at Mentone Hockey Club



The Mentone Hockey Club is pleased to offer  Hookin2Hockey, the national junior development program designed by Hockey Australia.

Hookin2Hockey is designed for boys and girls aged 5 to 11, but our experienced club has adapted the program to suit players of any age.

Hookin2Hockey at Mentone Hockey Club gives young boys and girls the opportunity to learn the basic skills of hockey, develop fundamental motor skills and make friends and have funall while beginning their lifelong love of hockey.

Hookin2Hockey has been separated into a pathway of three stages, developed to help participants grow through their hockey journey.

This is the first experience most children will have with hockey. It is an action packed, fun filled one-hour session that will show participants how exciting hockey can be through a number of simple, yet engaging games.

The games involved are not limited at all by age – children or adults will be able to find enjoyment and challenge as they develop their ability to play the game, work as a team, and make new friends through hockey

Equipment is available at the club to use for your come and try session. No need to book, just show up on the day.


We believe that Hookin2Hockey Skills in Action will introduce new players to a game that provides fun, friendship, and a lifelong love of an iconic Olympic sport, in a club/association based environment.

The six-week program will teach participants the basic skills giving them the opportunity to not only fall in love with our game, but providing them with a dream that one day they can represent Australia, whose teams are among the world’s best, at the highest level, the Olympic Games, or that they find a sport they can enjoy for the rest of their live.

Why Mentone Hockey Club?

Mentone Hockey Club is well established at delivering Hookin2Hockey, having offered it over a number of years, providing over 350 kids a peek at the game. In recent years we have a participated in local intra club round robin style competition with neighbouring clubs, allowing our kids to experience competition at a low level, before kids opt into the Hockey Victoria competitions at U8 & U10. Our Hookin2Hockey sessions provides children aged 5 to 11 with the opportunity to learn the basic skills of hockey and game play, building their confidence to join the game.

Note – Children aged 12-18,  will be introduced  directly into the junior  pre-season development programs.

A core principle of our program is 1  coach per 10 participants – to best ensure a quality experience.
