The summer is well and truly underway and the Wildcats are busy trying to raise funds for 2018! If you can spare the cash or can help sell some tickets we’d all appreciate your participation. We have some great prizes on offer and all the proceeds will go towards the costs of the kids training and teams throughout 2018. If you haven’t got yours already or you think you can sell more then please contact a club member to secure the chance of winning a prize or two.
The draw takes place at our Under 13’s home tournament of Sunday 17th June at the Concord. Please put that in your diary and come along to support the team in their last tournament of the season. We’d love to see a big home support cheering them on!
We’re excited to announce our Summer Raffle tickets are now on sale. Members of the club will be able to sell you tickets so please don’t miss out. We have plenty so please make sure you help the club with this fundraiser. The money will go towards the running of kids teams and registering players for next season. We need to raise as much as possible so all contributions are greatly received.
What do you have a chance of winning we hear you say? Well, amongst the top prizes we have:
A Family day ticket to the brilliant Cannon Hall Farm.
A Laser Quest shoot out pass for five people.
A Climbing experience for two people at The Foundry in Sheffield.
A fun Swegway ride at Swegway Park, Sheffield.

Best of luck everyone!
We are pleased to announce that we are restarting the adult senior sessions on Wednesday 2nd May. Initially it will be a 12 week program to gauge interest and whether we can hack the pace anymore! We’re opening the doors to all adult players with playing experience for now. If you used to play and fancy dusting off the cobwebs then don’t worry, we haven’t played for a while either so you’ll be in very good rusty company. These training sessions are all about fun first and foremost. So if you miss playing, put some WD40 on those bearings, give that smelly hockey bag a hose down and come and join us. What are you waiting for?
We’d love to see as many faces there as we can. Make sure you’re one of them!
Wednesday 2nd May 8:00pm > 9:30pm for 12 weeks+
Over the coming months we’re looking to expand our numbers and training times but we can’t do it by ourselves. Do you or someone who LOVES skating but has nowhere to do it? Look no further Sheffield! Bring your skates, come and say hello to us at the Concord Sports Centre! Our kids train every Wednesday night from 6:30 until 8:00 so what are you waiting for? We’d love to see you there.
If you’d like some extra info on what the Wildcats are all about, we can also be found at https://www.facebook.com/sheffieldwildcatsrhc/
At Hockey+ this weekend we’ll be having goal keepers try outs. If anyone has ever thought ‘I’d like to give it a go’, now is your perfect time. We have goal keeper team positions available in all our age groups: Under 9’s, Under 11’s and Under 13’s. We still have a lot of hockey to be played this season so there’s every chance of a game or two. Please register all interest by the end of training on Wednesday. We have enough pads for 5 or 6 new goal keepers so all we need now are kids to fill them. All levels and newcomers are welcome!
2018 is going to see a lot of positive change for all the Wildcats family. Part of that change is extending our training times to include a more intensive session for team players on each first Saturday of every month. We’ve called it Hockey+ to reflect the step up from our Wednesday sessions into something more intensive so we can push our players onto greater things. If you fancy giving this a go then the session is open to all proficient team players. To all those who don’t play for the Wildcats, if you’re at a loose end and your team doesn’t train at this time then pop along and join in!
The dates for this are;
Sat 3rd February 1:00-3:00
Sat 3rd March 1:00-3:00
Sat 7th April 12:30 – 2:30
Sat 5th May 12:30 – 2:30
Sat 2nd June 12:30 – 2:30
Sat 7th July 12:30 – 2:30
All dates are to be held at;
Concord Sports Centre, Lower Sports Hall
If you don’t currently play with the teams then keep pushing yourself, we want to see new faces at future Hockey+ sessions!
