Who We Are
The Kew Boxhill Hockey Club was founded in 1905 and is the oldest hockey club still in existence in Australia. It has seen two World Wars, evolved with name changes, home ground renovations, uniform updates, rule changes, resurfacing and mergers, but remains a highly-regarded family hockey club within Hockey Victoria.
Fielding 29 teams in Juniors, Men’s, Women’s and Master’s competitions, KBH welcomes all players of every ability from across Victoria, Interstate and Internationally. Affectionately known as The Stables, our home ground is located in the City of Whitehorse, nestled within Mont Albert North's Elgar Park.
We are passionate about the development of our players from grassroots to the Premier League, and offer a range of specialist coaching including the KBH Hockey Academy, Representative team trial preparation and Mini-Brumbies skills sessions.
Established in 2022, the KBH Academy is designed to hone the skills of our Junior players under the tutelage of our Director of Hockey, Steven White, MPL Coach Marty DeMann, and assisted by our high-performance athletes. Find out more about our Grassroots development program here.
At KBH, community and culture are the twin pillars of our club. With key focuses on inclusion and development for each member, we strive to provide the best training and development for every player, of every ability. It is our mission to continue the growth of our competitive Junior development program, and foster our culture of belonging and inclusion across each grade, section and team.
Our Junior programs offer development of players from U10 - U18, with offerings from Hookin2Hockey and Mini Brumbies development days, to club initiatives such as Junior summer sixes, our 6 week Academy program and Pre-season with our Premier League teams. With multiple Junior teams winning premierships in 2022, we continue to strive to increase our numbers of participation, player improvement, and importantly, the love of the game.

We are the Brumbies wild and free,
Tough and exciting is what we’re here to be,
We run the ball around on the way to victory
And they’ll never ever tame us cause we’re the Brumbies!
Stick to your guns and play with pride,
From the back to the forward line - Our system is divine.
Standing on the half line taking on the best,
Proud to be at KBH- A Brumby on our chest!
