What is Hockey Victoria’s Schools Roadshow?
The Schools Roadshow is Hockey Victoria’s annual recruitment drive, run in primary schools throughout Victoria. The majority of the Roadshow is conducted in Term 1 each year in schools close to a Hookin2Hockey centre. Hockey Victoria staff and coaches, with assistance from local representatives, conduct free 40min – 1hr introductory clinics, which teach the basics of hockey in a fun and safe game based environment. All equipment is provided by Hockey Victoria. Students are then invited to attend their local Hookin2Hockey centre to continue their participation in Hockey.
