The Phoenix Thunder ice hockey team was created in 2008 in Dunedin, New Zealand.
In 2023, a new leadership culture has been set-up to promote and develop local players in priority. Lead by general manager, David Richards, the vision of the Phoenix Thunder as an organisation is to develop young leaders by teaching them the foundations of high performance. 90% of the Phoenix Thunder’s players are students from Otago University based in Dunedin. The Phoenix Thunder is run by a talented and dedicated team of 8 volunteers – including coaching staff, sharing the same vision and values for the team.
