Fraser Tech is a field hockey club in Hamilton, New Zealand. Our members come from across the greater Waikato region.
We are affiliated to the Waikato Hockey Association with teams entered in both the Men’s and Women’s Senior Division Grades.
The Fraser Tech Hockey Club was established in 1934. It is named after the Hamilton Technical College (est. 1920) and it’s original principal Whampoa Fraser. The Technical College eventually became two entities, Fraser High School and Wintec (Waikato Institute of Technology) that still occupies the original site on Garden Place Hill. The Hockey Club shares its proud name and history with Rugby, Netball, and Cricket Clubs in Hamilton.
Mr Whampoa Fraser encouraged and engaged youth in sporting activities to transfer that enthusiasm to learning. He embodied the old fashioned values that promoted community and family. The hockey club of his name tries to operate in this tradition, promoting hockey as a sport for all ages.
Also check the club’s Facebook page (and follow us) for the most up to date information.
Join us at the Fraser High Turf over the off season for a casual training session. Everyone is most welcome to join us, whether you are a Fraser Tech member or not. Invite your friends and family down for a hit around.
Life members Craig Armstrong and Will Kamp will be there to coach some skills, and run some drills. We’ll end with our standard social game.
