKE THE JOGGERS, LESS FEEL FOR THE BALL AT YOUR FEET.
