West Gippsland Hockey Association is a sporting organisation that is responsible for the development and governance of 5 playing groups at Bellbird Park, Drouin.
The regional playing groups are Aztecs, Drouids, Gulls, and Warriors, with each playing group catering for all ages from mixed juniors (Under 12, 15 & 18) through to men’s and women’s competitions.
All games in our regional competition are played on our synthetic pitch at Bellbird Park, Drouin.
The Gippsland Strikers are our Metropolitan teams that cater for some junior, senior and masters players, and participate in the Melbourne Metropolitan Hockey Competition, organised by Hockey Victoria.
West Gippsland Hockey Association’s main aim is for all players to have fun in a supportive environment and to have the opportunity to develop their hockey skills and participate in competitive and friendly competitions.
As part of our vision we also undertake to assist in the development and support of additional programs that incorporate all aspects of the game, such as state and country tournaments, as well as umpiring and coaching skills.
Hockey is a unique family sport which can be played by people from all walks of life, age and skill level.
The player groups have access to a high quality hybrid synthetic pitch, with competition standard lighting, enabling both daytime and evening competition and training.
Hockey continues over the summer months till December. However, hockey can continue nearly all year round for those wanting more. There are options such as Hookin2Hockey for the younger players & summer hockey for older juniors and adults.
There are also opportunities to play in Junior Country Championships and Junior State Championships in addition to opportunities for Senior Country Weekends.
Some of our players have been selected to play in Victorian State Teams in their age group.
We welcome you to come and be part of a truly family-friendly environment, a safe and fun way to participate in a sport, whether it is as player, official or supporter….
