Hockey - Men's

The VIS men’s hockey program aims to provide a world class daily training environment that enables athletes to continually improve and gain selection in Australia senior and junior development squads.

The VIS men’s hockey program consists of Victorian based players who have been identified as elite level.  Ages range from 17 to open age and all athletes are primarily drawn from Victorian representative teams including the Victorian Vikings (AHL), U21 and U18 teams. When the athletes are not engaged in Victorian team preparation or competition, the VIS program has small group training focusing on both individual and team skills.

The program is designed to provide an environment that is challenging, innovative and supportive to enable all athletes to develop the latest skills, trends and match tactics in world hockey. The ultimate goal of the program and players is to have the essential skill set to be selected in National Squads.

Although VIS athletes do not compete together as a team, the majority of them play for the Victorian Vikings in the Australian Hockey League, as well as in underage State teams and National squads at various age levels.
