The Central Otago Hockey Association (COHA) is calling for the community’s input on a draft strategic plan that is being developed for the region.

With hockey experiencing its highest participation numbers within Central Otago, that means the team support is strong and the practice and match turfs are busy. The COHA said they want to keep this momentum going and ensure the sport continues to be enjoyed throughout the region by players, families and enthusiasts.

The Central Otago Hockey Five-Year Strategic Plan focuses on supporting the people carrying out administrative duties, developing facilities that best serve the clubs and players and encouraging participation across all levels. The plan intends to focus volunteer energy into these key areas to help Central Otago hockey positively and proactively develop and cope with the sport’s growth. 

COHA president Rachel Prendergast said, “We want to make sure that this strategic plan works for the people in our community. We therefore want to hear from the public, whether they are players, families or supporters, to make sure we are representing our hockey communities accurately and have captured the opportunities available to us.” 

For more information on the draft strategic plan, visit or email by July 29.
