Attendance is key as we start on the road to an exciting and ambitious season with promotion restructured across the various National and Regional leagues to accommodate the changes to the National League from 2019-20. There are also key promotion spots up for grabs for the 2's and other teams in NWHL and CWHL as the divisions will re-structure all the way down to manage the changes in the National League.

So a big season for the club, squads and all the players - but success will only come with hard work, focus and commitment from now til the final whistle so lets get on it !

Hockey Camps are back with two lined up for August on 1st - 3rd August and 28th - 30th August led by Albert Marcano. See news items and fliers for more details and how to book.

Academy Pre-season

We are currently finalising plans for summer training for some academy members as in previous years to prepare for the badgers and beavers fixtures starting in early September - more details to follow. Sessions will be on a Tuesday evening during 7th - 28th August 2018. Times and sessions to be confirmed. Invites will be sent to players to attend.

Get your THC kit ready for September - order now !

Monday 9th July 2018 - last chance to order for delivery at the beginning of September.
Go on line and take a look at the range (with some new items) to place orders. Kit is made to order and be-spoke to THC so it is all manufactured in batches linked to the order dates so don't miss out order now. If you want to check anything out on items call SilverFX to discuss.

Please email - if you need a shirt number allocating to avoid duplication. Playing shirts are provided for ALL senior teams - but we know more and more players prefer their own club shirt. White THC away strip shirts can also be ordered.

Sponsorship, advertising and donations

Fund-raising will have a new twist this season are we not only need to raise funds to support the delivery of hockey (as subs and match fees only cover part of the costs of delivering all the hockey we offer).

We've a new flier being produced to promote the full range of sponsorship and advertising options we will be sharing soon - with new options ranging from £50 - so if you work for or know of any businesses who you can ask to support THC and hockey at the club help us with an introduction - we'll provide all the information you need.
