The NSWIS Hockey Program works in partnership with Hockey Australia and Hockey NSW to collectively develop pathway athletes to ensure that hockey remains the benchmark Australian team sport.

The program delivers a leading national development training environment providing world class coaching and services to hockey players.

The program consists of men’s and women’s components that are led by Olympic gold medallists Katrina Powell and Brent Livermore. Powell, rated among Australia’s most impressive attackers during her career, competed at three Olympic Games winning successive gold medals with the Hockeyroos in 1996 and 2000.

Equally impressive Livermore played over 290 games for the Kookaburras and won two medals for Australia in men’s hockey: bronze in 2000 and gold in 2004.
