Congratulations to Zac Phillips, our first umpire of the week award recipient. Zac is a keen Terrey Hills player and a new umpire trainee with WHA this year.  Zac did a fantastic job last Saturday helping to identify and mitigate common safety risks down at the WHA hockey fields! Most importantly he pointed out one of the most common hazards down at the WHA fields - kids swinging on the hockey goals. The goals might look perfect for playing on, but they could fall at any time seriously injuring kids swinging on them. Zac and the other officials at WHA would like to remind parents that hockey goals are not play equipment, please don't let you kids swing on them!
