The University of Lincoln Hockey Club is one of the largest mixed societies on campus. We are lucky enough to host 5 teams across varying levels of ability. Our Men’s 1’s, Ladies 1’s and Ladies 2’s all play regularly on a Wednesday in competitive BUCS leagues. Whilst our social teams, the Men’s 2’s and Ladies 3’s, compete in inter club and local matches throughout the year.
Our members range from never having played before to players wanting to develop their skills, improve their fitness and play at a high level. No matter what your previous experience there is most definitely a team for you. We also have fantastic links with our local club, Lindum HC, for which many of our members train with and play for on a Saturday.
Competitive membership includes at least two training sessions a week with dedicated team coaches. Social members are also offered the opportunity to train during the week with their own coach. The Students' Union offers social sports on a Thursday for which they run a Rush Hockey session, this is open for free to all members for a fun run around with friends and of course to have a catch up about the night before.
Not only will ULHC offer you fantastic opportunities and resources for you to succeed within Hockey but our lovely Social Secretaries also provide us with weekly socials including fancy dress, pub crawls, challenges and games as well as offering non drinking socials such a pizza nights, quizzes and other great activities. Socials are a great way to get to know the wider society and develop friendships that do truly last forever. We have several opportunities throughout the year for previous society members who have since left University to return for matches and socials which are always fantastic days.
Each year we are able to enter all our teams into Varsity matches against Hull University which always proves to a great day fuelled by University competitive spirit. We also have the opportunity of going on Tour abroad with the University through I Love Tour which has always proven popular throughout the years and provided endless memories and fun. As a club we also have the option of going on tours over the Summer break namely over the past few years to Milton Keynes, a weekend full of hockey, camping and maybe a few beverages.
If you’d like anymore information about ULHC you can find us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, just search University of Lincoln Hockey Club to catch up on all the latest goings ons.
All of our clubs and societies are run by a committee.
A committee is a team of people that lead, organise and publicise a group within your Students’ Union.
It can be really rewarding as well as being a great way to gain experience and invaluable skills for your future career.
