The Altona Hockey Club, Inc. is administered by a Board of Management of a maximum 10 members.
Each of our board members is responsible for key areas of hockey operations both on and off the field, and currently the AHC Board is supported by an official junior sub-committee, you can view the organisational structure here.
All board members are volunteers, so please support them in their efforts and any contribution you can make in any form is welcome.
If you are interested in helping at board or sub-committee level, or on a casual volunteer basis, please contact a board member or email your details to [email protected].
I began playing hockey at the Altona Hockey Club as a 14 year-old after enjoying hockey at school and have now been involved for more than 20 years as a player, coach and administrator. I have loved the opportunities that the AHC has offered me on and off the field while maintaining such a strong friendly and family atmosphere. Being a member of the board is a chance for me to give back, while ensuring a strong future for the club.

I began playing hockey when I was 4 years old in the Minkey Program and with over 20 years involvement at the Altona Hockey Club as a playing member I am proud to be a part of such a family orientated environment.
I have played in various teams from juniors through to premier league, both in the net and on the field, but my true love for the club comes with my passion to coach our up and coming goalkeepers and to organise the clubs social calendar. I look forward to being able to give back to the wider AHC Community in the best way that I can.

I was somewhat late to the hockey party, picking up my first stick in my late 20’s. I came to the AHC in the early 1990’s and spent 3 very enjoyable years as a player and coach, loving all aspects of what was and continues to be a great family and community club. I returned in 2011 when my eldest son Harry joined the club to further his hockey ambitions. It didn’t take long for his younger brother Mack to follow – AHC being such a welcoming environment for players and supporters at all levels. It was such a warm and satisfying homecoming for Bron and myself.
For over 90 years the commitment of AHC’s volunteer base has underpinned our longevity and success. As a board member I have an opportunity to contribute in some way so that the club can continue to thrive in the future.

There hasn’t been one part of my life in which I haven’t been around or part of the Altona Hockey Club. Being the 3rd generation of my family to be a part of the Altona Hockey Club I don’t think I could be anywhere else even if I wanted to. The positive effects of growing up amongst such a family orientated environment has entrenched a loyalty to the club beyond it just being a playing member.
I have been afforded the opportunity to play for the club through juniors and now into a place in the Men’s Premier League side, represent the club at regional and state level in both indoor and outdoor, coached junior sides for club, region and state, umpired at all levels and am now grateful to repay those many opportunities by stepping into a role on the AHC Board. I hope to provide many others with the excellent experiences I have been fortunate enough to have from this wonderful club.

Facility Development & Operations
I loved playing hockey as a kid and still enjoy playing now. It’s a sport that’s hooked me in. I have 3 boys and know the importance that sport can play in personal development.
I grew up in Altona, not far from the hockey club. I have early memories of Cyril Turner line marking the grass on a Saturday morning and hammering in the corner flags; Ted Philipps coaching me in U13 when I first started playing hockey; oversized sticks; junior hockey carnivals which were great fun. A lot has changed in the sport and at the club since then.
In the past I coached junior hockey at the club for many years which I really enjoyed. Coaching is definitely a two-way learning experience. My approach when coaching was to build a connection, set goals and to challenge. I think this is true for sport and in general for progress and to realise or to unlock potential.
I look forward to being involved in the future direction of the club. I hope to hammer in a blue and gold flag and raise it high. There will no doubt be more change but I’m confident there will be progress for the club as well.

Inclusion & Social
Contact Bronte at [email protected]
From a hockey family who played on grass, roller and ice, I started playing in the UK as a young junior ‘colt’ at Cheam Hockey Club. After having considerable time away from the game we joined Altona HC for our sons to play and I was enticed back to run on the turf once again, albeit in a more social capacity.
My aim is to bring to the Board the viewpoints from parents and team players, and I look forward to welcoming new members and potential sponsors to support our fantastic club.
Do get in touch with any ideas that help us maintain the positive connections and experiences our members value so highly from being a part of this great sporting community.
