What are Back to Hockey sessions?
A fantastically fun way to try something new.
Back to Hockey is fun, social and informal. With sessions aimed at men and women of all ages and abilities. For those that want to get back into physical activity but may not have played hockey for a number of years, along with those who want to play for the first time and try it out. Essentially anyone, of any ability, can get involved in this sport without fear of judgement. Do not worry if you are a little apprehensive, unsure of the rules or worried that you won’t know anyone, our Back to Hockey coaches will gently guide you through a series of fun and interactive sessions, all in a super-friendly and relaxed environments. Each Back to Hockey session will see you develop your individual skills and take part in small-sided friendly games. Many players have also told us they’ve also got fitter as Back to Hockey sessions can burn up to 450 calories.

As well as re-discovering yourself, you will make new friends along the way too. We'll aim to provide opportunities for Back to Hockey players to meet up and socialise too. Simply visit www.blackheath.co.uk or email info@blackheath.co.uk for more details.
