Just Hockey Helping to Put Hockey in South Australian Schools

Hockey SA are grateful for the sponsorship support that Just Hockey provide which leverages our participation outreach and promotional activities. 

Under the sponsorship arrangements, Just Hockey have recently provided Hockey SA with three new school kits which now gives us a total of seven school kits, meaning Hockey SA coaches are able to get out in to as many as seven different schools and programs at the same time.

Each schools kit now includes enough hockey sticks, balls, bibs and cones for a full class to be part of a hockey session. 

In addition to the schools kits, Just Hockey have provided Hockey SA with additional balls to use with state teams and athlete development programs.

Earlier this term, Mazon branded sticks and school kits from Just Hockey were used in school outreach programs at:

  • Adelaide Hills – Aldgate Primary, Crafers Primary, Meadows Primary and Mount Barker South Primary
  • North East – Dernancourt Primary, Golden Grove Primary, Greenwith Primary, Ingle Farm East Primary, Modbury South Primary, St Agnes Primary and Tea Tree Gully Primary
  • Woodville area – Brompton Primary, Hendon Primary, Seaton Park Primary and St Patrick's Mansfield Park
  • Clare Valley – Auburn Primary, Brinkworth Primary, Burra Community School, Clare Primary, Manoora Primary, Saddleworth Primary and Watervale Primary

Each of these metropolitan clubs and the Clare District Hockey Association are now running Hookin2Hockey programs with children attending who were first exposed to hockey in the schools outreach.

For term 2, Hockey SA will target other geographic areas with schools outreach ahead of club/association run Hookin2Hockey programs. Planning is presently underway to target areas surrounding Burnside, Forestville, Port Pirie, Yorke Peninsula and the State Hockey Centre.
