Who are we?
Hello, and welcome to the Aberystwyth University Men’s Hockey club. We offer an inclusive and competitive environment for all abilities, enabling students to represent their university through sport.
We compete in two main leagues at the regional level. Playing against other Welsh clubs such as Pembrokeshire and Bridgend, we will compete in De Cymru 1 for the 2023-24 season. We earned promotion to this division in the 2020+1/22 season. We also compete in BUCS Western Division 3, and is your chance to play against other universities such as Bristol, Swansea, and Cardiff. As well as these two leagues, we play in the Varsity match between Aberystwyth and Bangor, with recent results 3-2 and 1-2,showing the competitive, yet sportsmanlike, relationship between our two universities.
Give our Facebook page
a look if you would like to read match reports from the past academic year.
If you have told us that you are available for a game, you will play (provided we can get you in the bus!). We do not hold trials to pick new members, as some of the sports clubs within the university do, so do not be afraid to come down to the 3G pitch (#weneedanastro) at any point, regardless of your hockey ability. We can guarantee that you will not be the only “new to Hockey” member there.
If you have never played before, then do not worry. We offer beginner oriented training sessions at both the start of the academic year and after the January exams period. These will help you to understand both the rules of Hockey but also the basic skills required for the game. Alternativley, you can contact us on a range of social media or E-Mail which is linked at the bottom of the page.
What we do
As a club, we also enter teams into the annual Superteams competition, and host Hockey 7’s, an event that raises money for Mind, our mental health sponsor. In the 2022 Superteams, we entered two teams with one of them winning the event, stopping rugby’s streak and being the first Hockey team to win it in 7 years. The other team placed 11th out of 28 teams. Hockey 7's raised over £1000 for mind, showing our support for this important cause.
We also hold informal socials on Wednesday evenings, with a range of themes such as Star Wars, Animals and Pub Golf. We occasionally do joint socials with the Women’s Club, which can also be themed. These are always a lot of fun and offer you an opportunity to socialize with your fellow members off the pitch, helping to create and maintain lifelong friendships. On the formal side, we have annual Christmas and End of Year meals, which offer chances to get dressed up and celebrate achievements in the past semesters.
Aberystwyth Men's Hockey Club is proud to be dedicated to the inclusion and acceptance of all members regardless of age, race, ethnicity, ability, culture or nationality, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, religious affiliation, socioeconomic status and marital status.
