History

The Club

Formally the SAIT Hockey Club, (South Australian Institute of Technology), the name changed to UniSA Hockey Club in 1991 with the passing of the University of South Australia Act.
The clubs first woman’s team was established in 1970. It is believed that the first men’s team was established around the same time. The Men’s B1 team won its first title the following year in 1971 and was promoted into A2’s.

From its beginnings the club has been home to members from across regional South Australia. In later years players from across Australia as well as international students from dozens of countries around the world, who have come to live or study in Adelaide, have been represented in our teams.
