“Hockey SA Ltd is very pleased to announce the appointment of Darryl Buchanan to the position of Chief Executive Officer, and we look forward to Darryl’s commencement in his new role on Monday 30 April 2012,” said Ms Helen Stone, Chairman.

“Darryl will bring a wealth of knowledge to his new role, having spent the majority of his life involved in sport and sport administration including more recently from his position as CEO with Wheelchair Sports Association of SA, a position he held for the last 5 years.

"Darryl is a fellow of the Institute of Public Accountants (formerly the NIA) and has also been a past Board Member of Hockey SA so he understands the complexities of working with national organisations to develop and deliver the sport from grassroots to elite levels."

Darryl joins the organisation at an exciting time, as Hockey SA is ready to commence a comprehensive marketing strategy in line with our current strategic plan, where there are strong objectives for growth. Currently there are over 8,000 active participants in Hockey in South Australia and we plan to grow this by 10% in the next 12 months.

"Darryl in his role will also oversee the current Hookin2Hockey program which will actively see over 5000 primary students taught the sport of Hockey at their local school, which also includes regional area,” added Ms Stone.

Hockey is an established sport in SA, having been founded in 1903 in Adelaide and now has 22 metropolitan clubs and a strong presence regionally with the 11 Country Regional Associations.
