Volunteers & Officials are the heart and soul of the Toowoomba Hockey Association.
THA and the 5 Clubs form a Hockey Community which only functions and grows with the help of our amazing volunteers.
There are a number of Volunteer & Officials roles available within in the Association.
Board of Directors
10 volunteer members form the THA Board of Directors to oversee the running of the business.
Director positions are a 3 year term and are voted and elected at the THA Annual General Meeting.
Nominations for Board positions are called for in October. Positions on the Board include: President, Vice-President, Treasurer, Secretary, Hockey Director, Independent Director, plus a Director from each of the 5 Clubs.
The Board of Directors meet once a fortnight on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of each month.
Toowoomba Hockey Committee (THC)
The Hockey Committee runs Hockey!
Each of the 5 major Clubs has a volunteer representative on the Committee who is dedicated to the organisation, management and administration of Hockey in Toowoomba.
The THC delegate role is a 3 year term and is nominated via your Club Executive.
The THC meet once a fortnight on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month.
Judiciary & Appeals Committee
To ensure we provide a safe and fun environment for our members, there may be times in Hockey where an incident or matter must be heard by a Judiciary and/or Appeals Committee. The THA Judiciary and Appeals Committees are both comprised of one member from each Club.
Positions on the Judiciary and Appeals Committees are for a period of 12 months and are nominated via your Club Executive.
Sub-Committee Members and Coordinators
The organisation, management and administration of Hockey is a massive task – so a number of Sub-Committees are formed under the THC to assist with the workload. Some of these Committee’s include:
