A short history of the OM's Hockey Club.

History

 

The Old Melburnians Hockey Club (OMHC) was founded in 1930. OMHC is a sporting section of The Old Melburnians society (OM’s), a very large alumni of the Melbourne Grammar School (MGS).

In 2019 we will field 2 teams in the Mens Open Hockey Victoria competition, a Vic League 3 side and a Metro side. Our teams play a diverse group of opposition both in size and geographic location including other School affiliated clubs, regional clubs and large metropolitan clubs such as Hawthorn, Altona and Camberwell. We also play in the VHA summer competition.

Traditionally a club underpinned by the social aspect of competitive hockey, the OMHC has in recent times been implementing steps towards raising the standard of both the on and off field performance and professionalism of its teams. With the support of various sponsors over the last 5 years the committee and senior leadership of the club have been able to provide a higher standard of coaching and resources available to the players and have seen both the culture of the club and performance of the players increasing immensely.

We aim to further build on this progress and continue to develop the club with the support of our members and sponsors.

Our Vision

 

To be recognised as a successful hockey club, where individuals are provided unparalleled opportunities for development in a safe, secure, supportive and professional environment.

Provide a pathway to MGS school leavers to retain their link to the school through sport.

 
Our Club’s vision is to ensure a quality pathway for all MGS hockey players into a positive club culture while continuing their association with the School and the broader Old Melburnian community.
