Summer Championships

summer champs
England Hockey has launched a brand NEW summer offer including summer leagues and knockout competitions, perfect for both current and new players that love to play in a relaxed, fun social environment.  
The Summer Championships have been designed to create a relaxed, fun and social environment of out of season hockey for players of all ages, abilities and backgrounds.

The England Hockey Summer Champs has three strands of competition:
  • Hockey Small Sided Leagues (six-a-side)
  • Summer 6s Championships (six-a-side)
  • Masters Summer Championships (O30s/O40s/O50s)
Teams can be formed not just by clubs but also other social groups, e.g. businesses, university students at home for the summer, friends from different clubs etc.

Hockey Small Sided Leagues (six-a-side)
Looking for a fun, social yet competitive form of hockey outside of the regular season? Then this could well be for you. 

The leagues will be locally organised and there will be separate men's and women's matches using a six-a-side format that was successfully trialled during HockeyFest on Tour. The leagues will be round robin and hosted at clubs/venues where the infrastructure for small sided games and social facilities already exist - these will be determined once we know which teams have entered. 

The matches themselves will run on midweek evenings over a four week period.

More information and specific details on the Small Sided Leagues will follow.

Summer 6s Championships (six-a-side)
This championship is perfect for both keen hockey players and those more occasional players looking for an enjoyable competitive activity. 

Starting regionally and with the chance to progress to 'Area' and 'National' finals, there will be separate men's and women's knockout championships. The fixtures will be played across three Sundays in June and July 2018.

Masters Summer Championships
This tournament is perfect for those masters players who want a new activity without the need and challenges of playing two games per weekend in the regular season or have experienced being restricted by other commitments such as coaching.

There will be an 11-a-side knockout tournament run for O30s, O40s and O50s for both men and women.

Knock out Championships localised in early rounds, with greater distances as Championships progress. Tier 2 Championships for early round losers. National Finals for both Tier 1 and Tier 2 to be played at a central venue.
