The 2023/24 Program is currently running. Nominations for the 2024/25 Program will open in August.

The Central Coast Academy of Sport is pleased to provide Hockey to it’s sports program offerings with the support of Underwriting Agencies of Australia (UAA), Hockey NSW and the Central Coast Hockey Association. The UAA hockey program will provide a unique opportunity for local hockey players looking to gain further individual skill development, education related to sports performance and competition opportunities that will assist them in their journey on the hockey pathway and for life outside of sport.

The CCAS, together with UAA, Hockey NSW and the Central Coast Hockey Association have developed an elite junior development program including on field and off field components, with a major emphasis on individual skill development and game sense.

The purpose of the hockey program is to:

  • Provide an environment for the athletes to develop
  • Give access to quality services and programs as they progress through the Hockey pathways
  • Prepare athletes for the Hockey season ahead due to this being an ‘offseason’ program.
  • Provide a coach education program for Regional Academy coaches, with the support of Hockey NSW Regional Coaching Coordinator (RCC) Network

The Central Coast Academy of Sport UAA Hockey program is designed to up-skill athletes and assist them in progressing to higher representation in the sport.  The program operates during the months of October to April, athletes will progress and be assessed against the FTEM Model of athlete development; Foundation, Talent, Elite and Mastery.

To be eligible for selection into the CCAS UAA Hockey program scholarship athletes must:

  • Be 15-18 years of age in 2024 (Born 2006, 2007, 2008 & 2009)
  • Not be a scholarship holder in the Hockey NSW Futures program for the same term.
  • Reside and/or go to school or play in the Central Coast Local Government Area (LGA) to qualify for selection. With residential address being the primary selection criteria.
  • Be a registered primary member of a Hockey NSW affiliated Association
  • Only be a scholarship holder in one Academy annually.

The CCAS will select a squad of male and female hockey players, who are of the highest standard regardless of position. Selectors will focus on the individual skills of athletes rather than a teams performance. A selection panel of CCAS coaches and independent coaches will review each applicant.

The CCAS decision regarding athlete selection is based on objective and subjective measures and the CCAS holds final responsibility for the selection of athlete’s into this development program.
