The SWSAS program is a link on the established Hockey NSW pathway and through our lead coaches Nathanael Stewart and Nicole King, we are acutely aware of the attributes required for hockey athletes to progress on this pathway. Our focus is; equipping athletes with the required skillset, enabling transition into State Programs and Senior Representative Hockey.
