Come and Play Hockey

Play Hockey With A Family Friendly Club

Newtown City Hockey Club is the largest hockey club in Victoria outside the Melbourne Metropolitan area. With over 350 members and 20 teams, the Club offers the opportunity for people to play hockey at whatever level they choose.

New Members Are Welcome

The Club welcomes players of any age, and any level of skill or experience.  New members are welcome at any time of the year, as there are teams playing in both winter and summer seasons.

Winter season games are April to September, and the summer season is October to February. The winter season is the main competition, with the most participants. The summer season provides a more social environment, and this often makes the summer season a good place to try the game out.

Getting Started

If you are new to hockey, or haven’t played for a while, you could start with one of these options:

  • Hookin2Hockey – a Come and Try program for boys and girls aged 5 to 12.
  • Kookas Midweek hockey – a less structured program for boys and girls aged 5 to 12.
  • Saturday Social hockey – a fun opportunity for boys, girls, men and women to play hockey, There is no commitment to be there every week. It’s a great way for families to play together. This program is run only during the winter season.
  • Summer hockey programs – includes Mixed Masters (over 35) and Friday Family competitions – both good places for less experienced adults to play hockey.
  • Join a team training session –  join one of the regular training sessions for the various teams.

New members are welcome to try one of these first, before deciding whether to join the Club.

Stick2Hockey – Come and Play

Stick2Hockey

Hockey is a great sport for the whole family, and Hookin2Hockey and Stick2Hockey programs are an excellent way to make new friends and to start a lifelong love of hockey.

The Stick2Hockey program aims to provide a bridge between Hookin2Hockey and participation in one of the Newtown Hockey Club teams which compete in the Hockey Geelong competitions. The program is suitable for children who may have learnt some hockey skills but are still learning the strategies of the game and developing skills.

The 8 week Stick2Hockey program is open to boys or girls aged 5 to 12, providing an opportunity to play hockey games, and continue developing skills and learning game strategies. The program is flexible and relaxed, with the main emphasis on having fun and continuing to develop skills. Modified game formats are used to foster teamwork and develop confidence for the participants. Games are played on a smaller field, with 5 to 7 players per team, so everyone is involved. There is no formal competition, but players will be grouped into teams to play games and learn further skills. Bring a friend and double the fun.

It is not compulsory to participate in a Hookin2Hockey program before joining the Stick2Hockey games.

Uniform is not required, but may be purchased through the club if desired. Equipment (stick and ball) is available for loan to participants if required. Each child should have a mouthguard and a pair of shinguards.

At the end of the program, players may choose to progress to one of the club competition teams, or return for a further Stick2Hockey program.

Fees include:

Stick2Hockey program fee – $30 – includes a free pair of Newtown Hockey Club socks

We still have space in most teams for more players, so if you have a friend who may be interested, invite them to join us.

We are also in need of umpires for all nights (Monday to Friday). Let Claire know if you can help. 0417 015130

#HaveAGo at Hockey

The Australian Olympic Committee #HaveAGo campaign encourages people to play a sport at the grassroots level, and develop new passions, friendships and new skills.

The early finish to the 2021 winter hockey season and the ongoing COVID restrictions give us a slightly longer break than normal between the end of the winter season and the start of the summer season. But this gives us a great opportunity to encourage others to #HaveaGo at Hockey.

The summer hockey season will begin on November 8 (COVID permitting), with teams available for players of all ages, all genders and all levels of experience (recent or otherwise). Games are midweek, so you can combine having a go at hockey with continuing to play your normal weekend summer sport.

With costs to play even lower than usual, relaxed uniform rules and a social atmosphere for the games, summer is a great time to #HaveAGo at hockey. Check the details here.

Boys and girls aged 5 to 12 can also #HaveAGo by joining a Hookin2Hockey program to learn the basic skills of hockey and strategies of the game. This is a great way to develop confidence and to make new friends.  The next program will begin on Thursday October 14, 4.30 pm at Lloyd Reserve, Windsor Rd, Newtown (opposite Balyang Sanctuary).

Summer hockey is also a great time to start a journey as a team coach or umpire, and we are always looking for help in these areas.

We are happy to welcome new members at any time of the year, and now is the ideal time to find out more and try out the game. Why not give us a call. Round up your friends to come along too.
