HOCKEY IN SLOVENIA
Since 1949 Fieldhockey is was started, when Officer Šubat brought the sport from Zagreb, Croatia.
That year was also established the first club (Ljubljana and Together) in Ljubljana. 1st home games were played early 1950. The Club in Ljubljana was also the National Team and played against hockeyteam from Zagreb. Also a Board for fieldhockey was established. This led Slovenian hockey till 11 April 1965., where during the assembly the cuerrent Hockey Federation was established..
New Leaders were Peter Liberšar, President; Alkesander Šeruga, Vice-President; and Jure Zlokarnik, secretary..
In 1950 was the most intesive competion as the number of clubs in the National League were 9 teams.
The next major step for the Slovenian Hockey Federation was 1991, when Yugoslavia split and the Slovenian Federation was granted membership of the EHF and FIH. With these memberships fieldhockey improved in Slovenia.
Slovenian clubs started to compete in European Cups and there were also 2 womens teams established. Slovene clubs alsocooperated with the EHF to host Championships for Men and Women.
Today the main activity of the Federation is to make the sport more popular and also more wellknown in Slovenia.
One of the main strategies is organising hockey camps, which prepare children from 6 till 14 Years during the Summer holidays.
