Hook in 2 Hockey

Hookin2Hockey is designed for boys and girls aged 10 and under, but the skills can be modified to suit players of any age and we often have older participants, particularly in Term 1 each year. Hookin2Hockey gives young boys and girls the opportunity to learn the basic skills of hockey, develop fundamental motor skills and make friends all while beginning their lifelong love of hockey. This program structure has been developed to help participants step through their hockey journey.

We believe that Hookin2Hockey will introduce new players to a game that provides fun, friendship, and a lifelong love of an iconic Olympic sport, in a club/association based environment. The eight-week program will teach participants the basic skills giving them the opportunity to not only fall in love with our game, but providing them with a dream that one day they can represent Australia, whose teams are among the world’s best, at the highest level, the Olympic Games.
