At national level, each year the Men’s Masters Australian Championships are contested between representative teams from each state and territory member association. The Championships are some of the biggest hockey events in the country.

The men’s competition begins with the 34+ age group through to the 80+ division. Some 1,800 players and coaches plus supporters descend on the host city for two weeks of great hockey and even better camaraderie.  Current age divisions at Men's Masters Championships are 34+, 40+, 45+, 50+, 55+, 60+, 65+, 70+, 75+, with the introduction of 80+ in 2023**.

Each division is hotly contested and many friendships are formed or renewed over the duration of the championships. 

Players, Officials and the Off Field teams look forward to the announcement of the teams selected at the championships to represent Australia at Masters World Cup, Trans Tasman or other touring events as available.

2024 Women's Masters Training Schedule 

The inaugural Australian Women’s Veterans Championships were held in 1985 in Melbourne following a 3-day carnival in Canberra in 1984. The ACTHA hosted an invitational tournament with teams from ACT, NSW, Queensland, South Australia, Tasmania and Victoria.

Players were so keen to continue the concept of veterans hockey that a motion passed at a dinner voted to make the tournament an annual event. Victoria offered to host the next tournament and invite participants from every state/territory.

The response was overwhelming. Two divisions were established, with the larger states sending teams for both divisions.

From 1989 the divisions became age qualified, with an over 35 division and an over 40 division. In 1994 an over 45 division was added, 1998 an over 50 division, 2003 a 55s division and in Hobart in 2009 a 60s division.

In 2011 the name was changed to the Australian Women’s Masters Championships to align with international recognition. A 65s division was introduced in Hobart 2016 and 70+ is looking positive for 2023.  Current age divisions at Women's Masters Championships are 34+, 40+, 45+, 50+, 55+, 60+, 65+, 70+.  

Australian Women's Masters teams are selected from the championships to compete in Masters World Cup, Trans Tasman or other touring events as available.
