Welcome

The Sydney Masters Hockey Association (SMHA) was established in 1982 to administer Men's Masters hockey within the greater Sydney region.

SMHA has the largest, longest running annual competitions and been the most successful Men's Masters Hockey Association in NSW since its inception. It is overseen by a Board of Directors elected by members (under a Constitution).

The annual competitions now boast 30 teams (from 13 Clubs), spread across 5 divisions from Premier League, Sydney Cup, Masters League, Legends and Grand Legends, with 525 players from Over 34 up to 80.

All matches played at Sydney Olympic Park Hockey Centre (Tuesday and Wednesday nights) between February and September.

Sydney also enters representative teams (from Over 34's up to Over 70's) at the annual NSW Championships, and enjoys a high level of player representation in the selected NSW and Australian Men's Masters teams.

New players

The Sydney Masters Hockey Association welcomes all new Men's Masters players, officials and supporters.

If you are new to Sydney and / or have been a previous hockey player (or umpire) and you are now looking to return to play in a successful mid week competition, please contact the SMHA Competition Manager (competition@smhockey.com.au) if you require assistance in finding a club / team to play with.

Welcome

Welcome again to all our returning players, officials, sponsors and supporters, and also to those of you who are “new” and will be joining the 2022 season of Men’s Masters Hockey in Sydney.

2020 and 2021 were challenging years (due to COVID), with only half  seasons completed - unfortunately no final series in 2021.

We were fortunate to return to hockey in December 2021 with a very successful Intercity Masters Hockey Challenge against Canberra in Canberra. Sydney won the inaugural Merv Goodridge and Doug Dawson Cup - Congratulations to everyone.

On behalf of the Board, we wish all teams good luck and trust that everyone enjoys a successful and full 2022 Sydney Men’s Masters Hockey season, both on and off the field.
