Lithgow will be sending two representatives to the National Masters competition, to be held on the Gold Coast from September 27 to October 5.
Veteran representative Cheryl Rutherford will be in the starting lineup of the over 60's.
She has been a member of the NSW team since 2002.
"It gives me a lot of satisfaction, I love to play hockey at that level," Rutherford said.
"Some people think of Masters and think it would be quite slow, but it's not, it's quite a fast game. The hockey is at quite a high level generally."
For Lithgow's Tracey Baker, this will be her first time competing at the NSW Masters. She will be part of the Over 55's.
"I tried back in the 35's and haven't trialled since, I just thought this year I'd give it another go with the experience I have gained," she said.
"To see if I could do it, a lot of people kept saying I should do it and I had a lot of backing from my family and friends so I thought I'd give it a go."
Mostly, Tracey was looking forward to gaining the experience of playing high quality hockey.
"I'll see how this year goes and I might give it another go next year," she said.
"I think it'll be one big challenge overall but it will be an exciting experience.
"Thanks to everyone for backing me up and giving me the confidence again."
Selections were held in Newcastle in June.
The national Masters squads will be selected from the NSW competition.
