The goal of this club is to foster hockey as a successful and vibrant College sport, to assist the players to develop their hockey skills, and to keep all players and parents/caregivers informed of key dates and events as the season progresses.
Wellington College has a strong hockey tradition with considerable success in the local competitions, where we usually field 5 or 6 teams, and a large number of our boys representing Wellington in representative teams.
Two of our senior players Matt Crawford and Aryan Vallabh reached the milestone of 100 games for the 1s XI this year. Matt went on to win the CSW Hockey Player of the Year for 2023.
The 1st XI attend Rankin Cup/India Shield (2 - 6 September in Tauranga) during winter tournament week, while the 2nd XI attend the Galletly Cup tournament (2 - 7 September in Cromwell). We also select an U15 fixture team to contest the local Miskimmin Cup, and the traditionals against Palmerston North Boys' High School and New Plymouth Boys High School.
All 1st XI uniform is supplied.
The 2nd XI have two team sets of numbered shirts (one black, one yellow), as they also attend a Hockey NZ tournament.
All other teams need to buy the WC Hockey shirts - these are not required to be numbered as Wellington Hockey only require Premier 1 teams to wear numbered shirts.
All teams from the 2nd XI down also need to to buy black PE shorts, and black socks with gold bands.
