The Hockey Institute commenced at St Monica’s College in 2005 and this year
will be celebrating a decade of achievement. The program openly invites students
of all ages and abilities, and develops them into knowledgeable, skilful and
competent hockey players.
Traditionally the year begins with a number of “Come and Try” sessions where
many students take the opportunity to try their skills at hockey, and decide
whether they wish to be involved in the program. There are no selection trials
to be a part of the program – everyone is welcome. However teams do fill quickly
so you will need to sign up and be committed to your team early in Term 1.
The Hockey Institute has plans to travel and participate in a number of
tournaments and inter-state training camps. The students have the opportunity to
develop their skills further through interaction and competition with varying
schools from around Melbourne and Australia.
Mr Jamie Hodgson was appointed as Director of Hockey for 2015 and he will be
assisted by Mr Sid Bagh (Senior Coach) and Ms Alicia Xerri (Fitness Coach).
Training will continue to be held on Monday and Wednesday afternoons on the
DRC Multi-Sports fields from 3:30-4:30pm.
All upcoming events and fixtures can be found on the Hockey Calendar on the
