The high-performance investment funding, administered by the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries will support Hockey Australia and Hockey WA in their Paris 2024 Olympic qualifications processes for both teams.

It will support athletes and staff to focus on quality preparation, including the mental and physical training required to best position both teams to win Olympic gold. It will also support their training ahead of the Oceania Cup in August 2023, which is a qualifier for the Olympic Games.

In December the State Government, Hockey WA and the Western Australian Institute of Sport were successful in their combined $135 million bid to keep Hockey Australia’s High-Performance Program in Perth. 

As part of retaining the program, the current facility at Curtin University will be transformed into a world-class hockey facility with 3 international hockey pitches, a specialist goalkeeper training facility, an indoor hockey centre and extensive recovery, gym and support facilities.
