Leeds Adel Hockey Club is an amateur hockey club based at Leeds Adel War Memorial, North Leeds, with over 76 years of history. The club currently has six men’s teams, five ladies’ teams and over ten junior teams, as well as masters and mixed hockey opportunities. Leeds Adel Hockey Club offer hockey sessions for those aged 5 – 75 (and above!).
The junior section of the club is actively welcoming more juniors’ players to try hockey at our friendly club, no experience is required. The club is particularly interested in recruiting players aged 12 – 15, to boost our U14 and U16 ranks.
Leeds Adel Hockey Club has a wealth of energetic and enthusiastic coaches who offer excellent coaching every week, even in the pouring rain! We make sure that each team has a dedicated coach, allowing them to target specific areas for improvement and get to know all players in their squads. Our coaches and players have excellent relationships, all our junior players know their coaches well and enjoy their training sessions and games. All our age groups play competitively at a standard that is suitable for their ability, often having multiple teams entered per age group, allowing all that want to play in games the opportunity to do so.
Throughout the junior section we welcome everyone, with all players gaining an equal opportunity to trial for West Yorkshire squads, providing further opportunities to progress their hockey. To allow for the children to have best experience of hockey, our coaches have regular sessions to assist their professional development and keep up to date new initiatives, this is then translated into their coaching.
“I look forward to my time at Adel hockey club as the players and coaches are all friendly, and help everyone improve.”
Jay, U14 Goal Keeper
Alongside coaching, all junior players can enjoy a range of activities including team bonding, holiday themed socials, such as Halloween and Christmas socials, and hockey tours to other clubs. These events all contribute to a fun and friendly atmosphere at Leeds Adel Hockey Club, where all children feel valued and enjoy being active.
