Campaign (National Hockey Championship)

The National Hockey Championship is a tiered tournament. Tier 1 will have 8 male and 8 female association teams playing for the National Championship. Tier 2 will have the remaining associations and B teams for the bigger associations. Waikato will have a men’s and a women’s team compete in Tier 1 and is aiming to have a men’s and a women’s team play in tier 2 as well.

The teams in Tier 1 are proudly sponsored by THL and will be referred to as the THL Waikato Senior men and women.

Waikato Hockey is looking to send a men’s and women’s Tier 2 team to NHC under the names Waikato Bears and Waikato Wild Cats.

All teams will see their trials on 12, 19, and 26 June 2023.

Registrations for the Senior Performance Trainings and expressions of interest for the National Hockey Championship teams can be done through the below form.

For more information regarding the NHC teams you can contact Reiner Vellinga via reiner@waikatohockey.org.nz
