How Hockey Victoria Used Social Media Platforms
To Increase Their Engagement With Customers

Hockey Victoria (HV) is the state’s peak body for everything Hockey related.
From the top level State squad right down to grass-roots players, HV is it.

General Manager
Hockey Victoria

Great service and very personable and proactive staff. Our organisation has been with Aston Social for the past two and a half years, and in this time our social media messaging has become very consistent, relevant and timely. This has led to more than 100% growth in across each of our social media platforms. I would not hesitate in recommending Aston Social to anyone wanting to streamline and professionalise their social media presence, and grow their following…

The Challenge

With competition from other codes, participation is key for Hockey Victoria, and as part of this, HV is aiming to increase registered participation by 5,000 members – and social media plays a large role in this.

The Strategy

Increasing membership isn’t the only thing important to HV. Inclusion and diversity are key to their business and again social media plays a large role in this. Aston Social created a number of new content streams that gathered significantly more engagement than other more ‘result’ driven content, by engaging the hearts of the audience, not just their minds.

The Result

Women in sport is a major focus for HV and as a result, Aston Social helped HV launch a new promotion with a supporting advertising campaign focused in increasing the number of women participating in Hockey. A supporting competition was run to improve engagement as well as increase the number of fans following the page.


Sometimes magic is just someone spending more time on something than anyone else might reasonably expect.
