Hockey Australia is thrilled to offer its Sporting Schools program to children across Australia’s school yards.
Hockey Australia is pleased to partner with the Australian Sports Commission (ASC) to deliver this $200 million Australian Government initiative to get more children playing more sport.
Hockey truly is a sport for anyone. It is played by men and women, boys and girls from the age of five through to people in their 80s. There are programs, variations and levels of competition for every age and ability so whether you’re looking for something for your children to play, or you want to take up a new sport, hockey is the answer.
As the national sporting organisation (NSO) for Hockey, we offer schools and coaches quality programs that encourage children to participate in this great sport.
[Hookin2Hockey] "was a great opportunity for the teachers to step back and see how the students behaved and worked with each other one on one while the instructors took the sessions” East Preston Islamic College’s PE and Health Coordinator, Erin Wyatt.

TEACHERS AND COACHES ARE OUR ASSETS
Hockey Australia values the role of teachers not just in the classroom but in the school yard as well. Their enthusiasm for improving children’s lives is often understated. Society places its trust and confidence in teachers who as educators, have one of the most important roles for our children, outside of parents and carers.
Coaches are also a wonderful influence on children throughout their formative years. Coaches are the people who deliver the skills with fun and enjoyment.
The information below is a guide to how schools, coaches and sporting organisations can deliver the Hockey Australia program within Sporting Schools.
