"For every player to have access to coaching, to become the best player that they can be" St Ives HC coaching ethos
Thank you for visiting our website where we will keep you informed of all activities relating to St Ives Hockey Club.
St Ives Hockey Club was established in 1997, after the merging of St Ives Ladies HC to Huntingdon & District Men's HC. Since this merger, we have developed into a thriving club based in the market town of St Ives, Cambridgeshire and offer the opportunity for all members of the community to play hockey regardless of age, ability or experience.
We have 9 senior teams playing in leagues across the east of England, as well as junior age group fixtures for U8s, U10s, U12s and U14s.
Despite being surround by larger cities/towns, we have always strived to play excellent hockey and encourage our local community to participate in a sport we all love. Our club ethos is to create an environment that feels like a family, supporting and encouraging people, no matter their background or ability.
Hockey is such an inclusive sport and if you would like to be part of our hockey family then get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org or join a training night.
