Westlake currently fields 10 hockey teams, playing at a variety of levels. Our 1st XI and 2nd XI teams taking part in the Supercity competition, which pits them against some of the top schools throughout Auckland. The rest of the teams compete in the North Harbour competition where they notch up top honours on a regular basis.
Registration takes place in April each year. Most of the trainings take place on our tennis courts, whilst our merit teams train at Westlake Girls on the new blue astro turf, either in the mornings or afternoons. All our merit teams are coached by highly qualified teachers and Westlakers who have dedicated their time and expertise in developing our players at all levels.
We have several exchanges during a year against Hamilton and Tauranga Boys as well as participating in an annual Quadrangular tournaments. Our U15 team also take part in the Tanner Cup. The Hockey boys have had a fantastic opportunity with overseas trips during the last few years. Since 2011 our Hockey teams have travelled to Singapore, Germany, Holland, Belgium, France, England and Australia.
Hockey remains a popular, traditional sport at Westlake, succeeding in forming many friendships and helping the boys develop a sense of discipline and learn many of life’s lessons.
