This week we have the amazing BL Men’s Hockey as our Sporting Focus! Get the low down on everything you need to know about this club and why you should get involved.
What days and times do you train? Where do you train?
Monday 6pm - 7.30pm on the Olympic Hockey Pitches at Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre.
What makes your training sessions enjoyable?
We cater to all levels! For training we split in to the 1st team and the 2nd team, both of which have their own coach in charge of running the sessions. The 1st team have a high standard of Hockey, catering more for those who have played for a long time at school, or those who have played some sort of club/county level Hockey. Meanwhile the 2nd team is for those who are slightly less experienced, all the way through to people who have never picked up a hockey stick before! We work on a variety of hockey skills including ball skills, in game tactics, and fitness. We format our sessions around the needs of the players, so even if you've never played before, don't be afraid to come and give hockey a try!
What was your club’s biggest success of the past year?
Having ended last season with a 3-1 victory against QM in the Merger Cup, it's fair to say we're picking up where we left off. So far this year our 1st and 2nd team are set to be pushing for promotion in their BUCS leagues, with the 1st team also pushing forward on their Cup run.
So why should people get involved?
Whether you're looking for some high level competition or just a way to keep fit, Hockey is a great sport to get involved in. We also have a social calendar filled to the brim with events such as Pub Golf, Party Bus, and a domestic and international tour!
