You are receiving this email because you told us that you wanted to play summer league this year.

We can now share with you the plans for the LHC Summer League 2022.

As with last summer the games are mixed gender and mixed ability, from performance players to juniors starting senior hockey. All games will be played on Wednesdays with either a 7pm or an 8pm start time. Games will cost £5 per session. We have not split teams by playing position because its summer! Why not try playing somewhere new?

We are waiting on Sports Park Weetwood to confirm which pitch we are using.

We have set up a webpage on the club website with links to the rules, squads, fixtures, results and the league table. You will need to be logged into the club website to view the page. The link is https://www.leedshockey.co.uk/seniors/socials/summer-league-2022/

You can also find out which squad you are in by going to the ‘My Teams‘ page under the My Player menu when logged into the club website. At the moment each squad has 13 or 14 people in.

At the at the moment, we only have five goalkeepers available for the eight teams. If we do not get any more sign ups then the keepers will roam between teams and will be asked to play both games in a session.

We will use the club website for availability (just put in when you can’t play in the section called Omissions within the ‘My Profile‘ page) and selection (‘My Selections‘).

The club will provide umpires for this league. The club always needs more umpires so if you would like to have a go at umpiring, please let us know by email [email protected]. Umpires will be paid £10 per game.

We have included some FAQs at the bottom of this email.

If you have any questions regarding the summer league please let us know by emailing [email protected].

If you are having any issues with the club website, please email [email protected].
