Calling all new members!

Looking to get back into hockey or to try for the first time?

Whether you haven’t played since school or have been inspired by the GB Olympic medal winners to pick up a stick for the first time we would love to welcome new members!

We have 5 mens teams and 4 ladies teams and of course a junior section too so whatever level/age you are there’s a team for you. There is no formal team selection process but if you attend training you will play matches and move up or down the teams as appropriate.

Senior/Student training starts again at Rushmere on Tuesday 17 August (men) from 7.30-9.30pm, and Wednesday 18 August (women) from 7pm to 9pm.

Junior training will return on 12 September and will take place every Sunday morning. The U8s, U10s, U12s and U14s will train from 9-10.30am, and the U16s from 10.30-12noon.

If you’d like to come along to a training session to get a feel for the club please contact us (by email to harrietcelerier1994@gmail.com – we are in the process of sorting our current enquiries email inbox so please use this email address in the interim). Please note you will need to fill out some forms (due to COVID) and we will of course provide you with these to you once you’ve messaged us.

See you soon!

Book now for Junior Hockey Camps this half term holiday

Following on from our successful holiday training sessions last summer, we have launched some Half Term Hockey Camps.

They will be running at the Sports Centre on Tuesday 1 June and Wednesday 2 June, and are open to anyone who’d like to have some holiday hockey fun!

  • Suitable for all ages and abilities from Reception to Year 11
  • You don’t have to be a current IES player to come – invite your friends! This will be a great chance for them to experience the fun of hockey
  • Players will just need shin pads, a gum shield and suitable clothes and footwear to run around outside on our astros. We have hockey sticks to borrow.
  • On Tuesday we will have guest coaches from Surbiton Hockey Club leading the training, including their director of hockey coaching, Will Fulker, and a representative from their ladies 1st team.
  • On Wednesday our coaches will include members of the IES men’s and women’s 1st teams, as well as our IES Juniors young leaders and coaches.
  • Each day will include skills training and fun sessions for outfield players and goalkeepers – and those who have never picked up a hockey stick before. Our skilled coaches will tailor our camps to fit the abilities of all.

The camps are split into two sessions – a morning one for primary school children and an afternoon one for high school children. Within these sessions there will be small groups running. You can book for one day or two days, and each session of 3 hours costs just £10 per child!

IES Hockey Club Bulletin 05 January 2021

Dear all 

As you will have no doubt understood from the Prime Minister’s announcement yesterday evening, the new lockdown means that ALL club hockey is suspended for the time being, both for seniors and juniors. This is likely to remain the case until the middle of February.

The East League are hoping to resume adult leagues at some stage, with matches potentially being played in March and April. Whilst teams will not now be able to play the entire fixture list it is likely that leagues will be decided on average points once all teams have played each other at least once. We don’t yet know what is happening with the Junior competitions.

Of course, we will continue to monitor the situation, and hope that we will have some better news to share with you soon.

In the meantime, we hope you all stay safe and thank you all for your support for IES.

IES Club Bulletin 02 November 2020

England Hockey have announced a suspension of all hockey from Thursday 5 November to Friday 4 December following the government’s lockdown announcement on Saturday.  Sadly, therefore, this means that there will be no hockey for either the Juniors or Seniors after adult training this week, which will go ahead tomorrow and Wednesday.

The club will carefully monitor the situation to ensure that we are prepared for a return to action.

For the senior section, this could see league matches being played on the 5th, 12th and even the 19th December. Equally with access to facilities likely to be an issue for some clubs and no certainty that the lockdown will end on 4 Decemberwe may encounter a longer delay.

For the junior section, if the lockdown is lifted, we may be able to return to training on Sunday 6 December, but we will need to wait and see as to whether the scheduled EH matches for the U14 and U16 girls will go ahead on that day, or whether they will be delayed.

As always, we will keep you in touch with developments as we know them.

Stay safe
