Selection of a site in the Goulburn Mulwaree area for a new hockey complex will be crucial to the future of the sport in the southern area.
One of the sites to be looked at is on council land near the Carr Confoy sporting grounds at East Goulburn.
The question has arisen about the possible effects of flooding in that area.
Goulburn Mulwaree general manger, Warrick Bennett says the effect of flooding would be disastrous on the quality of fields which are being envisaged.
He says expensive water fields are being looked at and flood waters over these would wreck them.
It will be necessary to apply for funding for the ambitious project and Mr Bennett says that will be two to three years away at least.
