Contact Policy

Auckland Hockey coordinates Hockey for around 100 primary and secondary schools in the Greater Auckland area and 12 clubs and works directly with the sports departments of these schools via College Sport, Teachers in charge of Hockey at schools and Presidents, Secretaries and Junior Coordinators of clubs.

Therefore, if you are a coach, manager, parent, or student athlete we ask that in the first instance, you direct any queries to your school’s sports department or Club contact. With around 150 contact points, and over 10,000 players you will appreciate it is not feasible for our limited staff to handle queries from coaches, managers, parents, and students. Thank you in advance for adhering to our contact policy.
