Hockey Australia has agreed a two year partnership with Curtin University that will see them collaborate on research, media and marketing activities.

The relationship will provide Hockey Australia with access to Curtin students, facilities, research and resources, including projects that directly assist with the on-field performances of Australia’s national men’s and women’s hockey teams, the Kookaburras and Hockeyroos.

While Curtin students and staff will be granted learning and research opportunities across areas including sport, physiotherapy and exercise science, media and communications, and event management.

Added to the agreement, Curtin University’s logo will appear on the playing jerseys of the Kookaburras and Hockeyroos.

Curtin University’s vice-chancellor, Professor Deborah Terry, said: “Our researchers will assist Hockey Australia to maintain its competitive edge with projects including one by the School of Physiotherapy and Exercise Science that will use Curtin’s climate chamber to study the effect of climate changes on Hockey Australia players.

“The School of Design and Art will undertake a Uniform Design Capability project looking at potential improvements to the playing kit of Hockey Australia such as adding smart devices into the design to assist with player management.”
