Bunker Boys Hockey Session Information

So you can skate “a bit” and always fancied trying ice hockey
or used to play when your trousers were a little shorter &
would like to get back into it?
Our sessions may be just what you have been looking for.

Who

Typically we have all ages, but our average age is
around 35, 20 being the youngest and 55 the oldest. Provided you
are over 18 and fit and healthy then you are welcome. Male or
female equally welcome. We have lots of husbands/wives,
boy-friends/girlfriends

Ability

For beginners – Skating – provided you can skate
around the rink without assistance or needing to grab the
sides then you meet the minimum. Reasonable stability is all
that is needed. If you ski or roller skate then you have a head
start.

Hockey

No experience is needed. If you have some racket
sports, team sports or hockey experience that is a great
For Intermediate – you will be a confidant or better skater and
have played hockey before.

Safety – Both beginner & intermediate are non-checking
sessions, this does not mean non-contact, Hockey is a contact
checking sport. The difference is no “intentionally” body
contact is allowed ie checking. When fighting for the puck you
may find you collide or do contact your opponent or your teammate
.

No player may play without signing our medical/ form,
this is also our contact form, which we text to advise of our
sessions, you can be removed from the contact list at a time.
You warrant that you are fit and healthy to play and if in any
doubt please contact your doctor.
We recommend private accident insurance, although major
injury is very rare.

Fun

It’s not high intensity, you will be pushed though,
otherwise you won’t improve our emphasis is on having fun
and enjoying & improving. We always have a “scrimmage” or
game at the end with even teams & Ice time (whistle subbing)

Levels

In the beginner you will be taught how to play
hockey, skate like a hockey player (although it’s not pure skate
instruction). How to shoot, pass correctly and the technical
skills of hockey. The instruction is predominately designed to
improve your “skills” bank so you can play hockey, tactical
training is only focused in our intermediate session.

Our intermediates will benefit from higher level varied tactical
and technical training that will stretch you physicaly but also
mentally, start to think more about your game.
