Geelong Hockey Association Life Members

The Geelong Hockey Association was officially formed in 1989 by a merger between the three organisations which until that point had operated separately to conduct hockey in Geelong.

  • Geelong Junior Hockey Association
  • Geelong and District Men’s Hockey Association
  • Geelong Women’s Hockey Association

At that time, Life Membership of the newly formed Association was awarded to those who had received Life Membership awards for the three previous organisations.

The Geelong Hockey Association is fortunate to have great support from members, past and present, who volunteer their time and enthusiastically contribute to the conduct of hockey in the Geelong region.

We are delighted to recognise the following individuals for their contributions.
