GET INVOLVED WITH MENS HOCKEY AT STAFFS!!
Staffordshire University Men's Hockey team.
After a fantastic season for improvement and an incredible year of socials. The hockey team is back and ready to prosper like never before!
The Staffs teams family atmosphere is the strongest of all the teams here at staffs. Hockey is a fantastic sport for all athletic abilities with a great way to improve your fitness and also have a great laugh with the team. After a improving season last season we'd love to have you join to see what hockey is all about.
We train twice a week, with matches on a Wednesday against a variety of teams in our league. The standard is a variety from people who've never played before to hockey wizards! But something you can always count on, is our ability to have a great time!
Not only do we enjoy our pitchtime but we also have incredible socials. (Not to brag) this is when we all come together before a student night out and discuss vital hockey tactics of extreme importance, over a beer or 5! This is fantastic for boosting our team moral and you can always rely on the team to pick you up if you're feeling blue.
Come on down to one of our 'give it a go' sessions....
...Or text any of the committee for any questions you have...
...Or feel free to drop into a training session all you need is trainers!
Without doubt, the most important event of the season is the annual Varsity game against Keele University, our local and not so friendly rivals. This is the "Big One". Having lost the previous year, the 2018/19 campaign will be our attempt at revenge.
BUT, that's not all, we also go on tour each year to a European location. We are still yet to decide on the destination but either way it we be a lot of fun, sand, hockey and drinks! Last year's voyage to Porec (Croatia) was a fantastic experience and fun for the whole team!
IF you can possibly stand anymore excitement throughout the year, add to it the traditional and once again annual Old Boys Weekend where previous years players return for a few drinks and a game or two and you have a great year to be part of men's hockey. So at the very, very least just give it a go, what do you have to lose other than your memory from the night before?! It doesn't matter if your a seasoned club player or trying it out for the first time, you're more than welcome to come and knock some balls around. We will be at both the Stafford and Stoke Campus Freshers fairs as well as hanging around during freshers week, just approach us any one of us friendly bunch for more info.
We look forward to seeing you all in September and hope you can be part of another great season for Staffs Men's Hockey!!!
