A proud history… and a bright future

Our Men’s section has a long and rich history, with origins dating back to the early 1900s. For more than 100 years, we’ve been fielding men’s teams in Melbourne’s preeminent hockey leagues, amassing numerous titles and much success as a community club along the way.

Fast forward to today, our Men’s section at the newly rebadged Yarra Hockey Club remains committed to continuing this legacy. Comprising a mix of experienced club stalwarts, talented youth and overseas players, our Men’s section continues to offer teams for all levels of skill and interest – from high-level Vic League competitions, through to beginner and social hockey, and everything in between. We also have a separate and long-standing Master’s section at Yarra.

Our Men’s section welcomes players of all backgrounds, ages and abilities who share our passion for hockey. Whether you’re an experienced hockey player looking for a new challenge, or a new player keen to try the game for the first time, we have a team for you. Rest assured, you’ll be backed by an experienced coaching cohort at Yarra that are focused on development and a strong team ethos. You’ll also be joining a supportive and welcoming community at Yarra, which has revamped facilities and a renewed purpose to “enrich the lives of our community on and off the hockey field”.
