BLACKROLL® joins The Hockey Australia Corporate Family
We are very happy to announce our new partnership with the elite sporting organisation, Hockey Australia, who values leadership, integrity, excellence and inclusion.
The initial one year deal sees BLACKROLL® Australia become the Official Supplier of Athletic and Recovery Tools Partner of Hockey Australia, including the Kookaburras and Hockeyroos.
Hockey Australia exists to provide Australians with the opportunity to participate in hockey from recreational junior levels through to elite senior competition, including the Olympic & Commonwealth Games. It is responsible for delivering these benefits to Australian hockey members through its member States and ensuring hockey in Australia achieves consistent success, a strong positive public profile and continuing player, officiating and spectator support at all levels.
“We welcome BLACKROLL® Australia to the Australian hockey family and look forward to a mutually successful partnership,” said Hockey Australia CEO Matt Favier.
“BLACKROLL® have developed an excellent reputation and this is an area of our High-Performance network that has not been fully capitalised on.”
“The equipment and partnership will provide significant benefits to our athletes and contribute to our national teams continuing to be a force in world hockey.”
Director and Certified Blackroll® Trainer Chris Heppeler, who established BLACKROLL® Australia, said the company is excited to become the official supplier of athletic training and recovery tools for Hockey Australia.
“This partnership has the ability to strengthen our ties with professional sports in Australia and provide a source of information and effective tools for injury prevention, performance and self-care to the hockey community,” said Heppeler.
“Our goal is to work with Hockey Australia and provide them with state of the art equipment and education on the elite level, as well as making similar benefits available to all members and players in Australia.”
BLACKROLL will supply HA’s High-Performance Programs with all of the tools and equipment required for prehab, warm-up and recovery.
There will also be a host of discount offers available to the broader hockey community as an additional component of the partnership.
