Both they and our women's first teams compete in the top divisions of their respective national leagues. To date, 60 of our members have gained full caps for their country.

Our club sides represent us in the regional and the district leagues and we provide a platform for every level of ability and experience.

Our enormously successful Junior section provides coaching for young people of all ages and levels of experience. We run numerous teams for boys and girls at U10, U12, U14, U16 and U18.

Summer Camp 2016
Summer Sessions

Wildcats run Wednesday evening sessions for women, with a focus on fun, fitness and friendship, for beginners who have never picked up a hockey stick before, to those who have been away from the game for a while and want to polish up their rusty hockey skills. These provide an opportunity to get a bit fitter, learn new skills and play team hockey in an informal, fun and sociable environment.

There will be hockey sticks available to borrow, participants should wear sports clothing, astroturf shoes or trainers, shin guards if you have them and bring water for rehydration.

Sessions take place from 8-9pm on the following dates:
    15 June
    22 June
    06 July
    13 July
    20 July
    27 July

If you have any questions, contact Rona Stewart through the contact section of the website.
