The IES Club Day will take place on Saturday 3 September. This will take a slightly different format from previous years, and will consist of a series of short matches to help coaches, captains and others select our new teams / squads for the early part of next season, including the transition of Juniors into Senior sides, and it will also help with the development of our U12/U14 Junior sides.
1.30-2.30pm – Junior matches for boys and girls in school years 7, 8 and 9 (from September)
2.30-5pm – Senior matches for all over 13s, including those in Year 9 who are eligible to play senior hockey
5pm – Refreshments in the bar.
The match fee for ALL players will be £5. (If Year 9 players are taking part in both parts of the afternoon, they only have to pay once!).
Saturday matches will start from 10 September – and the league season starts on 17 September.
Please sign up for the Club Day 3 September afternoon so that we know who will be attending. This event will be an important part of selection this season, so we hope you will make every effort to attend.
Just a reminder that the club AGM will take place on Thursday 30 June at 7pm at ISSC. Please try to attend what is an important meeting as we look ahead to the new season. Members should have received an AGM Information Pack via email.

We are excited to announce a new Back to Hockey programme at IES. Whether you have never played hockey, or haven’t played for a while, these fun sessions for adults will build your confidence on the hockey pitch.
The first session will take place on Sunday 15 May from 9.15am to 10.15am. This has been timed so that parents can drop their Junior hockey players at their training at 9am, and then come for some hockey fun themselves!
To join in, just come along to Ipswich School Centre and speak to Moira and Pete on Sunday morning. You don’t need a hockey stick or other equipment (unless you already have something at home), just comfortable clothes and trainers for running around, and a refillable water bottle.
We are hoping to run these sessions on Sunday mornings until the start of July, but there will also be a special Back to Hockey training on Saturday 25 June as part of the Charity Day – people can sign up for the June session here: https://forms.gle/Kmv8b9bKFywh5Fok6
If you are already an IES hockey player – please pass this on to anyone you know who may be interested in starting to play hockey!
We hope you’ve had a great Christmas! To get you back into hockey-mode, we are planning some senior social intra-club matches for Saturday 8 January at Rushmere.
These will be open to anyone aged 13 or over (from the senior and junior sections). Cost will be £10 (adults) and £5 (students/juniors). Time – 11.30am. We hope to be able to provide refreshments afterwards.
There will be a mixed hockey match in addition to the M4/M5 match already scheduled.
Please complete your availability on the form linked below, by Mon 3 Jan 2022.
2 – Junior section Sunday results (new Area League)
U16G beat both Felixstowe and Harleston Magpies 1-0 in their triangular tournament at home
U14B lost to Norwich Dragons 0-1 and to Ipswich 7 0-2 in their triangular tournament at home
U14G drew 0-0 against Norwich Dragons and beat Harleston Magpies 1-0 in their triangular tournament away at Harleston.
There were many positives, as well as learning points, for all the junior teams, but mainly it was just great to see them back in competitive matches. For many in the U14s this was their first competition in over a year, and the first time playing 11 a side full pitch hockey. Thanks to the senior club for supporting with umpires and to all the coaches and parents for shouting from the sidelines!
Two teams of U12s will be taking part in a mixed hockey tournament at Ipswich High School this Sunday – good luck to the teams.
