Australian Schoolboys Hockey Championships
The Australian Schoolboys Hockey Championships commenced in 1978 hosted in Sydney by NSWCHS. The 25th championships will be held in Canberra in 2002.
These championships are an integral part of the junior hockey program in Australia and for many years many leading Australian players have participated in them with distinction.
Players who are currently involved at the elite level of participation include Michael Brennan, Matthew Smith, and Adam Commens.
The tradition that has been developed by these championships has proven to be a factor in the continuing success of the national Men's' Hockey Team.

Secondary Girls Hockey
School Sport Australia, the governing body of School Sport in Australia, conducts Annual Championships in many sports.
In 1973, thanks to the foresight of Sandra Sheedy (a past National Secretary, and Secretary of the Victorian Secondary Schools Sports Association), the Schoolgirls National Netball Championship (which had been held since 1928) was combined with Schoolgirls Hockey to be called the U/16 Hockey/Netball Championships.
Mr, Theo Leonard who was then the Secretary of the Victorian Metropolitan Secondary School Sports Association (a position he held for 35 years) decided to show his support for this new combined girls championship by donating a trophy suitable called The Theo E. Leonard Trophy.
This Championship over the years developed into a unique culmination for school Netball and Hockey and portraits the finest qualities of both sports.
IN 1990 both sports went their separate ways and although it was disappointing to see the tradition of the combined championships disappear, it was also obvious that the time had come for both sports to stand alone and develop their particular uniqueness.
Women's Hockey Australia continued to strengthen its ties with ASSC and in particular with our Schoolgirls Association. The continued development of girls hockey is a common link between schools, their State Association and the National Body.
2001 saw the amalgamation of both the men's and women's associations at National level - with the new name of Hockey Australia. This move, will no doubt have some impact upon both the boys and girls Schools Championships, however, it seems certain that any changes will be minimal and we trust will benefit even more our Schools Events.
