Our Club

Sutherland District Hockey Club was first formed in 1965  as Sutherland District Men’s Hockey Club before expanding its membership base to also include senior and junior women players in 1980.

Based at Hockey Park, Sylvania, Sutherland Hockey Club facilities which include a clubhouse and a synthetic surface are among the best on offer in Sydney.

Sutherland is one of the largest hockey clubs in Sydney with our senior men, women and junior teams competing in the best competitions across Sydney. Being the largest junior club in Sydney and NSW we offer a very extensive junior hockey program overseen by experienced coaches including a Junior Hockey Academy and Minkey Hockey (Ages 5 to 9).

Our club prides itself on promoting, growing and developing hockey and a big part of this is our successful modified summer competition which run each year in Term 4 which involves over 500 kids from local primary and high schools. This competition was first introduced in 1983 and is now in its 32nd year of running.

Over the years our mens, womens and junior  teams have had great success winning numerous premierships and our club is proud to say that we  have had a long list of players who have achieve state or national selection. Sutherland players who have gone on to represent Australia are: Dennis Lisk, Peter Huk, Des King, Garry Jennison, Peter Shea, Michael York, Adam Commens,, Kieran Govers and Kate Hollywood.
