What is the Canberra Regional Hockey Program?

The Canberra Regional Hockey Program (Regionals) is a development program delivered by Hockey ACT, available to all junior players who are registered and play only within the Hockey ACT competition (this includes Queanbeyan, Sutton, and Albury areas. Goulburn players would be expected to play for Goulburn at a Regional level). Regionals occupy an important place in the Hockey ACT Player Pathway, providing a meaningful link between club hockey and representative hockey.Upon trialling, successful participants will play for Canberra against teams from Regional NSW at the June Long Weekend Carnival (National Hockey Centre, Lyneham ACT) and NSW State Championships (various locations across NSW). Regionals is a fantastic opportunity for junior players to develop their skills, travel interstate and participate in NSW state carnivals, work with a great team of coaches and represent their home town!
There are also great development opportunities for those wanting to coach, manage a team or develop their sport administration experiences in the Canberra Regional Hockey Program.

The program fee will only cover expenses related to registration of teams, insurance, training allocations and volunteer honorariums. Players will be invoiced the program fee, and it must be paid in full by the due date, which will be provided in a timely manner prior to trials.
