Preseason training commences Tuesday August 14th for all


Pre-season training starts on Tuesday 14th August from 7-9pm and continues every Tuesday and Thursday for the month of August from 7-9pm. Tuesday training involves a mix of physical and skill exercise, Thursday training will be more skill orientated.

[pullquote style=”right”]We hope you all are having a great Summer and are looking forward to getting back into hockey over the coming months![/pullquote]

Why are we doing pre-season training?
The purpose of pre-season training is to get peoples fitness up to a good level before the season begins and to dust away those hockey cobwebs! We have dedicated coaches who will take these sessions and monitor people’s performance.

On Saturday 1st September we will start to play friendly matches so we can assess new and current members performance, this allows us to match individual skill levels with other members and group people into provisional teams. Once selected on a team, you will be told what particular training session to go to and which day you will be training on. Team training days will take place on either a Wednesday or Thursday throughout the season, with physical and skill for all on a Tuesday.

Remember….. it is really important to come to pre-season training because in the interest of fairness and transparency, selection on any team in the club will be based on attendance at preseason training and performance in the arranged trial matches. However, if you are unable to attend some or all of the pre-season due to injury or holiday arrangements, do not be disappointed if you are not selected on the team you aspire to play on, we have a team of selectors who will be monitoring individual performances at the beginning of the season and teams will be adjusted accordingly!

We are delighted to announce our Senior coaching line up and the times for training for the 2012/2013 season:
