Representative Hockey:

There are three national representative leagues, U15, U18 and Women’s (NZWIHL). This is an extension of our junior program in Auckland and players are expected to make a commitment to the squad. All teams will travel around the country to play against each other.

Four teams compete in this league, Queenstown, Dunedin, Canterbury and Auckland. Auckland representatives are selected by coaches from the local club competition. The team is coached for a large part of the season before competition which generally takes part during the mid to end of the season. Members of playing away teams are billeted by the home team players except during the finals weekend when teams stay together in prearranged accommodation. Girls are eligible to compete in this league.

Three teams compete in this league, Southern, Canterbury and Auckland. Auckland representatives are selected by coaches from the local club competition. The team is coached for a large part of the season ahead of competition which generally takes part towards the end of the season. There is no billeting in this league with players staying in pre arranged accommodation. Girls are not eligible to compete in this league except as goalies.

Three teams compete in the Women’s league throughout New Zealand – Auckland, Dunedin and Canterbury.

The team practices, which are open to all females who are interested, are not held for a large part of the regular season. The practices start around the second half of October and go through until the finals weekend, and ultimately depend on the timing of the playing season.

The minimum age to play in this league is 13 years old.
