Yarra provides Women the opportunity to play hockey at a variety of levels, catering for the individual skill levels of all players across competitive and social teams.
Our head coach is Matthew Slade and we train on Tuesday and Thursday 7:00pm to 8:30pm at our ground in Bellfield.
We currently compete in the following competitions:
Vic League 1 and Reserves
Underpinning the Premier League, is the VIC Leagues 1, 2 & 3. In 2024, there will be 22 rounds including 4 midweek matches for our Women’s Vic League 1 team. For the Vic League Reserves team, there will be only 18 rounds with no mid week matches. The finals will run over 3 weeks where the top 6 teams will compete in the finals series.
As we are the reigning 2023 Premiers, Yarra will be competing in the 2024 League Cup!
Started in 2023, the League Cup is a pre-season tournament hosted by Hockey Victoria, with the aim of
providing certainty, excitement and competitiveness in scheduled pre-season matches, as clubs look to warm up for the Winter Season. The tournament will be played as a single match elimination knockout format, making each match a must-win, as teams compete for the League Cup, plus the cash prize and bragging rights that comes with it.
The pennant competition is a graded 10 team Home and Away competition over 18 rounds. With Pennant A-F it provides clubs with competitive hockey for all levels of senior players. Top four fight it out for the opportunity for promotion; these grades are played across a mix of Saturdays and Sundays.
The indoor hockey season runs from mid-October to early April, indoor is a fast and skilful game – great fun and a great way to keep fit and develop stick skills.
We strive the live the clubs values (Include | Encourage | Respect | Develop | Celebrate) in all our interactions and are always looking for new players (local and international) of all ages and abilities to join. You can find further details on becoming a Yarra player here and our membership structure here.
As a volunteer based community club we are also always looking for involvement with the womens committee and support with a range of roles, you can find more information on the support roles needed on our volunteer page.
