Ex South African hockey player Simon Martin, established Pro Series Indoor (commonly known as PSi) in 2005 with the idea to grow indoor hockey in Southern Africa at the Primary and High school level. The concept started in the Western Cape and quickly spread across South Africa and Namibia. It continued to grow and soon reached all the provinces of South Africa, and added Zimbabwe to its places of influence. 

 

PSi has staged over 60 National Tournaments, with an international flavour in years past with tournaments in Ireland, England and Netherlands. We also love bringing in the international flavour to South Africa, and regularly stage exhibition games with some of the world's top indoor hockey players, such as Robert Tigges, Marlena Rybacha and Moritz Furste to name a few.On top of this, PSi is proud to have been a crucial step in the development of over 40 senior international hockey players for South Africa and Namibia.  

PSi has grown tremendously at regional and National level due to the hard work and dedication of the regionals organisers. Each region is run by an ex South African or Provincial hockey player/coach, and all are giving back to hockey in a positive manner.
