University of Canterbury
Hockey Club

We are one of New Zealand’s oldest volunteer-run hockey clubs,

with nine decades of experience in providing and supporting hockey players from the tertiary institutes of Christchurch.

Our players enjoy the commitment of quality coaching, like-minded peers, socially active club and competitive opportunities for the 2017 and future seasons.
We celebrate success and commitment in a hockey environment that cares for player welfare, meets the learning and working needs of a wide range of players, while recognising the distinct student culture and range of player diversity.
The Club is committed to the provision of competitive, social and safe opportunities for all members. It aims to give all members fair competition, access to involvement, and personal leadership and growth. We endeavour to build the tertiary culture of the Canterbury region through sporting excellence in hockey. Above all we value the enjoyment of the game.
