To foster, encourage, develop, administer and play the game of hockey locally, regionally and internationally, at the highest international and professional level
The Jamaica Hockey Federation (JHF) was formed on January 31, 1998, through the amalgamation of the Jamaica Men's Hockey Association and the Jamaica Women's Hockey Association. The JHF is a member of the international governing body of hockey, the Federation International de Hockey (FIH), the regional body, the Pan American Hockey Federation (PAHF), and locally, the Jamaica Olympic Association (JOA). This brings us to the management and organization of hockey in Jamaica in conformity with international requirements that there be a single national association responsible for the development and regulation of the sport in each country.
The JHF has it headquarters at Mona, and has recently installed a state- of the art, international all weather artificial playing field which now allows for the development of players and the sport to world class standards.
The facility also allows the JHF to host major international competitions, and already the FIH and PAHF has identified Jamaica as being an ideal geographic location for this.
The JHF membership is divided into two classes, namely:-
- Full Membership open to Clubs, Associations
- Individuals and Affiliate membership open to Schools.
The Board of Directors comprises of seven (7) members, led by a President. It is elected Bi-annually at the Federations Annual General meeting. Board members serve a term of two years. The current members of the JHF Board are as follows:
The Council is made up Clubs, affiliate Associations and individual Members, and is responsible for the administration of the rules and regulations which governs the sport
