Minkey (Kindy to Year 4) is a modified form of hockey designed to introduce children to hockey. The games and rules are changed to ensure a simple and safe version of the game of hockey. The game is played on a smaller field with two 20 minute halves with a 5 minute interval. Goals are not recorded in the Minkey competition as skill development is the main objective. Swanbourne Primary School participates in the Minkey competition, run by the Westside Wolves club. With around 10 teams registered each year, Swanbourne tops other schools in participation.

Minkey is for boys and girls from Kindy to 4. It does not matter if the players have not played before. The competition is split into three levels: Kindy/PP, Junior (year 1), Intermediate (years 2 & 3) and Nines (year 4).
The teams are school-based teams and students from years Kindy to Year 4 can play. There is also a skills-based session for Kindy children who want a skills-based introduction to hockey rather than the regular matches each week.
