Junior Lessons

Bradford Bulldogs Ice Hockey Club is one of the leading junior clubs in the UK, winning many awards, tournaments and trophies along the way. The Club is now looking for new recruits, particularly for the U10s and U12s squads!

Beginners’ ice hockey lessons are held every Wednesday 5.30 – 6.15pm, to assist children to work towards joining the team, improve their physical abilities and take part in a sport that has a fantastic team spirit.

Players must be aged under 16 years and be able to skate to a basic standard. Players will need their own skates (boots can be borrowed for the first few sessions) but helmet and stick hire is included.

Qualified coaches guide children through the basics of skating, balance and agility before moving on to puck control, passing, shooting and small area games.

Cost per lesson is only £5.00. There’s no need to book, just turn up!
