Sutherland Hockey Club Junior Academy

Welcome to Sutherland Hockey Club Junior Academy Page.

The Sutherland Hockey Club junior academy is a partnership between Sutherland Hockey club and our academy families and is run by the club using our own top level experienced coaches headed up by Sydney Hockey premier league premiership winning coach and 2011 Sydney Hockey Coach of the year and former NSW AHL and Premier League player Peter Tait who is a AHA Level 2 certified coach  along with our top senior men and women players who all have representative honours. The academy’s aim is to strengthen our most promising juniors and provide high level attention to our players with a high coach to player ratio designed to build our juniors skills to the next level. We also see our academy as a way to build stronger club spirit and connect our junior and senior players in the club with the long term being to filter the players into our senior men and womens teams. In 2015, we saw many of our players make Sydney South Representative teams and we have had 2 players selected in the U15’s NSW State teams, 2 players in U13 State Teams and 3 players picked in 2016 U15 NSW State Squads, 1 player in U18 NSW State Squad. We have also run a specialised 6 week skills program for our U11 and U13B players.

In 2016, we will look to build upon our successes in 2015.

In 2016, the junior academy will run for U11s, U13s, and U15s every Tuesday in term 1, 2 and 3. For information on the academy please email
