Biography

Selwyn Maister played hockey at Christchurch Boys High School and later earned a Rhodes Scholarship to Oxford University. There he earned a blue for Oxford, representing the university in hockey for three years. Maister competed internationally for New Zealand first in 1965 and eventually competed in three Olympic Games, captaining the New Zealand national team in 1973-74. At all three Olympic Games (1968, 1972, 1976), Maister was joined on the team by his younger brother Barry. He later became head of Applied Sciences at Christchurch Polytechnic, staying in that position for 30 years, before becoming head of the Canterbury Regional Sports Trust. Maister also has coached hockey, as an assistant with the New Zealand women’s team, including at the 2000 Olympics, and has coached the Canterbury women’s team and coaches men at the club level in Christchurch.
