About

Welcome to the MHSOB Hockey Club web site!

MHSOBHC is an enthusiastic, friendly, medium-sized Club, comprising a mixture of young families, professionals and students. Our qualified coaches cater to every level of experience and ability. All grades of Women, Men, Veterans, and Juniors train and socialise together, and share a single cohesive Club administration.

In the 2019 Season, the MHSOB Hockey Club will compete in:

  • Women's Vic League 1 & Reserves supported by one Metropolitan A team.

  •  Mens Vic League 2 & Reserves supported by one Pennant E team, one Metropolitan A team and one Metropolitan B team. 

  • Veterans B grade, Veterans' E grade

  • Under 10 Junior teams

  • Hook-in2-Hockey for beginners aged 5-12 years

Home games for all teams are played at the School (Mel: 58E2) on the Ron Seaman synthetic turf in South Yarra; one of the premier hybrid hockey pitches in Victoria, below the MHS/MCC Hockey Pavilion. Training sessions are held at the ground every Tuesday and Thursday evening during the Winter hockey season, from April to September. Men's and Women's matches are fixtured any time between 11 am and 8 pm on Saturdays and Sundays, while Juniors play on Friday nights or Saturday mornings.

Over the Summer Off-season, MHSOBHC enters teams in both Indoor and Outdoor competitions catering for Men, Women, Juniors and Veterans. We are always looking to welcome new players of all standards and abilities at any time of the year. Please shoot through an email or give us a phone call (contact us) and we'll be happy to get your hockey fix sorted!

Parking at the MHS Hockey Ground

There is very limited onsite parking at MHS. This is particularly so during peak periods (such as Saturday mornings and around training change over times). 

There is parking available in Vogue Plaza immediately across the road from the ground for $3 on weekends and during the week. Parking is free if you shop at the centre (Woolworths/Big W).

Booking the MHS Hockey Ground

If you would like to use any of the facilities at MHS (Hockey Field, Netball Courts, Synthetic Courts, Swimming Pool, Indoor Stadium, Gym etc.) please contact South Yarra Sports.

Ground Care

We all play most of our hockey on the MHS ground. To keep it in the best condition, there are a few things we need to be aware of:

Footwear

There are some sports shoes that can damage the ground. Typically, these are shoes with blades for grip. If you are about to buy a new pair of hockey shoes, please check to make sure they are allowed on the ground. There are signs around the ground that describe which shoes are banned from the ground.

Traffic

The less traffic on the ground, the longer it'll last & the better it will play. Therefore only foot traffic is allowed on the ground - i.e. no bicycles, scooters, segways etc... Bicycles are not permitted to be parked on the ground.

Safety

We all want a safe ground, so ensure gates stay closed to catch stray balls. Also, children should not be inside the fenced area of the ground during a game, or during practice.

Litter

Ensure all litter is either put in a bin, or taken from the ground. The bins at MHS are mixed, so you can happily throw your bottles & cans in with the rest of the junk. MHS pay someone to take the rubbish away & sort it off site (sounds like a great job!).

The club song is sung to the tune of "La Marseillaise (Brisbane Lions theme song aka the French national anthem):

We’ll hit the winning score 
You’ll hear the mighty roar!
