Oceania Hockey Federation wishes to acknowledge its key sponsors:
SELECT SPORTS - JUST HOCKEY AUSTRALIA
Just Hockey Australia and Go Hockey NZ has been a very supportive sponsor for the Oceania Hockey Federation. The main methods of their support has been in :
1. Donation of Umpire and Technical shirts for all Oceania Events. This has allowed all our officials to look professional.
2. Equipment Supplies and Advice on Types of Equipment to the Pacific Island Members
Lance Forkgen and his team provide equipment lists at very favourable prices to members and transport gear to them when required. The advice that is available is also very helpful to the developing nations.
AUSTRALIA MASTERS MEN
Australia Master Mens' Organisation has become a significant contributor to the Pacific Island members' development opportunities.
Initially a grant was given to OHF to help with safety equipment - mouthguards and shin guards for Vanuatu to safely take part in their first Oceania Pacific Cup.
However, in 2012 Australian Masters Mens representative, David Peebles, spoke to OHF re the willingness to support the development of officials. As a result Epeli Tukuca (Fiji) was fully funded to attend the Masters Mens National Championships where he gained valuable practical experience and mentoring. Epeli has now been made an FIH Umpire after attending the Youth Olympic Games in 2014. OHF is looking to select a new participant for inclusion in the 2015 National Masters Championship and with the help of Australia Masters Men pathway opportunity develop the next Epeli!
