Following meetings with Melton City Council and Hockey Victoria, Caroline Springs Hockey was incorporated in November 2016, by a group of like-minded hockey enthusiasts living in and around the City of Melton. With initial discussion taking place in the winter of 2016, those present identified that there was a need to form an organization that gave opportunity for children in the Caroline Springs and the Greater City of Melton to experience an Olympic sport, where little or no awareness is evident. Following discussions with players, supporters and potential sponsors, a feasibility study was prepared, using the data from Melton City Council and Hockey Victoria (HV). With a critical mass of “founding” members, it is clear that there is an appetite for hockey in the region, and so Caroline Springs Hockey was born. With a commitment to Junior development and mass participation, the values, vision and mission of the Club will lead to an explosion of interest in the Western growth corridor and ultimately lead to a development of the local Hockey Association.
