Hockey Australia[1] is an organisation that formed from the merger of the Australian Hockey Association and Women's Hockey Australia in 2000. It is the national body responsible for the promotion, development and administration of field hockey in Australia. Hockey Australia is a full member of the International Hockey Federation, and comprises the State and Territory associations.

History[edit]

The British Army has been credited with the spread of hockey throughout the world, but in Australia's case, the British Navy deserves the honours. In the late 1800s, Australia did not have a naval fleet of its own and relied upon the Royal Army for the security of the coastline. The British Naval officers stationed in Australia taught the locals the game of hockey and laid the foundations for a sport which Australians have developed and mastered.[2]

National Teams[edit]

Hockey Australia is the governing body that oversees Australia's National Teams.

  • Open National Championships were discontinued after 1994, so for the early years of the AHL there was also a National Championships.
  • From 2010 onwards, Hockey Australia have not played a finals series in the U15 National Championships, so the winners were the teams ranked highest on the ladder after the round-robin competition.
  • The Under 13 National Championship was included as a full National Championship from 2011. Prior to this an invitational event was run and sanctioned by Hockey Australia, but did not hold National Championship status. Similarly to the U15 competition, there is no finals series and the Champion is the team ranked highest on the ladder at the conclusion of the competition.
