Welcome to South West United Hockey Club

South West United Hockey Club is currently the largest hockey club in the western suburbs of Brisbane. We cater to all standards of hockey players aged 5 to 75 in both grass and turf competitions. Our club was founded in the early 1970's and is based in the Graceville area of Brisbane however attracts and welcomes players from all over Brisbane.

This club is truly a volunteer run organisation, with the local community gaining immensely from the hours of dedicated service by its volunteer administrators, coaches, managers and umpires. We currently have a membership of over 300 players that compete in Masters, Senior Turf, Senior Grass, Junior Turf, Junior Grass and U9 and U7 Rookey competitions.

We pride ourselves on being a very welcoming and safe club and you will notice us for sure in our distinctive bright blue and orange uniforms and we're affectionately known as the Mighty Swooos.

If you are interested in playing hockey at any level, please contact us to find out more on season trial dates and times.

This is a very hands on role, where Phil will be running coaching clinics and junior player clinics (both grass and turf), exclusively for SWU members throughout the year with a major focus on junior athlete and coach development. He will also be rotating amongst our junior and senior turf and grass trainings to help our coaches so please make Phil feel welcome when you see him.  

 

Like so many others in our hockey community, Phil Jackwitz is a hockey tragic having played, umpired, and coached our great game.  It was in 2012 though that Phil decided to shift his Hockey passion from being a hobby to being a profession, and he hasn’t looked back.  Phil has since enjoyed stints at both the BHA; 2012 – 2015 and at Hockey NSW; 2015 - 2017.  Phil boasts an Advanced Level Coaching Accreditation and a modest list of coaching successes at both the local and state level.  In 2018, Phil joins the coaching ranks of South West United Hockey Club; dedicated to helping the club reach its goals.

We are also looking to field a Division 6 women’s team this season.  If you would be interested in playing in this team, please let us know as soon as possible.

 

We will also be fielding as many Junior Turf and Grass teams as possible, again, depending on numbers.  We have many very excited coaches (Brad Rogers, Angela Lindop, Ros Kirwin, Liam Crowhurst, Riaan Retief, Georgia Challinor, Jaime Ladbrook, Gillian Henschke) ready to start the season on the 21st January.  More updates will follow in early January.
