In 1978 the Association was formed and started their first competition on the tennis courts at Mahogany Creek. Only one season was played here due to resident complaints of noise and disruption. We commenced with six women’s and five men’s teams.
Our next move was to the tennis courts at Harry Riseborough Oval. The courts were larger which allowed us to expand the competition.
Our first Junior competition was held on the tennis courts in Chidlow. The competition included under 10’s, under 12’s and under 14’s. Due to the popularity of this competition, the Association made the decision to have a full Junior competition from under 7’s through to under 17’s. This is a decision the Association has never regretted.
The Mundaring hard court complex was built and the Association moved to this venue. The move was to our advantage due to the growth in the numbers of teams.
The Association has had seasons with as many as 105 teams nominated in the competition.
A junior umpire’s panel was formed. These junior umpires are umpiring junior teams along with a tutor.
A number of young men from the Hills Night Hockey Association have been selected at the Junior Indoor State level.
Perth umpires are asked every year to officiate at our finals games.
The competition includes nominations from many schools in the district, from Wundowie to Woodbridge and from Swan to Kalamunda.
Three members of the very first committee remain hard-working members of the Association to this day. These are Mary Ball, Rodney Powell and Laura Powell.
The Hills Night Hockey Association is a member of the Mundaring Combined Sports Association.
Hills Night Hockey Association has a great rapport with the Mundaring Shire and we have a major say in most changes to the Mundaring hard court complex and was core to the design of the new Mundaring Arena complex.
We have a player and spectator Code which we strongly adhere to. The Association is very aware of Duty of Care and Risk Management. We have board assemblers, first aid officers, and canteen officers serving health food. All committee members are always accessible to players and parents. The Association provides full goalie gear and indoor arena sticks to all teams. Fees are within every family’s budget.
