Australian Hockey League
The national level of competition is the Australian Hockey League, which was made from the former Men's and Women's National Hockey League in 1991. It is a small league, with only a single men's team and a single women's team from each of the eight states and territories, but it produces excellent results, when measured by the performance of the national squad.
The Kookaburras, the men's national team have won 1 gold, 3 silver and 3 bronze at the Olympics, as well as 7 World Hockey Cup medals, 4 Commonwealth Games gold medals and 25 Hockey Champions Trophy medals.
The Hockeyroos have won 3 gold Olympic medals in 2000, 1996 and 1988; as well as 4 world cup medals, 2 gold at the Commonwealth games, and 11 champions trophy medals.
