We are excited to launch this initative in conjuction with Pacific Island Trust BOP. Our objectives with this programme are as follows:

  • celebrate the various cultures of the Pacific Islands that live within our region and bring them together through hockey;
  • develop the individuals not only as Pasifika hockey players but also in their overall development through interactive workshops;
  • embracing and encouraging our Pasifika athletes with a unique cultural opportunity;
  • develop hockey.

The Tauranga Pasifika Programme will run in Term 1 of 2024, on the following dates: 5.30pm - 7.30pm


  • Sunday 3 March:    2.00pm - 5.00pm
  • Tuesday 5 March:   5.30pm - 7.30pm
  • Tuesday 12 March: 5.30pm - 7.30pm
  • Tuesday 19 March: 5.30pm - 7.30pm
  • Tuesday 26 March: 5.30pm - 7.30pm

Included within the programme will be speakers and workshops.

Hamilton will host the NZ Heritage Hockey Tournament over Easter at which a NZ Pasifika team for both men and women have strongly competed at. A great opportunity to watch our top pasifika athletes in action!

The Pasifka Development Programme is open to from beginner players to experienced, for intermediate and college aged students. We would love to see the community aspect in Pasifika hockey develop so that we see the various ages and stages interactiving and supporting one another.

We will have coaches on site to run the hockey sessions.
