Skate Australia, the Inline Hockey Australia National Executive Committee and Skate Australia Victoria Inline Hockey(SAVI) are proud to announce the 2014 Inline Hockey National Championships will be heading to Geelong, Victoria this year!

SAVI submitted a successful tender to host the event from the 26th of September to the 4th of October at Geelong Arena. It has been nine years since Victoria has hosted the Inline Hockey National Championships.

Supported by the City of Greater Geelong, the National Championships will see teams all across Australia battle it out for the National Trophy.

This event also provides players with the opportunity to be selected for the 2015 Australian Representative teams that participate in Oceania and World Championships.

SAVI Chairperson Don Intine says this is an incredible opportunity for Victorian Inline Hockey and SAVI.

“Our committee have been working really hard over the past two years, and this is just a perfect reward and opportunity for us and our members.”

“SAVI are SO ready to host the Nationals Championships,"

The ILHA NEC, Skate Australia and SAVI look forward to seeing you all there!

Skate Australia and Inline Hockey Australia are happy to announce that the 2014 Oceania Inline Hockey Championship between Australia and New Zealand is scheduled for 5-8 July 2014 and will be held in Hamilton, New Zealand.

The change in dates have been requested by New Zealand, as they advised us that the original Easter timing would significantly increase cost for the participants. After both parties considered a range of alternate dates, and took into account the school holidays for both Australia and New Zealand. The dates selected were agreed as mutually suitable.

Hamilton boasts a fantastic brand new facility with a Sportcourt floor, and is the perfect host venue for the Championships.

The 2014 Oceania Championships will include 12U, 14U, 16U, Masters and Veterans divisions. Unfortunately, New Zealand advise that they are unable to field an 21U division due to a large number of players competing in Worlds. Quite a number of Australia’s U21s will also be competing at Worlds.

Team members in the participating divisions, selected at the 2013 Inline Hockey National Championships, will receive detailed information in the next week.

Skate Australia would like to thank the ILHA National Executive Committee, and the NEC acting Chair - Dave Roberts and Krys Beardman of New Zealand Inline Hockey, for the significant time they have invested in the past two months to finalise these negotiations.

Background
On 28 September 2013, the scheduled Annual Meeting did not proceed as it had not been properly constituted in accordance with Bylaw 20, due to the agenda and associated annual meeting documents not being provided with the 4 week timeframe. As ILHA NEC is a sub-committee of Skate Australia and subject to the direction of the Skate Australia Board (27.3 a of the Constitution), the Board declared the business of the meeting cannot be transacted (this includes all motions, reports and elections).
The positions where terms ended at the National Championships were kept vacant until a correctly constituted annual meeting can be held.

Next Steps
As I stated at the meeting, Skate Australia Board will appoint an Independent Chair. The Board has appointed Board member, Vivian Thelander, as the interim Independent non-voting Chair. The role of the Independent Chair is to review and establish clear ongoing governance processes for the ILHA NEC (Click here for the role statement). Vivian is an experienced executive with good knowledge of corporate governance practices. It is important to note this position is NOT the same as the ILHA Branch Chair.

With the ILHA Branch Chair position vacant, David Roberts, as Deputy Chair, will take the role of Acting Chair until the Annual Meeting is held.
Also under the Constitution 25.4, to ensure there is a quorum of 4, the Board directed the remaining NEC to nominate to fill a casual vacancy until the Annual Meeting. The NEC nominated Corey Smith from South Australia, which was accepted.

ILHA National Executive Committee (NEC) are as follows:
Acting Chair and Deputy Chair – David Roberts
Executive Member – Kerry Scanlan
A/Executive Member – Corey Smith
Chair of Coaches – Duane Voss

The Board has approved an amended Bylaw 20
With many people likely to be away during the months of December and January, the Board has decided it would be appropriate to hold the ILHA Annual Meeting in February 2014 to coincide with ILHA’s semi-annual meeting.

The new NEC has commenced planning the annual calendar for 2014 and upcoming international tours. In addition, the new NEC will be broadening its focus beyond high performance to include grassroots development, working with all States, players representation, and developing a strategic plan. Over the next few weeks, role descriptions will be developed for the vacant positions which will be encouraging nominations from candidates who bring more than a passion for inline hockey to the NEC, but also sports administration skills and experience, business acumen and leadership, an ability to work cooperatively with everyone to bring people along, and negotiation skills to achieve mutual benefit. If you have these skills, I urge you to keep your eye out over the next few weeks.
