Manning Hockey Association president Debbie Monck remains cautiously optimistic the season will start on April 6 as planned.
This is despite damage to the hockey centre at Taree Recreation Centre caused by Saturday's wild storm.
Ms Monck said fencing at the carpark end of the Allan Taylor Field (ATF) is the main concern.
She said this was badly bent by powerful winds and the association is awaiting word from MidCoast Council as to how to best repair the damage.
"I don't think there's much likelihood of it falling over and we might be able to reinforce it, but we'll be guided by council here,'' Ms Monck said.
She said fencing around the Terry Launders Field (TLF) and the association's new turf field were also damaged but she is confident this will be right by the start of the season.
"The wind picked up a goal post at the TLF like a toy and turned it around 90 degrees and mounted it on a fence,'' she said.
Ms Monck said it would be possible to start the season using just the two turf fields if the ATF is ruled out.
"But so much for a hassle-free start to the season.''
The association's third turf field and the extensions to the clubhouse were opened last year.
The work was carried out following a $780,000 federal government grant secured by the association, along with funds from the hockey association, Greater Taree City and now MidCoast Council and the Manning Valley Cycle Club.
The cycle club now has a permanent headquarters in the hockey clubhouse, enabling it to host major events.
Manning Hockey was among the first regional associations to establish a turf field. This was in 1988 when the Allan Taylor Field was opened.
Meanwhile Manning Hockey will host the NSW under 18 women's championships in May.
