School & Club Allocations

Hockey ACT have made it easy for primary school students to transition into  hockey and find a team within a Hockey ACT affiliated Club. Each school within the ACT region has been linked (as a guide) to particular clubs to ease transition into our local competition and provide a useful and easy way for primary school aged children to locate a club near their home and school.
