The Hockeyroos are one of Australia's most successful national women's sports teams.

Renowned for a golden generation through the 1990s and early 2000s, the Hockeyroos dominated world hockey during this period.

They won back-to-back gold medals at the 1996 and 2000 Olympic Games and the 1994 and 1998 World Cups as well as five consecutive Champions Trophy titles.

Since 2012 the Hockeyroos have remained among the world's best, regularly challenging for podium places at major events.

"The Hockeyroos are an iconic Australian sporting team, a real success story"

Lead the way for greater inclusion at your club

The Inclusive Hookin2Hockey handbook created by Hockey Australia in conjunction with APM, can be used by clubs, coaches, administrators and the community, to assist in delivering fun, safe and inclusive hockey sessions.

Championing diversity and inclusion can:

  • Enhance your club’s brand and reputation
  • Increase membership
  • Increase pathway and participation opportunities
  • Increase sponsorship opportunities
  • Increase your volunteer base
  • Provide a better connected and more diverse hockey community
  • Break down barriers and promote social inclusion

Partnering to drive community inclusion

APM have signed a 3-year partnership with Hockey Australia as a sponsor of the national women's and men's teams.

Along with becoming the Hockeyroos Major Partner, Official Partner of the Kookaburras, they will be Hockey Australia’s Exclusive Category Partner - Disability Service Provider.

The partnership will see an increase in all-ability hockey sessions, particularly pre-international hockey matches in Australia, along with fast-tracking Hockey Australia’s inclusive hockey program footprint.

"Sport inspires and brings people together as participants and supporters, the Hockeyroos through their success and player engagement within the community play an important role in supporting inclusion.”

Supporting success

“APM is making a positive impact to many people in Australia and around the world and are about inspiring excellence and empowering people to realise their ambitions and aspirations" said Hockey Australia CEO David Pryles.

“APM’s commitment and support of our national teams will substantially contribute to the Hockeyroos and Kookaburras’ continual mission of becoming the world’s best hockey teams.”

APM are proud supporters of the medal-winning successes – for both the Hockeyroos and Kookaburras – at the FIH Hockey World Cup and the Birmingham Commonwealth Games.
