Players have lots of different options for indoor: Hockey Victoria Competition, Hockey Equipe Competition and Club Championships.
Indoor hockey is an exciting and fun game to watch and play. The team consists of six players on the court – five field players and one goalie, with the speed of the game, there is generally a lot of substitutions that take place, we generally like to have 9 or 10 players in the team.

How have our indoor teams played over the years. See here.
Are you interested? What to do?
All competition costs are borne by players. Costs are spread around the players. All players must be registered with Hockey Victoria. If you are interested in indoor under 18 or younger, please fill in form here Any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org
This does not guarantee a place in the team or competition. If you know you are unavailable up front for some games can you please let us know so we can plan team numbers around this.
Once teams have been decided players will register and pay their registration fee online. If teams need to forfeit a match, the forfeit cost will be spread across the team members in an additional fee. In addition to the registration fee, for hockey Victoria competitions players will share the additional cost of umpire fees. This generally works out to $20/player. The estimates below include the HV umpiring fees estimate.

Hockey Victoria will be running club championships for boys and girls (separately). Under 18 Club championships will play with 5 maximum on the court (including goalie) while Open, Under 15 and 13 will play with FIH rules of 6.

This competition is a longer competition and starts week of 10th Oct, closes over school summer holidays and finishes end February. This competition is a great competition for “non shield” players. A great environment for spectators and players. This competition ran for the first time last year, and was enjoyed by all.
