Welcome to Lee Valley Lions Junior Ice Hockey Club
At Lee Valley Lions Junior Ice Hockey Club we aim to develop all players' skills, physical abilities and team spirit to enable them to take a full part in competitive ice hockey at a level appropriate to each individual. We do this by providing regular, structured training and when players reach the level of ability required we provide opportunities to play in one or more of our teams which participate in national leagues.
We have five teams competing in leagues organised by the governing body for ice hockey in England, English Ice Hockey Association (EIHA). Each team will have a coach, manager and trainer. All of our coaches are qualified within a framework of coaching development laid down by the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) which governs ice hockey worldwide. We update our list of teams and team officials annually. The current list is available on the club Contact page.
