The upgrade of the new Technical area, player dugouts along with the replacement of our outdated scoreboard, would assist our club to be back to having the best hockey club facilities in Victoria.
Importantly the technical area will provide a much safer facility for players and officials.
The digital scoreboard will allow the club to create sponsors images or videos, replays or club event information.
1. Digital Scoreboard - Estimated Cost $80K
Benefits (establishing DHC as a hockey club of first choice with premier facilities for all stakeholders):
2. Technical Bench and New Player dugouts- $50K
A key aspect of the project design is the safety of the officials and players. During team warm ups and general play, the chances of hockey balls being deflected into the tech bench is significant. The design of the technical area will have a Perspex safety glass front that will not only prevent stray balls, but protect electronic equipment from poor weather conditions.
In addition, the technical area will be installed at the opposite side of the field, away from the spectators and potential crowd banters.
