On the morning of Sunday 5th Oct, Amazons across the south coast were preparing for the big match-up with the Oxford Midnight Stars. By 1600 we’d all had one last pre-game meal, had a slightly unorthodox, but very effective warm-up and were finalising one last time in the changing room the plays for the evening. Intrepidly we made our way out onto the ice for warm up and then catastrophe! - one of the Oxford players had a very unfortunate clash with the boards and the wait for an ambulance led to a delay of the start of the game.
Solent Amazons Ladies Ice Hockey Team, Gosport
Hello! We are a lively and dynamic group of ladies with a great sense of fun who like nothing more than taking to the ice every week to smash some pucks at each other and take on the boys at 'their' own game! We are open to anyone who can skate and with the help of our dedicated coaching team, do our best to produce budding Wayne Gretzkys in no time. Aside from our wonderful sport, the best thing about our club is our players - from a whole range of social backgrounds and ranging from in age 16 to mid-50s, we even have a killer mother/daughter combination!
We train once a week at 8pm on a Thursday evening and have our games every two weeks or so at weekends - if after being inspired by the winter olympics you want to know a bit more why don't you come along and watch us play? Okay, so we aren't top of the league tables yet but we work hard and always do our best to put on a great performance! All our coaches are EIHA trained and qualified, DBS approved (CRB) and first aid trained.
