WARRNAMBOOL and District Hockey Association is open to different options when its stalled season emerges from Victoria's fifth coronavirus lockdown.
The competition, which includes junior and senior competitions, had played three rounds before restrictions forced players to the sidelines last week.
A seven-day extension to the initial five-day lockdown, which was to end at midnight on Tuesday, means community sport will be impacted again this weekend.

"There's been a few ideas floated around like possibly doing a round-robin weekend for the games we've missed with shortened games," she said.
"(We could) possibly extend the season but then we clash and can lose players to summer competitions.
"The first three weekends in September are supposed to be our finals this year. There is another option of ditching finals and just playing games."
Stevenson said a best-case scenario was play would resume on Friday, July 30 with junior matches.
"I am going by the last couple of times we've come out of lockdown - the juniors have been able to start but not the seniors," she said.
"The seniors have been a week or two later. It just depends on how everything rolls in that regard."
Stevenson said the pandemic, which wiped out its 2020 season, had ongoing impacts on playing numbers.
"The men's comp has dropped one team but the women's comp actually grew a team," she said.
"In that respect (senior) numbers are roughly the same but the junior competition is down but that is to be expected. Junior competitions across the board in most sport numbers are down.
"Parents are making a kid chose a sport these days and (they're) not choosing a multitude of sports. And people enjoyed their time of last year and some of them have gone 'I don't need to go back'."
Other sports football, netball, basketball and soccer are sidelined too.
Hampden league released a statement, saying it hoped to provide its stakeholders with clarity soon.
"The HFNL executive are meeting with member clubs and relevant stakeholders this week to discuss fixture," it read.
"We will provide updates following these respective meetings when we can.
"This is a difficult time for everyone; we ask that the entire HFNL community continue to support each other and we look forward to seeing football and netball resume when it is safe to do so."
Warrnambool and District league will also miss a second consecutive round of football and netball competitions, as will Ballarat and District Soccer Association club Warrnambool Rangers.
Big V basketball sides Warrnambool Seahawks and Warrnambool Mermaids are also playing the waiting game as is South West Victoria Football Association which has had to press pause on its soccer season.
