Hockey clubs may have to wait a little longer to know the final configuration of the 2020 season.
Rosters for Hockey Tasmania's competitions were expected to be confirmed later this week, but the process has been slowed by the North of the state.
The delay has been caused by the wait for final team nominations from the Greater Northern League clubs, with the final confirmation required by the competition convener by close of business on Thursday.
Draft rosters have been created for the GNL season and submitted for approval by Hockey Tasmania chief executive, but they were subject to change if clubs were unable to field as many teams as expected.

Southern clubs had the benefit of starting their season before the COVID-19 shutdown so they had a greater understanding of their registration numbers for this year.
The GNL clubs are scheduled to meet with Smith on Friday to go through the finer details of the competition following the final confirmations were received.
In the preparation for the season to go ahead, Hockey Tasmania announced last week it would be making changes to the cost of registration across the board to reduce financial stress.
All junior registration fees have been waived, while senior registrations will be charged at the half season flexi rate only, regardless of number of games played.
The Stick2Hockey fee for juniors has also been waived.
