The senior men and women teams are scheduled to take part in the Central-South Africa tournament.
The Under-21s have the Junior Hockey World Cup qualifiers coming up.
“We have no events planned for the remainder of 2020, due to the implications and effects, which Covid-19 has had to date.
“Africa Hockey has also rescheduled all events to next year.
“Main focus is on our national ladies and men’s squads, as well as our Under-21 squads.
“Harare Hockey Board will also not be resuming their league this year,” said HAZ secretary-general Sarah Bennett.
She confirmed they were given the go-ahead for resumption.
The Under-21 men and women team coaches, Fidelis Majuba and Tendayi Maredza have been desperate to get group training underway.
