Weekly secondary school hockey competitions are organised by Waikato Hockey and the Thames Valley Hockey Association.  Please see the contacts below for more information

Eligibility Criteria

Please be aware for 1st XI hockey teams, that there is a quota of students who are new to school that are permitted to play in the team.  This applies to all national competitions and any qualifiers for these competitions.  It also includes the Waikato 1st XI competition as sanctioned by the Central North Island Secondary School Principals Association

The NZSSSC ruling states that for a school team to be eligible to compete, the team must not exceed the quota of students new to the school in the 2 years preceding the first day of the event.  Teams will be limited to a maximum of two non domestic students (or one for sports with a quota of one) and any non domestic student must always be included in the quota

For Hockey, the quota is 4 new to school students.  Please ensure selectors and teachers in charge of hockey are aware of this ruling when picking their top teams.
