If you just want to attend training for fitness and a bit of fun, that is fine. If you find that your circumstances change or you gain confidence such that league matches appeal then we can always start to introduce you to Saturday matches or the odd friendly game.
The absolute basics are a suitable hockey stick, shin pads and a gum shield. It helps to have some good trainers designed for artificial pitch use to make sure you do not slide around. Studded boots are not suitable. Many hockey players wear hand protection too as the ball is hard and depending on the pitch the playing surface can be very sandy. Other than that it is a pair of shorts/skort, long socks and a tee shirt. Our club shop can provide all the clothing you need for training or matches.
Training is essential if you want to improve your skills. However, if your commitments prevent you from attending training then we understand and it is still possible to play for one of our teams. We always welcome new members and getting people on the pitch is the most important thing. If you find you can attend training at a later date then that is a bonus.
Matches are usually any time between 12:00 and 17:00 on a Saturday. Sometimes rescheduled or cup games can be played on a Sunday. Our current teams play in the North West leagues. The higher the league the further the opposition may be away from Lymm. Our away games can range from Keele to Bangor to Keswick and to Macclesfield. Most games are actually within Cheshire and within an hour of Lymm.
