Ice Hockey

Junior Hockey Team

Want to try your hand at ice hockey, the fastest sport in the world?

Bradford Ice Arena is host to hockey teams starting with under 9’s to an adults recreational team and all of the players had to start somewhere.

Bradford Ice Hockey Club organise and run a beginners training session on a Wednesday evening at 5:30pm every week. During the sessions they teach basic skating for ice hockey alongside game skills and training practices. The sessions are trained by qualified coaches, many of whom are experienced players with direct involvement with the Hockey Club.

The coaches split the attendees into ability groups to train on the ice during the session, regardless of age. It is a requirement that those attending can skate forward and stop, and ideally skaters would have reached level 4 in the Skate UK programme.

There is no need to book for the session which lasts for one hour. Skaters are asked to turn up around 10 to 15 minutes before the start time so they have time to put skates and helmets on in preparation for training.

All children attending under the age of 13 must be accompanied by an adult.

Once skaters reach the required ability levels the coaches will invite and encourage participants to join the relevant age team (further details of club and team membership are available during the sessions.) Children under 10 years of age are normally encouraged to join the team as soon as possible, regardless of ability, to encourage participation and improvement.

It’s never too late to learn to play hockey. This session is open to children under 15 years of age wanting to compete or just get fit, have fun and feel like they are part of something.
