10am – 12pm
New Timetable Term 2 – 3 (Winter Sport Calander)
Note times and dates will have to change because of all the Covid changes. So we are back to a similar timetable to last year:
We are waiting with anticipation to hear from St Bernards regarding a start date for Term 2 in the their Gym. Because of this, please keep an eye on either the Club’s website or Facebook page for updates and progress with the club.
We hope you enjoyed your first day back at school for those lucky enough and hope that those who haven’t managed to yet can shortly.
If you have any questions contact Una (president), Robert (head coach) and Russell (senior coach/web master) for more details.
Keep safe and moving. Looking forward to seeing you all really soon! – Una Johnson
As of this Monday, there will be no training sessions for the club until further notice. This is due to the advice that the club officials received yesterday afternoon regarding the level 2 Covid-19 threat. There have been further discussions between the coaches and the president and we think it is everyone’s best interest that we halt any trainings until further notice.
Also, note that this will affect all upcoming competitions and training camps until things return to normal.
We are deeply apologetic for any inconvenience that this may cause but we hope that you understand in these unsure times. Please stay safe and look after those that are vulnerable and the HVFC team look forward to things returning to normal as soon as possible.
