HA and HAMC encourage everyone who has an interest in masters hockey including existing HAMC, Operational Committee Members and MA Masters Delegates to consider the voluntary positions vacant and nominate by the due date.  

Hockey Australia Masters Committee is tasked by Hockey Australia to deliver One Masters hockey opportunities for players to be involved in community to elite level competitions for players aged 34+ across Australia and at World Masters level. One Masters also provides officiating opportunities for Umpires and Technical Officials. The officiating pathways include interstate and overseas travel for those who are appropriately skilled and qualified.

Seeds for change:
In its 12 monthly review, HAMC identified that structural change can be made to reduce duplication and streamline the masters workload by creating pillar groups that reflect the business of HAMC. The groups that will replace the Men’s and Women’s Operational Groups while maintaining a gender balance will be:

  • Events & Officiating Pillar Group
  • National Teams Pillar Group
  • Growth & Participation Pillar Group

Importantly, the Growth & Participation Pillar Group will seek collaboration from HA Member Association (MA) (State/Territory) Masters Delegates as future working groups are established.
