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!

A little known fact about us is that the ‘Wildcats’ part of the club was never an official part of the club name. A long overdue change was made to officially embrace the Sheffield Wildcats tag at our AGM so from now on we can officially say we are the Sheffield Wildcats. But we didn’t stop there! The club has also embraced the shift in reference to the sport. We have taken the decision to follow the lead of governing bodies in the UK and abroad by changing Roller Hockey to Rink Hockey. We’re excited at this new phase in the evolution of the Sheffield Wildcats Rink Hockey and Roller Skating Club.
Tomorrow see’s our under 13’s team travel to Manchester RHC to play their Northern Counties semi final cup match against Plymouth RHC. The match is to be played after 4pm at;
Ardwick Sports Hall,
225 Stockport Rd.
Manchester. M12 4DY
There is a public skating session on between 2 and 4pm so feel free to get there early and have a skate around. The same can be said of any supporters who wish to cheer the team. Take your skates and have a skate!
A massive thanks should go to Manchester Roller Hockey Club for holding the match for both teams and a special mention should go to Plymouth who are making a massive journey to play the game. That’s a big commitment which we hope the young Wildcats can step up to! Remember, the final will be played the day after in Middlesborough so there’s a lot to play for! Best of luck to both teams.
