The Harewood Hockey Club is committed to creating an environment that promotes player, visitor, volunteer and contractor health and safety. The Club will pursue best practice in health and safety and to comply with requirements of the relevant legislation.

This will be achieved by:

  • Access to information will be provided to ensure that all players, coaches and umpires can undertake their duties safely.
  • Safeguarding players, visitors, volunteers and contractors from unnecessary hazards; and where such hazards cannot be eliminated or isolated, the exposure will be minimised.
  • Encouraging participation and consultation.
  • Timely and accurate reporting and investigation of accidents and incidents
  • Adopting a process of continuous improvement.
  • Ensuring players wear the correct protective clothing when and where appropriate

Harewood Hockey – Inclusion policy

The Harewood Hockey Club has an understanding of how the New Zealand Disability Strategy, SPARC No Exceptions Policy and the Christchurch Physical Recreation and Sport Strategy can assist with the inclusion of people with disabilities into physical activity and sport.

The Harewood Hockey Club will endeavour to integrate people with disabilities into their environment and assist them to participate in club activities.

Consideration must be given to safety and the fact that many teams are selected on the participant’s ability to play hockey. Our Mini Hockey is where children with disabilities are most likely to be included.
