I’m Still Not Sure Hockey/Fjordhus Reivers is Right for Me
Playing a sport is a commitment in time and money, and we know it is sometimes hard from initial impressions to judge whether a club has the right opportunities for you. We would invite you to get in touch with our lead coaches,
Janet Jack firstname.lastname@example.org mobile: 07766056937

You may have never played hockey before but as the sport’s exposure in the media increases you may have thought it looks like a fun competitive sport to try.
You may have tried hockey at school but not pursued playing in a club before. Or you may have terrible memories of hockey from school on a cold muddy pitch that bear little resemblance to the fun fast sport hockey is today.
We think hockey is great because:
- It is a fast technical game. You can learn the basics quickly, but still be mastering your skills after decades of playing
- It is fun and sociable team sport
- Rolling substitutions help make it a tactical game and one where you can rest during the game, and re-enter the fray revived
- It is played at all ages. You can start at 6 and still be playing, even at international level at 60
- It is played equally by men and women, boys and girls.
- It can be played outdoors or indoors
