So what is Reading Hockey Men’s Section like?
We are constantly looking for ways we can improve and strengthen. We have a strong offering for every type of hockey player – a rare quality for most hockey clubs!
The beauty of our culture is that we offer this range of “hockey products” to suit all needs on an inclusive basis. We all interact with, and appreciate, each other for our shared passion of a great sport! Our dream is to continue to grow and have a bigger impact on our local environment, both socially and to raise the profile of hockey in our region.
Developing our existing talent, as well as attracting fresh new talent, is the only way our section will continue to thrive. If you’d like to be part of our team please contact our Men’s Club Captain, Chris Powell at firstname.lastname@example.org
Our Performance Squad welcomes anyone wanting to compete, or already competing, on a National or International level. This encompasses our 1st and 2nd Teams, and our focus is on continuous development and creation of a pipeline of talent for years to come. Entry to the Squad is usually through a pre-season trial, but we welcome anyone aspiring to compete at this level.
We have three teams playing on a selection basis. We have attained a high level in the South Hockey and Regional Leagues and constantly strive for greater achievements and promotions. If you have moved to the area, or feel that you need a bigger challenge than your current club offers, there is plenty of scope here at Reading!
If you are looking to play a more sociable style of hockey, playing with a group who enjoy a relaxed approach to training and playing, good conversation and perhaps a nice beer afterwards, there are plenty of others here seeking the same thing. We run two social / development sides where the focus is more on enjoyment. Speaking of that beer and chat, our clubhouse is great! We are more than happy to rent out part, or all, of the clubhouse for social events. There are several rooms and a well stocked bar – perfect for any size of party! For more information, click here!
For more information on each of our squads, please visit each team section. There, you will find an introduction from the captain, details of the coaches and the team members. Please feel free to contact any of the captains to find out more about joining us. OR simply join us at one of the training sessions detailed above, introduce yourself to the Team Captain or the Coach, and join in!
Looking forward to seeing you at Reading Hockey Club this season!
