WHO ARE WE?
We are one of the biggest community based Skater Hockey Clubs in the UK, we are based in a town called Chipping Norton in West Oxfordshire.
Our Chipping Norton club was originally started by Dave Edwards in 2009, when he coached Street Hockey on the Worcester Road MUGA (multi useage gaming area), with the Playbus. Starting with a handful of players we have grown in numbers and now train at Chipping Norton Leisure Centre.
We proudly field teams at Peewee, Youth and Junior levels - competing in the BISHA South Skater Hockey League (ball) as well as Peewee and Youth in the BIPHA Midland recreational puck league.
Our enthusiastic teams play a full contact, skater hockey sport with a ball, we play for fun and to win. We are part of the Southern Association of Skater Hockey (S.A.S.H), which is part of the British Inline Skater Hockey Association, (B.I.S.H.A).
The club runs beginner sessions on a Saturdays from 3-4pm, where basic skills are taught, and supportive coaches, team members and parents are present to give a hand. All kit is provided at beginner sessions. Every child or adult is very welcome. We are a club who love playing, coaching and watching roller hockey.
The last Saturday of the month is when we run our Roller Disco at Chipping Norton Leisure Centre, 4.00-6.00pm.
We welcome anyone to this club, of any age and any ability. We do not judge, so skate for fun, you may fall and spin, but don't give up, no matter what!

Ball matches are played at Bordon, Hatfield or Bisley. Puck is played at Lutterworth.
So what is roller hockey? It is an up and coming team sport, played by two teams on a smooth surface. This fast, high energy, full contact game consists of 18 minutes each half all overseen by two qualified referees. Each team consists of defenders, attackers and a goalie; four players plus the goalie are on the court at any one time, the players use ice hockey sticks and a puck or ball to score in the opposition's goal. The matches are always electrifying to watch, and exhilarate to play in.
Chipping Norton Skater Hockey Club players, parents and coaches are noted for cheering the loudest at all our matches and have won the fair team award, many times.
Chipping Norton Skater Hockey Club has already had a number or GB representatives at multiple events across the world competing against the world's best.
