We are a welcoming and LGBTQIA+ inclusive social hockey club based in Perth, Western Australia.

About Us

Everyone is welcome

Sport brings people together.That's why we welcome everyone from complete beginners to experienced players, all members of the LGBTQIA+ community and our allies.Come be part of our growing family!
Never played hockey? No worries. We'll teach you.
Played for years? Awesome - you can teach us a thing or two!
In summer, our social teams play and train together every Sunday.In winter, we don't hibernate. We play in the wider Hockey WA competition for a variety of Perth clubs.Why?We're not exclusive, and we want all sports, all codes, all teams to be inclusive.While homophobia can sadly find its way into many sporting cultures and clubs, we believe that the best way to combat this is to be out, proud, and active within our communities.There's a reason we play with pride.It's because we believe it creates change.

Leaders of change

We are committed to continuously growing and learning as a community to make sure we are fostering the most inclusive and safe space we can for all our members.Perth Pythons received a silver rating from the Pride in Sport Index for 2024 and we will working towards achieving the gold next year!

We care about all our members, if you ever have anything you’d like to speak to us about confidentiality please reach out to [email protected]
